Holiday Information

This fantastic mountain bike holiday in Italy goes from north to south Sardinia. This is the ultimate place to place Sardinian mountain bike trip and is a dramatic ride through true wilderness. High rugged mountains, open plateaux, dense woods, waterfalls and streams all provide the scenery for what is a challenging yet rewarding biking journey. This is a tour for the fit and experienced mountain biker, with testing riding and long days across a variety of terrains.
During the trip we’ll take you through a variety of landscapes and along routes varying from well-beaten tracks to unused mule trails, tackling some superb routes which will test your biking skills and stimulate your passion for wilderness biking.
The journey begins in the northeast region of Sardinia, from the impressive slopes of Mt. Limbara, riding along ancient mule tracks through dense woods. As the days progress, we reach the wildest area of Sardinia, the Supramonte di Dorgali and its breathtaking soaring limestone peaks. The journey continues via the forested areas of Mt. Arbu, crossing streams, riding alongside lakes, winding up and down passes and meeting lone shepherds and their animals, where a brief stop for a chat normally ends up in a typical snack of bread, wine and cheese. 
Towards the southern end of the island, the landscape changes yet again and offers something different every day; vineyards, historic sites and daily challenges to look forward to. On the last biking day, one of the best mountain bike rides in Sardinia awaits us, ‘La Via dell’Argento’, an ancient silver mining track that leads us to our final destination on the south coast. Beer anyone?
If you have a day or two to spare why not extend your trip with some trekking or sea kayaking. Our local team can join you for a day’s guiding or we can provide the information and equipment to allow you to enjoy the routes self-guided, just give us a call for further info.
