Tour Sardinia East Coast

from La Caletta to Capo Carbonara

A mountain bike trip that is worth facing, unique, breathtaking scenery along the coast and within the island. Starting from the coast near Siniscola, we will arrive up to Villasimius, to be exact in Capo Carbonara. I wait for you in Sardinia, the wild land made to places for you.


Description of the trip:

 

 The Tour Sardinia East Coast is a challenging average journey of 370 km with a positive difference in altitude of 6000 m. Everything is divided into 5 days of pedaling.

 

With our bikes, we will leave from the seaside resort of La Caletta. This is located in Baronia, in a historical subregion of north-eastern Sardinia. Its most important centers are Siniscola and Orosei. Right in the municipality of the latter, we will cross the coastal forest of Bidderosa, an oasis that stretches for 860 hectares. It consists of a rich natural vegetation and an Aleppo pine and domestic pine forest. In addition, inside, are included the five emerald-colored creeks of the sea and the pure white of fine sand, which will make you daydream. These wonders are only a small part of what you will see in the first stage, which will end in Dorgali after climbing Monte Tuttavista, which will give us another postcard view.

 

The second stage with departure from the Didone farm in the municipality of Dorgali, will project us to another province of the island, Ogliastra. The so-called "island in the island", known for its wonderful beaches, but also for the mountains. One in particular is that of Gennargentu, the highest in Sardinia, a good 1834 m of schistose rock. Very well known in Ogliastra, it is also the Supramonte of Urzulei, with its gorge of Su Gorroppu, the deepest in Europe. With our bike we will pedal a short distance from it, we will reach the Goloritzè refuge in the territory of Baunei, thanks to different variations, we can decide whether to visit Cala Sisine, and go back to the refuge from the codula (parallel street to the river bed), or from the state road 125. The shelter is located in the Golgo plain, where a typical dinner awaits us, and a well-deserved sleep.

 

The next day, after a hearty breakfast, we will prepare to face the 3 stage, of 60 km before arriving in the territory of Sarrala, after having crossed the coast of Monte Cartuceddu, between the municipality of Gairo and Tertenia. The fourth stage will take us to ride in Sarrabus, another beautiful subregion of the island where we spend the night in a beautiful farm in the hamlet of San Priamo, in the municipality of Muravera.

 

The last stage, however, will end in the Campidano of Cagliari, in the extreme south-east of Capo Carbonara in the municipality of Villasimius. Capo Carbonara is a promontory 3.5 km long and 1.8 km wide, where there are several beaches, better if you visit in the periods with few tourists. The promontory, together with the island of Cavoli and the Serpentara island, are part of the protected natural marine area.

 

It will be a unique 5 day trip: this just described is a minimal part of what you will visit! So many emotions will be, and for these there are no words. That bit of effort will always be rewarded!
