Hotel LibertyDistance 100km
from Arzachena to PattadaWe leave the glamour of the Costa Smeralda to get to Goceano Mountains. The vineyards of Arzachena give way to forests of cork along the ascent to the granite massif of Limbara, which we leave on an exciting descent on the Coghinas lake, here we prepare to challenge the Goceano range, where the village of Pattada awaits us.
Hotel il QuercetoDistance 85km
from Pattada to DorgaliWe get from Goceano to the Supramonte, passing through Barbagia of Nuoro. The typical cork oak forests of Buddusò together with the mountain pastures of Bitti makes a unique landscape. The Cedrino valley, at the foot of majestic Supramonte, tells us about old stories and ancestral traditions.
Hotel Marie ClaireDistance 95km
from Dorgali to LanuseiDorgali is located right at the beginning of the climb to Genna Silana, along an awesome route: the legendary SS125! It is one of the most beautiful roads of Sardinia, 40 exciting kilometers through pure nature, reaching 1000mt a.s.l. at Passo Genna Silana, from where we take a long and beautiful descent to Tortolì. From here we continue to climb to the heart of Ogliastra.
Hotel Omu AxiuDistance 90km
from Lanusei to OrroliToday 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.
Hotel XeniaDistance 90km
from Orroli to VillasimiusAfter a short stretch on the plateau, dominated by the wonderful megalithic complex of Nuraghe Arrubiu, we go down along a descent into the valley of the Flumendosa 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, 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!
Hotel ItaliaDistance 55km
from Villasimius to CagliariThe route from Villasimius to Cagliari is a fun itinerary of continuous up and down in an impressive succession of cliffs and beaches, granite hills and ancient Spanish towers. It will be really difficult to resist the temptation to take a dip in one of the many beaches and crystal water: Porto Sa Ruxi, Solanas, Torre delle Stelle, Geremeas, Mari Pintau, Cala Regina and finally the Poetto, where we take a nice cycling path along the beach until Cagliari port. Available an optional extra loop going up to 800 meters a.s.l. along a beautiful climb overlooking Cagliari bay. The total ride, including the extra loop, is about 90km with 1500mt of climb.
Good bye!It’s time to say goodbye, we really hope to see you again!
