Make your own way to your first stop
After spending some time exploring the centre of Montevecchio, it’s time to get on your bike and cycle on a small road by the river Irvi. Before getting to the sea, you will cross the river an impressive 18 times! After all your cycling take a relaxing stop by the Costa Verde and enjoy the view of the Monte Acuentu.
Ride down a gorgeous route to the stop of the Piscinas, which boats great sand dunes of up to 50m high. Go along old mining tracks until you get to Scivu with its golden beaches (we would recommend taking a break here!). Tonight’s stay will be in an “agriturismo”, an Italian concept which combines farms with tourism. Try some gorgeous regional homemade cuisine.
The first stop on your route today will be Fluminimaggiore, famous for its ruins and murals depicting a history of social unrest. From here you will be venturing away from human history and swapping for nature as you head through one of the most rural areas of Sardinia. Your stop for the night will be Nebida, where you will once again be by the coast. Whether you’re a sunset lover or not, you will love the view of it from the Pan di Zucchero cliff.
Today will entail a welcome flatter route after three hillier days. You will take a ferry from Portoscuso to Carloforte, a town where there are red-tuna fishermen. From here you will head on to the island of Sant’Antioco and your day comes to an end in Calasetta.
Today’s cycle will be another breeze as you head through gorgeous meadows, which have different colours depending on when you visit (green in spring and yellow in the summer). Take a stop in Tratalias, where you can visit the cathedral and ride down the terracotta streets. Carry on along the lake Monte Pranu and bask in the tranquillity of the rolling plains of Sulcis.
The last leg of the tour will take you through the Costa del Sud (South Coast) which is home to stunningly white beaches, untouched wild landscapes, and impressive cliffs. Enjoy a visit to Cape Malfatano which has a 16th century tower as well as Cape Spartivento. In Nora visit the ancient Phoenician settlement. If you are looking for a little more of a challenge, you can climb the Sulcis mountains and ride head through the Cannoneris forest on a route that will take you right to Pula.
