Welcome to Sardinia! At your arrival, if you wish, we'll take you from the airport to your hotel in Alghero with a private shuttle service. Then, at our headquarter Biking Sardinia, we'll hand you your E-Bike, after adapting it to your needs.
You'll cycle along the coast of Alghero, cross its countryside, rich in vines, up to Stintino, where you'll arrive at around 5pm. Just in time for a pizza or an excellent plate of fresh fish in any of the restaurants in the town.
On this exciting third day we will cycle to discover the Asinara Island National Park. At the end of your exploration, you will resume the ferry to disembark in Porto Torres, where you will find a private transfer service waiting for you that will take you, comfortably, to Castelsardo!
Castelsardo is a charming jewel set in the rocks of Northern Sardinia. delight yourselves with its pretty alleys, craft shops, restaurants and the view from the ancient city. On a day like this in Castelsardo s certainly recommended a visit to the Castle and the Museum of the Mediterranean weaving inside it. The weaving of the basket is a typical process of this place, and it's not uncommon to meet at the door of the house some lady who weaves and sells her works to tourists and travelers. During your visit to the Castle you will discover the secrets of this process and the history of Castelsardo, very linked to the Spanish domination. Arrived on the upper terrace, stop for a second, breathe the crisp air that comes from the sea and enjoy the breathtaking view. Take some selfies! it will be a beautiful memory to take away with you.
The fifth day has arrived and we are still cycling! We will continue along the curvilinear streets of Gallura and through the mountains that surround the little and pretty Granite Village of Aggius. We will follow the splendid coastal path of the ancient Roman port of Baia Ostina, from the hills to the marvelous “Valle della Luna”, up to Aggius.
After a rich breakfast we will have the right energy to resume pedaling among the natural beauties of the Gallura valleys. From Aggius you will reach Palau and then travel with your E-Bikes the stretch of coast north of the island up to Cannigione. Ready for the Panorama? The effort will be worth it!
Bikers! The last day of crazy cycling around the North Sardinia has arrived. Today we will follow the coastal road from Cannigione to the charming Palau. Welcome to the most famous and touristic paart of Sardinia: La Costa Smeralda! It will be a ride of about an hour that will allow us to reach the port of Palau and from there set sail to discover the iconic Maddalena archipelago.
We'll take you from your hotel to the airport on time for the departure. So, we need to say goodbye... but since we don't like the goodbyes we just say you "Arrivederci!": see you the next time for a new tour around Sardinia!

Sardinia enjoys plenty of hot sunshine and blue skies throughout the year, especially during the summer months with temperatures sometimes going up to as high as 40 degrees centigrade. There is very low rainfall per , and the sun usually arrives in April and extends into October. Spring and autumn are an ideal time for exploring the richness of Sardinia’s wilderness when the temperatures tend to hover around the low to mid 20 degrees centigrade. At the beginning and end of the season(in March and late October) the weather can be a little less predictable and there could be some cooler days. Please check with our team as to how the trip might be affected at this time, as this can differ from year to year.
As part of your Experience, we create guide and itinerary content that will be made available offline to our guests for the duration of their tour.
Sardinia is a cyclists paradise, with excellent quality tarmac, wide roads, few cars and low urbanisation. You will be enchanted by the gradual undulating roads along the coast, passing watch towers, high cliffs and descending to long sandy beaches. As you leave the coast to ride towards the interior, the terrain becomes more mountainous, with longer gradual climbs, alternating with smooth flowing descents. Very short sections leading to the accommodation could be on gravel roads.
