Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Welcome meeting with local representative: explanation of the route and bike delivery. Dinner and overnight.

Day 2: The Sinis Peninsula (52 km). Travel through the fascinating Sinis wetlands where you will see colonies of pink flamingos and finally reach one of the most beautiful spots on the island: the white quartz beach of Is Arutas and the Phoenician ruins of Tharros.

Day 3: Costa Verde and dunes of Piscinas (46 km). After a transfer to Arborea, you will cycle through the natural beauty spots of the Costa Verde, some of the most savage scenery on the island, to the Piscinas beach with its sands dunes over 50 m high – some of the highest in Europe.

Day 4: The mines of Sulcis (41 km). This leg takes you back into the ancient mining past of Sardinia, as we pass the fascinating abandoned mines of Ingortosu and Planusartu. After the golden beach of Portixeddu and looming mass of Pan di Zucchero cliff, you admire the old ore washery at Nebida: nestling in the varied colours of the Mediterranean bush, it looks out over the sea at the end of a long descent down 540 steps.

Day 5: The island of Carloforte (43 km). After a beautiful descent to Fontanamare, you will reach Portoscuso, and board on the ferry to Carloforte, where locals still fish the Red Tuna fish. From Carloforte, continue to the island of Sant'Antioco and end your day in Calasetta.

Day 6: Town and island of Sant’Antioco (43 km). Today, you pedal through the meadows, green in springtime and golden yellow in the summer, of Sant'Antioco. At Tratalias, visit the Pisan sanctuary, one of the most important monuments of the Sardinian Romanesque period. Riding along the lake Monte Pranu, savour the quiet peace of the rolling plains of Sulcis.

Day 7: The South Coast (60 km). Final catwalk of your tour is the beautiful Costa del Sud with its gleaming white beaches, unspoilt natural landscape and imposing cliffs: Cape Malfatano with its 16th Century tower and Cape Spartivento. At Nora you will visit the ancient Phoenician settlement.
