Mount Limbara

A paradise for trekkers of all ages


Mount Limbara is a rocky granitic massif in north-eastern Sardinia. It is the southern border between the historical and geographical regions of Gallura and Logudoro. The highest peak is Punta Balistreri, 1,359 meters above sea level. Its area belongs to the comuni(municipalities) of Calangianus, Tempio Pausania, Berchidda and Oschiri, in the province of Olbia-Tempio.

That said, when you arrive, you find yourself immersed in an almost untouched nature (the slopes of Mount Limbara were destroyed by a fire in 1936 that burned its old forests, made up of cork oaks (Quercus Suber) and holm oak (Quercus ilex) . The successive reforestation was made with conifers, characterized by its fast-growing) with springs and ponds, oak trees, and everywhere the typical “granitic stones” of Gallura and the breathtaking views. Amazing the amount of foreign visitors who come here to visit these forests and to enjoy a few hours of well-deserved relaxation walking in the woods or stopping in one of the many refreshment areas to have a picnic, or even pitching the tents by the side of one of the little lakes or streams that is possible to find here. Particularly suitable for trekkers of all ages, with hiking trails marked and maps placed throughout the area.

This year, the Monte Limbara will also host the first edition of the Gallura International Trail, a race for lovers of nature and sports, which will see a large group of athletes compete in these woods along two routes one of 80km and the other 40km with final pasta party and awards ceremony Saturday, September 19, 2015 in Tempio.

If you love good food and good wine, you’ve come to the right place. In fact, many wineries that produce the famous Vermentino di Gallura (see here or buy) or restaurants where you can taste the local delicacies such as the famous zuppa Gallurese or li pulilgioni (characteristics quality of homemade pasta prepared in this area).
