Unusual Emerald Coast on two wheels:
Let the Emerald Coast surprise you when the jet set is far away. Explore it intimately, pedaling on roads invaded by the fragrance of myrtle. Admire Gallura’s wind-sculpted granite and cork forests, then rest at white beaches and lonely coves. Let this bike tour show you the medieval Sardinia of Castelsardo and the Spanish Sardinia of Alghero.
Day 1: tour start
Private transfer or individual arrival in Cannigione, overnight stay.
Day 2: Emerald Coast, loop tour (54 km)
Discover the beauty of the Emerald Coast when the millionaires are far away! We ride to Arzachena, and then up to the hills of San Pantaleo. We descend to Porto Cervo and following Baia Sardinia, before returning to Cannigione.
Day 3: La Maddalena archipelago, loop tour (60km).
Today we cycle north to Palau, from where we board the ferry to the bustling town of La Maddalena on the island of the same name. From here we cross a bridge to the island of Caprera, where Garibaldi’s house museum is located. Once back on La Maddalena, a loop tour will allow us to discover the beautiful beaches of this small island. We finish the day by taking the ferry back to Palau, and from there back to Cannigione.
Day 4: Cannigione – Tempio Pausania/Nuchis. Discovering Gallura (51 km)
Today we explore the beauty of the interior of Sardinia, perhaps less praised, but incredibilmlente evocative. Our vacation takes us by bike through Gallura, characterized by extensive cork forests and granite rocks, sculpted into the most varied forms by time.
Day 5: Tempio Pausania/Nuchis – Castelsardo (49 km)
From Tempio we head back to the sea, not before seeing the Valley of the Moon. The cycling leg ends in Castelsardo, a medieval stronghold built by the Doria family in 1102, overlooking the sea. We will have a chance to visit its ancient village, kept intact throughout history.
Day 6: Castelsardo – Sassari (33/55 km)
We visit another inland area, passing through the towns of Nulvi and Osilo to enjoy the spectacular views of the entire Anglona region. Tonight we sleep in Sassari, the second largest city in Sardinia.
Day 7: Sassari- Alghero (44 km)
The final leg of our cycling vacation takes us all the way to Alghero. After leaving Sassari, we reach the coast pedaling along back roads. Alghero is the seal to the trip, a beautiful fortified city, famous for its ramparts over the sea. The streets of the historic center entirely closed to traffic retain a special charm that will not fail to win us over. The people of Alghero continue to speak a dialect that descends directly from Catalan, making the city a linguistic enclave.
Day 8: End of tour
After breakfast, end of our services.
