EXPERIENCE

“To be whole. To be complete. Wildness reminds us what it means to be human, what we are connected to rather than what we are separate from.”

Terry Tempest Williams

GRIFFON VULTURE SAFARI

We will take you into the heart of wild nature in Sardinia. The coastal road to Alghero from Bosa is home to two colonies of Griffon Vultures*. This stretch of coastline is relatively untouched by tourism and provides excellent habitat for the Griffon Vultures. Driving along the coastal road to Alghero from Bosa is an adventure in itself. We will take you to some of our own personal favorites.

The best way to explore the Griffons life is along ancient trails, known only to generations of shepherds.

The vulture experience normally begins first thing in the morning after a short drive through the reserve,  followed by a trek on foot to reach the isolated mountain where the griffon vultures are most commonly found. We will visit a shepherd’s farm to highlight their way of life.

PARAGLIDING TANDEM FLY

With the Paragliding tandem, you can share the space in the air with Griffon vultures.  Paragliding tandem gives you the unique opportunity to interact with these birds and see the world through their eyes while you share the sky with them.
You’ll climb the thermals as they do. We will bring you in their world in a safe condition and if you’ll be lucky, you could share some moments with them.

Anyone can do it, no experience needed. Enjoy silently gliding with the birds over Sardinia.

*

*Thanks to the project Entulzu Bosa (Entulzu means Griffon Vulture in the local Sardinian language), this tiny remnant population of Griffon Vultures has been protected and bolstered by the introduction of birds from Spain and France. Legambiente Sardegna performs constant surveillance of the nesting sites all year round, and recently land at Capo Marrargiu has been acquired as a reserve for the species. However, the use of poison on animal carcasses to kill foxes and stray dogs is still common (albeit illegal) in Sardinia, so the birds are in constant danger of extinction.

  • “My son (15) and I (15+) did an afternoon of paragliding with Fabrizio and his girlfriend yesterday. It was amazing. They were both so friendly and helpful. We felt very safe and looked after. Once in the air, the panoramic view with the surrounding mountains (where the rare griffon eagles reside), clear skies and acquamarine coastline made it a once-in-a-lifetime experience that we will not quickly forget. Fantastic, adrenaline-fuelled fun with great people. Do it today, you will not regret it”

    Grelen. / London, England
  • “What an amazing week! very easy to book and quick to answered all my questions. We traveled to some of the most beautiful places i have been to. They were well prepared when the weather was not quite right for the activities. Great local food. Had a great time with great people. I would love to do it again.”

    Mieke L. / Netherlands
  • “To me, NuAdventure was as much a wonderful experience enjoying a new place with new (and like-minded) people, excellent food, and a real vacation (adventure!) from work, as much as it was a zen-like experience where I stepped outside of myself and my comfort zone…”
