"Sardinia is broad, usual, not at all irregular, but fades in the distance. It gives a feeling of space ... enchanting space around and distance to travel, nothing finished, nothing definite. It 'like freedom itself. "

The freedom you will experience riding in the saddle of your bike, in sliding and fascinating dirt of 'Ogliastra. Will depart from the station of Arzana and would we become immediately immersed in the woods, where at times you can see the beautiful scenery of the lake Flumendosa, which we will then be able to admire in its entirety when we get on the tops. Once in town Niala we can swim under a waterfall in the rocks, and after that, have lunch in a pleasant refuge. In the afternoon we return to the station of Arzana in green train, which at the right speed will make you admire the most of the landscape ..
