The expert guides of the Carolina Ranch will accompany you aboard their quads along amazing paths to discover the most hidden and inaccessible corners of the island of Sant’Antioco, and to admire breathtaking views.

The excursions are suitable for everyone and are also designed for those who have never driven one of these incredible vehicles.
The Quad allows you to take off-road routes that are particularly difficult and bumpy, and sometimes inaccessible and dangerous: quads should therefore only be driven with an expert guide leading the way.
