Your outdoor activities amidst unspoilt nature
Nature and outdoor activities. Get ready for many adventures!
Here at the Best Western Hotel Blumarea you can plan your holiday day by day, alternating the tranquil rhythms of rest with the sporting activities we suggest you try during your holiday in Castelsardo.
Canoeing & Kayaking - Excursions on the Coghinas River
Canoeing and kayaking are sporting activities suitable for everyone, regardless of age, physical fitness and level of training.
New Kayak Sardinia offers year-round hire, by the hour, of canoes on the sea and routes along the river Coghinas. Due to the very limited gradient of the river and the fact that there are no rapids, only a gentle current, the canoe descent can be enjoyed by anyone: professionals, but also families with children.
The longer of the two routes starts at the thermal baths of Casteldoria and ends after 11 km at the mouth of the river, after about 4/5 hours, in the beautiful setting of San Pietro in Valledoria.
Diving & Snorkelling - Breathtaking dives
The crystal-clear water along the Sardinian coast conquers more and more diving enthusiasts every year.
The diverse structure of our coastline, rocky that turns to sand, and the splendid marine fauna and flora provide magnificent scenery for both the professional diver and those who simply want to snorkel.
Batrakos Diving, in Castelsardo, organises daily trips with equipment and qualified staff, as well as diving courses for all needs.
Wind & Kitesurfing in Valledoria
Is the sea your passion? The wind and temperate climate create perfect, favourable conditions for wind surfing and kitesurfing at sea or on the river.
Various national and international competitions and championships are organised along the beach at San Pietro a Mare, especially in spring and autumn, when the mistral wind blows on the deserted beaches. The nature of the sea bed favours the formation of long waves that act as springboards for surfers. In the summer months, however, the winds are not so strong and create ideal conditions for teaching wind and kite surfing.
Paragliding - Paragliding along the sea
Not only on land or water, but also from above one can admire the wonderful landscape of our Earth from a truly unique perspective.
One of the most famous launching sites in the north of Sardinia is located in the area between the mountains of Castelsardo and Valledoria, a truly ideal area for weather and wind conditions.
Courses are organised by the Aeroclub I Griffoni in Sedini, about 10 km from Castelsardo.
Climbing & Free Climbing
Deep gorges and impressive, bizarre rocks along the coast: here, both the amateur mountaineer and the free-climber find their ideal environment. In spring and autumn, Sardinia captures the attention of traditional mountaineers, free-climbers and beginners who want to try their hand at this activity.
Climbing in gorges, climbing on red and grey granite rocks above the sea or rock climbing. Here, there is everything an athlete could wish for. And near Monte Ruiu, 24 km from the hotel, there is a rope climbing area, while in Laerru, 21 km from the hotel, there is the Conca de Caddu, a ravine in the cliffs, where 40 different routes have been created for climbers.
Besides the sea, Sardinia is also famous for its horses. A passion that has developed similarly with traditional horse breeding and horse riding as a pastime. The historical value of horses is linked to several important events: the Cavalcata Sarda, the Sartiglia or the S'Ardia Sedilo horse race in summer.
In Sedini, about 10 km from the hotel, there is a riding centre where courses for beginners and experts are available.
