Italy - Sardinia - North Sardinian Ride

Italy - Sardinia - North Sardinian Ride

Degree of difficulty - B/C

Fancy seeing how the VIPs live, without the celebrity price tag? Well this is the trip for you! Discover the Coasta Smeralda (The Emerald Coast), the most prestigious main centre in the mediterranean. The coast is stunning with a complete mixture of landscapes...white sand beaches, granite mountains and rocky coves. Therein lies the reason why it has become a paradise to welcome the international Jet Set!

Moving west along the northern part of Sardinia we move inland and see the hills and lakes of Sant'Antonio di Gallura, through the dramatic stone formation of Valley of the Moon, enjoy spectacular views of the Anglona rolling hills and pastures and finish the tour in Alghero, probably the nicest town in Sardinia.

This trip offers the cyclists the chance to see two very different aspects of life in Sardinia, and a lot of its spectacular scenery!
