Holiday Information

A gentle cycling holiday in Sardinia, perfect for exploring beautiful coastlines, discovering ancient tranditions and indulging in tasty Mediterranean scented cuisine.
 
This cycling trip is based on the central western side of Sardinia. Starting in Tresnuraghes, this is an ideal location to explore both the coast and estuary around Bosa, as well as the small villages of this corner of Sardinia. An area famous for its production of Malvasia wine and olive oil, there will truly be a Mediterranean feel to the route, as you cycle past vineyards, olive groves and open fields with sheep grazing.
 
Moving south and following the coastline, you'll drop into the plains and marshlands of the Oristano region. Expanses of sandy beaches, turquoise sea, remains of ancient coloniaations, rich birdlife, and a culture which developped around fishing ...cycling the Sinis peninsula is the best way to explore this region.
 
Your cycling trip in Sardinia couldn't end without a visit to the most important archeological site on the island, and the best testimony of the Nuragic civilisation. After a short transfer, you'll ride through the rolling hills of Marmilla, past open fields cultivated with wheat and vineyards. Barumini is your destination, home to the UNESCO Heritage site of Su Nuraxi. Your trip ends in Cagliari, time to explore this ancient, yet vibrant capital of Sardinia. 
 
We also have a guided version of this tour available, if you prefer to ride as part of a group, with a local guide leading the way.
