Full description
Start the tour with pickup from your hotel in Orosei, Sos Alinos, Galtelli, Cala Gonone, Dorgali or Oliena, then set off for the Lanaitho Valley. Begin the hike with a gentle walk through oak trees and Mediterranean scrubland.  Then, follow the path as it climbs the slopes of the mountain passing majestic Juniper trees and more imposing oaks. When you reach the top, pay a visit to a rocky cave and admire the ruins of the Nuragic village. Learn about the ancient Sardinians who used to live in this remote area. After the tour inside the cave, continue walking along the ridge of Monte Tiscali - the most scenic part of the trek. Be enchanted by the wonderful views all around and find a scenic location for your picnic lunch, either immersed in the woods or overlooking the valley from a panoramic rocky terrace. Finally, return back to the starting point and enjoy a convenient return transfer back to your hotel. If you prefer, ask the driver to drop you off at another location on the route back.

It was super nice! Even though we were a mixed group, the guild made sure she spoke in both German and English, such that everybody was able to enjoy the experience and understand the explanations about various objects from the road. We even went to the Sorgenti su Gologone afterwards, which wasn't part of the trip, but the guid went out of her way to take us there to enjoy some nice spring water

We did this excursion in the summer and despite the heat the accuracy of our guide to take us for most of the route in shady areas made the difference. Melina was a careful and precise guide. Tiscali is an enchanted place that I recommend everyone to visit once in a lifetime ...

The experience was truly excellent, with the guides being thoughtful to reorganise this trip when some unpredictable circumstances occurred. Both the way up and down were truly beautiful and not that hard to do. the visit to the archaeological site was insightful and I did appreciate our guide pointing out mountains, canyons and plants that we would find along the way.
