Waterfalls Tour

western sardinia family trip

Half Day Trip on board of Land Rover Defender, to explore some Waterfalls hidden in the wild mountains, and also some Volcanic peaks and viewpoints on the west coast.
"Montiferru" is the mountain area that embraces the wild hinterland of central-western Sardinia, in the province of Oristano.

The mountain landscape gently turns from wild lunar rock peaks to wooded hills.
The name "Montiferru" comes from the volcanic massif bearing the same name and which has been extinct 4 million of years ago.
The volcanic complex featured abundant lava eruptions that gradually created new lands both to the east, with the vast Abbasanta plateau presenting basaltic terrains, and to the west as far as the coastal strip.
