Day-by-Day Cycling Holiday Itinerary

Day 1: San Salvatore Sinis

Private transfer to Cabras or independent arrival, overnight.

Day 2: The Sinis Peninsula (68 km)

Start your trip with an optional loop of the fascinating Sinis wetlands where we will see colonies of pink famingos, quartz beaches and reach one of the most beautiful spots on the island: the Phoenician ruins of Tharros. Then cross the town of the medieval historic centre of Oristano to reach Arborea.

3rd day: Costa Verde and dunes of Piscinas (46/54 km)

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 – 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 Planusartu and Acquaresi. After the golden beach of Portixeddu and looming mass of Pan di Zucchero cliff, you admire the old ore washery at Nebida.

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(40 km)

Riding through vineyards and olive grows savour the quiet peace of the rolling plains of Sulcis. At Tratalias, visit the Pisan sanctuary, one of the most important monuments of the Sardinian Romanesque period.

Day 7: The South Coast (57 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.

Day 8: Departure day

After breakfast, end of services.
