We're often asked by our guests to go cycle on all (or most) top roads of the island. We usually answer that an island with a perimeter of 1850km represents a challenge for those who want to explore it all in a week.
After many years, though, we realized that it was time to takle the challenge of putting together a route that includes even not all, at least most of our - and our guests' - favorite roads and areas of Sardinia in a single week of cycling. We've called it 'Ultimate Sardinia'.
North to south, and both west and east. Ultimate Sardinia is a challenging tour with long stages and relevant daily elevation and takes you from the northwest of the island (Alghero), to the very south (Pula) in seven unforgettable stages.
What should an ultimate tour of Sardinia include? Historical towns, like Alghero and Bosa; amazing coastline roads, such as the famous stretches by the sea either along the northwest and southwest coasts; traditional Sardinia of the villages inland; the mountains of the Barbagia region, so rich in traditions and Sardinian pride; the amazing central-east with its Gennargentu Park; the wild southwest with its old mines and the gorgeous beaches.
As usual, at Sardinia Cycling, route, accommodation, food and wine are selected carefully as a part of a tale we tell, so that we can say this is not just a travel through a land, but also through its ever different traditions, culture, local food, wine and even language.
It might seem that Ultimate Sardinia is the way to make you come ride on our island once in your lifetime and see all. But as soon as you'll ride it, we're sure you will become one of our numerous repeaters who can't stay away too long from Sardinian amazing roads and warm local hospitality.
So maybe we'll have to change name to this tour! How does Penultimate Sardinia sound?
Yes, you can do it either guided or self guided with luggage transfer.
