Day 2
Olbia to Pattada (Km 78, climb 1700mt)
Right from the first day we get to know the real heart of Sardinia as we cross the Monti di Alà, a wild and remote highland with an extensive cork tree forest. After the Lerno Lake we’ll reach our charming hotel in the countryside village of Pattada (78 km).
Day 3
Pattada to Cala Gonone (Km 68, climb 1700mt)
Soon after Bitti we tackle some hills and the Supramonte, the island's biggest limestone massif swings into view. We spend the night in Cala Gonone, a seaside village with a dramatic coastline where the mountain plunges into the sea (93 km).
Day 4
Cala Gonone to Fonni (Km 113, climb 1500mt)
This is the day for the king of the mountains. Surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, we cross the town of Oliena, one of the most characteristic settlements of this area with its wrought iron balconies and massive wooden portals. From here, we climb along the slopes of the Supramonte as far as Orgosolo where we make a short stop to admire the famous wall paintings - witnesses of past years of social unrest - the work of numerous artists. We cross the upland plain of Mamoiada and reach Fonni, 1000 m asl, where we find our hotel, a restored ancient splendid palazzo (68 km).
Day 5
Fonni to Villanovaforru - (Km 113, climb 1500mt)
Another hilly day in the very heart of the island. We plunge into the chestnut woods round Ovodda and ride through the charming valley of Sorgono, rich in vegetation. After the village of Laconi the terrain easies out as we descend towards the Campidano flatland. We ride on the rolling hills of Marmilla, along hidden country lanes. We stop for the night in the country village of Villanovaforru (113 km).
Day 6
Villanovaforru to Arbus - (Km 106, climb 1500mt)
Back to the ocean! Today we will cycle through the natural beauty spots of the Costa Verde, some of the most savage scenery on the island. Our stop tonight is an agriturismo renown for its mouth-watering traditional dishes (106 km).
Day 7
Arbus-Calasetta (Km 103, climb 1000mt)
This day takes you back into the ancient mining past of Sardinia, as we pass the fascinating abandoned mines of Buggerru and Planusartu. After the golden beach of Portixeddu and looming mass of Pan di Zucchero cliff, you admire the old ore washery at Nebida: nestling in the varied colours of the Mediterranean bush, it looks out over the sea at the end of a long descent down 540 steps. We then board on the ferry to Carloforte, where locals still fish the Red Tuna fish. From Carloforte, we continue to the island of Sant'Antioco and end your day near Calasetta, where we stay in a very elegant countryside hotel.
Day 8
Calasetta-Pula (Km 95, climb 700mt)
Final catwalk of your tour is the beautiful Costa del Sud with its gleaming white beaches, unspoilt natural landscape and imposing cliffs: Cape Malfatano with its 16th Century tower, Cape Spartivento and Chia. At Nora we visit the ancient Phoenician settlement.
