North Sardinia is often identified with Costa Smeralda. This is wrong. In fact, the touristic development of Costa Smeralda – the billionaire's paradise – added a totally new and non-typical layer of hotels, services and businesses to northeast of Sardinia. While the Gallura area – the region that surrounds Costa Smeralda – is still very authentic and has preserved its old economy and traditions. For this reason, we believe is intriguing to discover both faces of north Sardinia – the contemporary and touristy one as well as the ancient and traditional one.
The trip’s philosophy is, in fact, to provide an insight of the lovely Costa Smeralda, exploring the amazing La Maddalena Island - a National Park, while giving our guests the opportunity to visit an inner part of the island rich in traditions, quiet roads and of course great cycling in the wild interior hills of northern Sardinia.
Stages are between 60 and 80km and daily elevations are not typically intended for hard core cyclists: the riding time we'll leave you time for exploring the lovely destinations. We will guide you across this Sardinian region on a trip that will you put in touch with special and significant places and on lovely roads. That’s SardiniaCycling modus operandi.
And, in those special places we want you to experience the very special local food, wine and hospitality.
