Mocco Francesca


Libra professional, accompanies you all along the way, all year round.


 My name is Francesca and since I was a child I have always loved sports, nature, being outdoors and getting to know new places. So, as I grew up, I became passionate about hiking, canyoning, caving and climbing. This experience and interest of mine prompted me to become an Environmental Hiking Guide, transforming a passion into my job.
The territory where I was born and which I love very much immediately stimulated my curiosity, my spirit as a listener and observer and my desire to get to know the localities in depth. Sulcis-Iglesiente is in fact a territory rich in mines and therefore in things to discover. Since I was a child I liked “digging” within this fascinating world by listening carefully to the stories of the elderly and my father and “exploring” the mining villages so rich in history, mystery and energy. Thanks to those stories and those explorations I was able to get to know and appreciate all aspects of the world of mining. Today I accompany people to those places and I love telling them those stories with the same enthusiasm with which I lived and learned them.
The desire to analyze the territories in all their aspects prompted me to choose to graduate in Political Science with a focus on social politics. When I visit a place, I certainly like to delve into the naturalistic aspects and I also like to examine the socio-cultural factors that concern an area. Just like with the mines, this way I feel I get to know and understand the territories more deeply, their history and energy, especially in a land, like Sardinia, where nature and culture are certainly not lacking!
The aspects of a territory, the emotions and moods can also be captured and told in a different way, through photography. I love to take people on photography excursions. Outings in natural and mountainous environments of this type allow participants to slow down and follow a different pace from the classic hiking outing in order to be able to observe, catch the right light and immortalize moments that remain imprinted in images. Those images you look at and take you back to where you were and where you experienced intense emotions.
Social issues are very important to me and I’ve always liked the idea of ​​combining them with another important thing like sport. After my studies, collaborating with an association that deals with sports for people with disabilities allowed me to learn and gain experience on how to make places and means accessible even to people with disabilities. A teaching that I still put into practice today.
Let me guide you to discover places that you can see and feel in all their facets!

Pau Carla

LAGAP: 182

Freelancer, accompanies you along the way all year round.


I work full-time as an Environmental, Excursion and Tourist Guide.
I plan, organize and take care of every aspect and finally I lead walking trips, trekking, cultural tours especially
in Italy. Since this year I have also started to lead trips to Portugal and there is an interesting opportunity in Scotland and in the South of Spain as well as in Tunisia.
I have been organizing and accompanying groups on walking trips in Sardinia since 2018, from the north to the south of the island.
During the course of the year, I would very much like to offer my professionalism and collaborate with my expert local colleagues in accompanying people along the Santa Barbara Mining Trail.
I’m also available with regard to maintenance and reconnaissance of new trails, such as in Sarrabus.

After completing my university career at the University of Cagliari, I lived for over 10 years in Tuscany, a land to which I am deeply attached, not only from a professional
point of view .
Southern Tuscany in particular (Val d’Orcia, Maremma, Amiata).

The path that led me to carry out the profession of guide full-time, with all the nuances of the
case, dates back to 2009, when I attended the seminar on Sustainable Tourism with Ram Viaggi
conducted by Renzo Garrone.
Initially, finding myself a few years after graduating in Historical Artistic Heritage (Operatore per i Beni
Culturali) in Florence, surrounded by all the Art whose History I had studied at the University, I was determined to
take the Tourist Guide license.
Subsequently, the transfer to the countryside prompted me to start the training course to
obtain the Environmental Driving license.
It is in the mountains of Castell’Azzara (Amiata Grosseto), on the border between Lazio and Tuscany. which I started
work as a Guide starting from May 2012.
Soon, while exploring Southern Tuscany, I realized that to offer a complete product to
my collaborators (agencies, Tour Operators, Parks, etc.) and direct customers, having both licenses
would allow me to create unique experiences.
Even Sardinia, where I have returned permanently since the summer of 2019, with its great
landscape, archaeological and naturalistic richness, needs complete figures that can satisfy the
request of the most attentive tourist, from the adventurous hiker to the lover of archeology .
For this reason I am now also a Tour Guide and Tour Leader and I can answer questions
expectations of any type of Italian and foreign tourist in the field of Naturalistic and
Excursion Tourism, as well as in the more purely Cultural one.

Professional book, accompanies you along the way all year round on weekends.


I am a professional educator and an Environmental Hiking Guide registered in the AIGAE register starting from the year 2021. Being originally from San Vero Milis (OR), I have practiced the activity of Environmental Hiking Guide especially in the territories of Oristano trying to make known and to enhance the naturalistic beauties of my territory, avoiding to follow the too inflated and well-known paths of the island.
During my, albeit brief, experience, I had the opportunity to accompany people with physical disabilities (the visually impaired) into nature and, using my knowledge as a professional educator, I related to school structures and youth centers by organizing activities in nature with school groups and groups of teenagers.
I consider the work of an Environmental Hiking Guide as a passion and I try to assimilate more and more knowledge and motivations from each experience to increase my experiential fabric in this area. I think the opportunity to be able to accompany tourists or locals along the paths of the Santa Barbara Mining Path can increase my knowledge of the territories crossed and add fundamental experiences to my cultural baggage for the continuation of this profession.

Freelance, she accompanies along the stretches of Sulcis Iglesiente, Arburese and Guspinese from October to March and from June to September.

PRESENTATION: I consider myself a Punic-Roman who is turning into Nuragic passing from the Middle Ages to the post-war period. My guided tours are not always and only those visits in which only technical and non-technical notions are given, but the various experiences are always collaborated and shared to broaden and range in knowledge. Because in tourism the most important thing is sharing with different realities.
