From Alghero to Tresnuraghes

In the morning we ride along the rugged coastline that connects Alghero to Bosa, an unforgettable 40km road of constant ups and downs, through cliffs, coves and lovely views. From Bosa we take the hills of Planargia that, through neat Malvasia vineyards, lead us to our hotel in Tresnuraghes, overlooking the valley of olive trees sloping down to the sea.

Grand Hotel Terme

Distance 70km
Climb 1100mt

From Tresnuraghes to Aritzo

Just after Tresnuraghes we enter the Montiferru region, named after the volcanic massif we are going to cross, here we challenge the longest climb of the day, known as La Madonnina, taking us to almost a thousand meters above sea level immersed in a thick oak forest, before reaching Santu Lussurgiu. Then we descend gradually to the Tirso valley, that we cross twice before to reach the ancient Roman thermal settlement of Fordongianus (ancient Forum Traiani) on the Tirso river banks. The hotel offers natural thermal baths, a perfect spot to relax and finish a perfect day.

From Fordonginaus to Aritzo

Today’s itinerary is mostly climbing, getting up to Gennargentu range, which includes the Sardinia peak Punta La Marmora, also known as Perdas Carpìas. The route starts along Tirso river banks and brings us to the chestnut woods of Aritzo, in the middle of the Barbagia di Belvì, passing through the town of Samugheo, which is known for its handmade carpets of excellent workmanship and for the full bodied Mandrolisai wine.

DAY 5

Distance 65km
Climb 1250mt

From Aritzo to Orroli

We leave behind the rocky profile of Texile and we set off downhill towards Gadoni and the Flumendosa valley, which we follow until the gates of Ogliastra. Here you will be surprised by the wild beauty of nature, where the action of erosion of the river and its tributaries have carved valleys, creating bizarre shaped rocks, such as the characteristic "Heels", limestone plateaus with high white cliffs, creating unique landscapes in this beautiful corner of Sardinia. The canyon that closes the lake Flumendosa brings us to the arrival on the plateau of Orroli, village symbol of longevity in Sardinia.

DAY 6

After a short stretch on the plateau, dominated by the wonderful megalithic complex of Nuraghe Arrubiu, we pedal down into the valley of the Flumendosa river, ending by the sea in Muravera. The lagoons inhabited by pink flamingos and rare birds, lines the countryside and some of the most generous citrus groves of Sardinia, before reaching the beautiful beaches of Costa Rei.

The long sandy beach of Sant’Elmo give way to the charm of the coast and to the dream beaches of the Marine Protected Area of Capo Carbonara. From Villasimius we continue along a fun route, in a suggestive succession of cliffs and white sandy beaches, granite hills and ancient spanish towers. Today will be very difficult to resist the temptation to dive in one of the many beaches with crystal clear water: Feraxi, Piscina Rei, Cala Sinzias, Cala Pira, Punta Molentis, Simius, Notteri, Porto Sa Ruxi, Solanas, Torre delle Stelle, Geremeas, Mari Pintau, Cala Regina...then, a nice bike path running along the 7 km Poetto beach, will lead us to the center of Cagliari.
