Enjoy the abundant flora and fauna as we criss-cross our way through the Maddalena Archipelago
Join us on the extended long swims version of our ever-popular swimming holiday in Sardinia as we explore the beautiful waters and stunning coastlines of the islands which make up the Maddalena archipelago. Our longer swims give you a wonderful opportunity to discover even more of one of Italy’s most picturesque locations.
This trip features an average daily swim distance of 7km and includes a combination of coastal swims, crossings and circumnavigations. The archipelago’s seven islands feature crystal clear waters, pink sand beaches, dramatic blue cliffs rising from deep sea beds and a series of coves and rocks which offer intense colours and beautiful vistas around every corner.
In the southern part of the archipelago, the two largest islands of La Maddalena and Caprera are a perfect base for some dramatic coastal swims, while the more remote and uninhabited islands of Spargi, Budelli, Razzoli and Santa Maria are great venues for some challenging island-hopping swims and a short circumnavigation. The main town of La Maddalena, a short distance from our base for the week, is a picturesque traditional Sardinian town, and an ideal venue to spend some time relaxing after our daily exertions.
If you would like to explore this part of the world, but are looking for slightly shorter swimming distances, please check out our Emerald Coast - Sardinia trip.
Who is this for?
This trip is for those who enjoy a combination of coastal swims and island-hopping and want to extend their daily swim distances a little further than on our other trips.
Swimmers should also have a basic understanding of open water swimming and be capable of completing the average swim distance of around 4km prior to the start of the trip. The average daily swim distance is around 7km (split over a minimum of two swims).
We have given this trip a ‘Challenging’ grading. These trips are for experienced open water swimmers who want to push themselves.
