Jump in the saddle for a circular ride in this beautiful area. Cross the fascinating Sinis wetlands and spot the flamingo colony, before reaching the coast at Mari Ermi. Continue down the peninsula to Tharros, an ancient Roman city and one of the island’s most important archaeological sites, before heading back to your hotel.
Day 3 San Salvatore Sinis to Piscinas
Today’s coastal ride follows the Costa Verde, named after the green, wild vegetation that covers much of the mountainous surroundings. Transfer by road to Arborea, before cycling across picturesque farmland to the ﬁshing village of Marceddi. Continue to Piscinas and admire the huge sand dunes, some of which reach up to 50 metres. From here, it’s a steady climb to tonight’s accommodation set in the hills overlooking the Monte Linas Range.

Day 5 Nebida to Sant’Antioco
Enjoy a leisurely descent to Fontanamare and follow an undulating coastal road to Portoscuso. Cycle to the harbour and board a local ferry to Carlofote, a ﬁshing village on Isola di San Pietro. There’s time to explore this beautiful little island before taking another ferry to Sant’Antioco, another gloriously unspoilt island.
Day 6 Sant’Antioco to Sant’Anna Arresi
Cycle through the lush meadows of Sant’Antioco, before taking the ferry back to the mainland. Visit the sanctuary at Tratalias, dating back to the Romanesque period.
