Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean and a popular destination for visitors to Italy. The island consists of high, rocky coasts, impressive headlands, and an interior of rolling hills.

Alghero is a small city (pop. 44,000) in the northwest. The strong Catalan culture is reflected in the language and food. There’s plenty to explore, including archaeological sites, churches and cathedrals, ancient fortifications, and many beaches, bays and parks.

The sea kayaking will take place in the Porto Conte Regional Park. The park protects 60km of coastline showcasing an array of unique landscapes. More than 60 plant communities have been identified in the park, along with a wealth of bird species. You might get lucky and see Griffon Vultures circling overhead.
