We have frequently been asked by our guests if we could combine all (or most) of the top roads on the island into one tour. For many years we answered that due to the size of the island (the perimeter is 1850km) this was very difficult, especially given the time constranits most our guests have. Finally, we have tackled this challenge and put together a route that squeezes most of our, and our guests' favorite roads into a single week of cycling. We've called it 'Ultimate Sardinia'.
North to south, west to east. Ultimate Sardinia is a challenging tour made up of long stages with notable daily elevation gains 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 along the northwest and southwest coasts; the traditional Sardinian inland villages; the mountains of the Barbagia region, rich in tradition and Sardinian pride; the amazing central-east with its Gennargentu Park; the wild southwest with its old mines and the gorgeous beaches. We have managed to connect all these highlights with roads that you will not soon forget.
As usual, at Sardinia Cycling, route, accommodation, food and wine are selected carefully as a part of the tale we tell, so that we can say this is not just a travel through the land, but also through its varied traditions, culture, food, wine and even language.
The Ultimate Sardinia is the tour for dedicated cyclists that want a once in a lifetime experience of the island. Fair warning, however, after you are finished we are sure you will become one of our numerous repeat guests that can't stay away from Sardinia and its 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.
