Cycling Tour in Sardinia

From famed Alghero on the northwestern coast, we explore this gorgeous isle by bicycle riding south along the coast before cutting inland to Tresnuraghes and Bosa, and then further inland to Santu Lussurgiu area and Oliena, ending on the eastern shores at Cala Gonone. Off the bike, we restore ourselves with splashes of the indigenous wines and recipes that comprise the distinctive Sardinian cuisine. We’ll meet with local Sardi including shepherds, fishermen, and cheesemakers who have been living and working here in accordance with the traditions of their ancestors for centuries.

 

Come with us to discover wild Sardinia. Buon appetito and buon viaggio!
