Itinerary

This tour has it all, Bandits, Shepherds, Mountain tops, Wall paintings and a Unesco protected heritage; the Tenores. We start with visiting the Corbeddu-Sondaar cave, where a bandit lived in the end of the 19th century, almost a hundred years later archeological excavations in this same cave revealed the oldest human bones ever found on a mediterranean island.
Our next visit is the high plain in the Supramonte at 1200 meters where some scenes where filmed of the legendary movie "The Bible, in the beginning". At lunch time we have the possibility to go for lunch with the shepherds, that will serve you excellent local food like red Cannonau wine and roast pig. After lunch the Tenores sing their acapella songs for you, and to top it all of we visit the town of Orgosolo known for its Murals (wall paintings). Your guide will fill you in with all the details.

Robin is an excellent guide. He presented us with a well thought out day he was friendly easy to talk to his local knowledge is superb. We would recommend Robin and this tour. We chose to only have a light lunch and Robin was able to come up trumps with this.
