Sardinia by bicycle

Bellissima for biking

An island full of hills, dramatic coastlines with turquoise beaches, and the roads mostly to yourself: it really doesn't get much better than this for road cycling. The central mountain region divides the eastern and western plains so you're in for a treat of ever-changing natural scenery. In the interior, you'll encounter plenty of sheep, moderate climbs and exhilarating descents. 

Come in spring or autumn for ideal conditions and discover the exceptional cuisine, history and culture of this dazzling  Italian island where they speak their own language: Sardinian.

Alghero & Castelsardo

Sardinia is different; it should be no surprise then that the people of Alghero on the northwest coast speak a Catalan dialect. The city changed hands many times in its rich and varied history, and Catalan settlers populated it in 1353. Well known for Neptune's Grotto, a stunning stalactite cave at the foot of the 110-metre-high Capo Caccia cliffs, Alghero is now a popular tourist and diving destination.

The coastal town of Castelsardo boasts medieval streets, a Doria Castle from 1102 and the Elephant Rock, a symbol of Sardinia. An interior route connecting the two towns is 92 km (57 miles) long and leads past Sassari, the second largest city on the island.

Bosa & Montiferru

With its pastel houses clinging to a steep hillside, Bosa is easily one of the most picturesque towns on the island. Lying at the delta of the Temo river on the northwest coast of Sardinia, the town is busy year-round and holds a distinct Mediterranean charm. Visit the 900-year-old fortress of the Malaspinas on the hilltop or see the grapes and olives thrive in the nearby valleys.

Ride some exceptional cycle trails in the basalt massif Monteferru, and don't miss the opportunity to take your road bike on the scenic route to Alghero along Strada Litoranea: there are 45 kilometers (28 miles) of rocky coastline, hidden bays and cliff views waiting for you.

Orosei

You can't go wrong with mountains on one side and the sea on the other! The town Orosei on the east coast of Sardinia is surrounded by varied landscape, ideal for bike tours along the many roads. It is the ideal gateway to many tours into the rugged interior.

Don't miss Oasi di Biderosa, a nature reserve where you can visit secluded beaches, mountains and forests. To preserve its pristine state, only a limited number of visitors are admitted every day. Cycle up to Monte Orcati for incredible panoramic views. And if you wish to relax after a tour, go to nearby Spiaggia de Su Barone, a white sand beach surrounded by a forest of shady pine trees.
