Can't you hear it? It is the sound of the wheels rolling on the asphalt. No traffic: it is only you and your bike, in the silence of nature, who travel along kilometers of secondary roads with breathtaking views. Are you ready for a 6-day tour to discover Sardinia on your E-bike?

 Sardinia Coast to Coast, from ALGHERO to OLBIA by E-Bike  - code NWE06D

An original and exclusively itinerary build by Biking Sardinia offering the best experience riding the North Coast by E-Bike.

 And if while traveling around Italy you have noticed that each region is different and particular, when you arrive in Sardinia you will almost feel like you have arrived in another state. Considered one of the most exotic islands of the Bel Paese, due to the insularity that characterizes it, it has always preserved a unique identity and traditions of its kind. And even if you find the sea spectacular, we are sure that its soul will really excite you!

Itinerary

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.

Bike Fitting and briefing at Biking Sardinia agency A bike fit is the first step to do before you start your ride around Sardinia. We will set up the bikes for you from the foot/pedal interface to seat and handlebar positioning, having your bike fit properly will allow you to have the best experience possible. Riding a bike should be fun and comfortable! After the set-up of the bikes we have a briefing with the description of your tour. On a first day you arrive, we deliver your bikes and after a bike fitting and a briefing about the trip, soon you can have the first ride. Due to its strategic position in the Mediterranean Sea, Alghero was built around a fortified port and its small winding streets make a great place to explore. The wonderful area of the Porto Conte Park with Capo Caccia cliff are really awesome.

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 of ride, 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 your hotel.

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. After this fantastic day you will return at your hotel in Cannigione.

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!

Please leave your baggage at the reception desk of your hotel before 10.00 o'clock AM on the day of the lugguage transfer. Don't forget to label with Biking Sardinia tags. Please note, if you are flying, baggage allowances vary from airline to airline and all excess baggage charges must be met by you. Some airlines may only include cabin baggage as standard, and you will need to request hold baggage separately.

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.
