Cycling In Sardinia

Sardinia is a place of outstanding natural beauty, with its crystal-clear sea, limestone ridges and deep gorges. During the week we cycle across the wild and pristine southwestern region of Sardinia, passing abandoned mines, ancient ruins and gleaming white beaches. The route starts in the Sinis wetlands, home to colonies of flamingos, and moves on to the spectacular Costa Verde (Green Coast) named for its abundance of Mediterranean vegetation. After cycling past ancient mines, we reach the beautiful beach of Portixeddu where the impressive Pan di Zucchero white cliff towers out of the emerald waters. We then board a local ferry to the fishing village of Carloforte and explore the delightful isle of Sant'Antioco before crossing to the mainland, where we conclude a week of wonderful cycling pedalling along the stunning Costa del Sud, with its white beaches, coastal pools and imposing high cliffs.
