Sardinia Coast East

               from La Caletta in the Capo Carbonara

A trip by mountain bike that is worth addressing, unique, breathtaking scenery along the coast and inland. Starting from the coast near Siniscola, we will reach Villasimius, exactly in Capo Carbonara. I wait in Sardinia, the wild land made for you places.


                           Description of the journey:

 

The Tour Sardinia East Coast is a challenging trip average of 380 km with an elevation gain of 8430 m. The whole is divided into 5 days of pedaling.

With our bike, we start from the seaside resort of La Caletta. This is located in the Barony in a subregion of the historic North-Eastern Sardinia. His most important centers are Siniscola and Orosei. Right in the town of the latter, we cross the coastal forest Bidderosa, an oasis which extends for 860 hectares. E 'consists of a rich natural vegetation and a pine forest of Aleppo pine and domestic. In addition, all 'inside, are including the five bays of emerald sea and the white of fine sand, which will make you daydream. These wonders are only a small part of what you'll see in the first stage, which will end in Dorgali after climbing Mount Tuttavista, that will give us another postcard view.

The second stage starting from the farm in the municipality of Dorgali Didone, will project us towards another province of the island, Ogliastra. The so-called "island within an island", known for its beautiful beaches, but also to the mountains. One in particular is that of the Gennargentu, the highest of Sardinia, well 1,834 m of shale. This renowned Ogliastra, is also the Supramonte of Urzulei, with his throat Gorropu, the deepest in Europe. With our bike we will ride a short distance from it, reaching the town of Arzana thanks to different variations of your choice. Just to Arzana Hotel Murru, we expect a typical dinner and a deserved sleep.

The next day, after a 'hearty breakfast, we will prepare to face the third stage, some 60 km before reaching the town of Ulassai, where' Hotel Su Marmuri will end leaving us satisfied with our 2200m in altitude .. In this stage , cross the majestic monolith Lose Leana, who, thanks to some amusing single track of varying degrees of difficulty, we can admire on both sides. Another gem of this stage, will be the largest forest of oaks Monte Arbu where reigning again free Sardinian deer, the mouflon and fallow deer and Golden Eagles. Also a few km from Ulassai, but in the town of Osini, we stop for some shots in the ancient testimony of nuraghe nuragic Serbissi, built in the Middle Bronze era - Recent Bronze Age (1500-1100 BC). An integral part of the nuragic, but on the underside, the cove Serbissi, is a karst cave formed by erosion and dissolution of dolomite rocks Mesozoic Jurassic (150 million to 130 million years ago). It stretches for 206 m. at an altitude of 952 m. s.l.m. One can assume that this and other parts of the cave were warehouses for storage of food, resulting from pastoral activities, hunting and farming. The fourth stage will take us to ride in the Sarrabus sub-region to another beautiful island where we will spend the night in the great country of Muravera, in the quaint inn Su Pasiu.

The last stage however, end in Campidano, in 'extreme south-east of Cape Carbonara in the municipality of Villasimius. Cape Carbonara is a promontory 3.5 km long and 1.8 km wide, where there are several beaches, better if you visit during periods with few tourists. The promontory, along the island of Cavoli and the island Serpentara, part of the Marine Protected.

It will be a 5-day trip only: this just described is a fraction of what you'll be visiting! There will be many emotions, and for this there are no words. That little 'hard work is always rewarded!
