itineraries

To whet your taste a little, here are some of our itineraries:
North West Sardinia offers cyclists the possibility to pedal peacefully on almost all of its roads. The lack of noise exalts the sounds of nature and amplifies the cyclist’s relationship with the scenery.

Come and discover our land! For cycling fans, we recommend the Asinara Island, where pleasant routes takes you through a sprawling range of wild plant life, charming scenery and fascinating ex-prison sites.

Another amazing route runs through the Nurra region, which spans from Asinara National Park to the Porto Conte Regional Park.
This area, characterized by wild clifftops that peak above the sea and the soft profiles of the inland elevations, offers cyclists a wide range of scenery. It spans from Capo Falcone, crossing the fascinating Argentiera (the mining village located directly on the sea that is part of Sardinia’s Geo-mining Park) to the Lago di Baratz and the vast inlet of the Porto Conte Regional Park. From here, we reach the peak of the monumental Capo Caccia (having descended the 656 steps of the charming "Escala del Cabiro") and arrive at Neptune’s Grotto. We find the Nuraghe of Palmavera on the road between Porto Conte and Fertilia. Pedalling on amidst several Nuragic sites, archaeological areas and natural territories, this fantastic route finally leads to Alghero, the so-called "Coral Riviera".


Asinara National Park

Asinara Island, which can be reached from the new port of Stintino and from Porto Torres, offers visitors the opportunity to experience a pleasant stay and numerous excursions: by sea, trekking, bike and mountain bike or jeep. The itineraries of the coastal stretches and the areas further inland are also interesting for their bird life. The white donkeys native to this island are worth a special mention. The route is fascinating and beautiful!

From Asinara National Park to the Porto Conte Regional Park

Off we go, with our departure from Capo Falcone! Direction: Capo Caccia on the trail of the Nurra hinterland and then back down again towards Alghero. From here we take the coast road and admire the splendid Coral Coast and the ancient Nuragic site of Palmavera. In cycling terms, this is a fairly difficult route, with no particularly strenuous sections but a series of uphill climbs requiring the use of low gears. The route is around 100 Km long.

The Hills towards the Argentiera

A route that crosses the inland hillside, or the road that crosses Pozzo San Nicola and Palmadula and leads to the old Argentiera (the mining village that looks out over the sea and is part of Sardinia’s Geo-mining Park), affording the cyclist breathtaking views of the sea, hills and old villages… and strong emotions! In cycling terms, this is a route of average difficulty, a good part of which is on the level and with uphill climbs at certain points for which gear adjustment is required. This is a charming, moving route!

The Rocks of the Nurra region

This route follows the western part of the promontory and takes the cyclist through the ancient properties of the shepherds who built dry stone walls in each important area, large vineyards and protected countryside until he reaches the Lago di Baraz. In cycling terms this is a fairly difficult route, with no particularly strenuous sections but a series of uphill climbs requiring the use of low gears. An exciting, captivating route!

Tours for climbers

A continuous series of ups and downs along the hillside on the back of Capo Caccia. The route is not very long, around one hundred kilometres, but it requires a good deal of effort and experience. As is usual for the routes in this part of the country, there’s a bit of everything: curves, climbs and downhill sections. There is not much level ground, and this might not suit long-distance cyclists and those who favour higher gears.

Monte Doglia

An extremely complex itinerary, which touches on the Nuragic site of Palmavera, crosses a thick pinewood and opens up to give the cyclist a view over the Porto Conte Gulf and Alghero on one side, and the vast plane of the Nurra region on the other. We recommend departing from Stintino by bicycle and reaching Alghero. A breathtaking, captivating route!
