Expedition East Coast

Beautiful tour through the wilderness East of the island linking some of the prettiest beaches and crossing the main mountain ranges: Gennargentu, Supramonte, Goceano and Limbara. We’ll ride the whole island from the North East to the very South. You’ll discover so many different landscapes, traditions, foods and languages, these are just some of the reasons why Sardinia is considered its own a continent.

from Lanusei to Orroli

Today is the King of the mountain! We cross the heart of Ogliastra surrounded by the beauty of this wild nature, here the action of erosion of the river and its tributaries have carved deep valleys creating bizarre rock formations, known as "Tacchi", plateaus rising on high walls of white limestone, which make unique landscapes in this beautiful corner of Sardinia. The canyon that closes the lake Flumendosa anticipates the arrival to the plateau of Orroli, a town symbol of longevity in Sardinia.

The lagoons inhabited by pink flamingos and rare birds, lines the countryside and some of the most generous citrus groves of Sardinia, give way to the charm of the coast and the fabulous beaches of the Marine Park of Capo Carbonara in Villasimius: a real paradise of white sandy beaches and emerald water!
