Bike Tour Wild Blue and Green Ogliastra, cycling the low traffic roads from the mountain to the coast in a breathtaking landscape.

Ogliastra, is the perfect destination for those who are seeking outdoor activities or relax in the quiet mountains and of course swim in few of the best beaches that Mediterranean sea can offer.

This is also the land of centenaries and you’ll found out the secret of their longevity. A multi-sensory journey through the scents of mastic, broom, helichrysum and rosemary. A trip where you can live some experiences such as tasting the Cannonau or Sardinian cheese directly from the shepherd or participate in the production of the typical local pasta: the culurgiones.

This self-guided bike tour is suitable for everyone, thanks to the electric bike which allows you to ride even the most demanding hills in peace (tour available also with a normal bike). With the help of pedalling, you can easily overcome the steepest slopes and do from 40 to 60 km per day, maintaining the pleasure of cycling. A small push to immerse yourself in the authentic Sardinia.

 

Highlights

  • Breathtaking landscapes between sea and mountains
  • Tour suitable for everyone
  • Low traffic roads and beautiful views
  • Accommodation in Charming B&B, hotels and Agriturismo (farm house)
  • A free day in Santa Maria Navarrese to discover local beaches, have a rest and join an authentic cooking lab and wine tasting (optional)
Arrival at Cagliari airport, the capital of Sardinia. Organized transfer (duration about 1h20) or independent arrival to Osini. You will be welcomed on site by our team who will explain your trip itinerary and make sure your bike/e-bike is well adjusted.

For this 1st try, we recommend that you take the scenic road that leads to the Lequarci waterfalls and the 16th-century church dedicated to Saint Barbara.

High peaks, holm oak forests, and superb panoramas will accompany you on this day. You will start by riding through the picturesque mountain village with its open-air museum, admiring the works of Maria Lai and other internationally renowned artists. Cross the old railway line with a beautiful view of the Pardu valley and arrive at the small hamlet of Gairo Tacquisara nestled in the limestone mountains.

You will cross the village of Ussassai before arriving at Seui. Seui is a village rich in history and culture located between Ogliastra and Barbagia, where you can visit the old Spanish prisons and the Museum of Rural Culture.

Continue your ride to the village of Sadali, the water village, where you will be fascinated by its narrow streets, the characteristic stone houses and the small S. Valentino waterfall in the heart of the old town. A warm welcome awaits you from your host who will show you the village’s sensory museum and give you an explanation of the medicinal plants.

  • Cycling 50km
  • Elevation 950 m

Today you are about to explore the country roads of the Gennargentu National Park. Looking north you can see Punta La Marmora, the highest peak in Sardinia. Ride along the rim of the Flumendosa lake till Villagrande Strisaili, one of the few villages to be part of Sardinia’s Blue Zone.

  • Cycling 53km
  • Elevation 890 m

From the village of the centenarians, reach the lake of S. Lucia. Continuing in bucolic country roads you will reach the town of Triei then Arrive at Santa Maria Navarrese, which owes its name, according to legend, to a Spanish princess of Navarra who shipwrecked with her ship in these places.

  • Cycling 54km
  • Elevation 300 m

Today is a free day with a lot of options! For example, you could enjoy the beach, hike along the coastal path to Perda longa in about 3 hours or simply discover the surroundings.

We recommend a boat trip to the Gulf of Orosei to visit the stunning coves (to be booked on-site). It is also possible to cycle to meet shepherds in Urzulei or Baunei and to discover their livelihoods. Participate in milking goats or making cheese and of course, you will have lunch with them. In the evening go for an “Aperitivo” at one of the bars facing the sea!

Today you can really delight in the beauty of the coastal surroundings and in the variety of landscapes: cycle in front of the white sandy beach of Lido di Orrì and the red stones of the bay of Cea. Cross the Teccu plateau to reach Barisardo where you can visit the old Aragonese tower built on the beach to defend the population from Arab invasions. Pedal your way over to Cardedu, where long white beaches and crystal blue waters await you.

In the evening you are welcomed for dinner by Maria from the farmhouse. If you wish, you may learn to make the famous Sardinian pasta (culurgiornes) over a glass of wine, to be enjoyed with moderation!

  • Cycling 55km
  • Elevation 400 m

Today’s route begins with the ascent of the Rio Pardu schist valley (a Natural Monument of Sardinia); a road winding its way through green hills, covered with olive trees and rows of vines from which the famous Cannonau wine was born. On the way to Jerzu, Giovanni will invite you to taste his famous wine (in option, wine tasting on request).

It seems that this wine is the secret of the longevity of the region’s inhabitants. In the evening you will arrive in Ulassai. Here we suggest you different options: a visit to the textile workshop, or to the caves of Su Marmuri or to the Art Museum of the artist Maria Lai. We also recommend you to take the panoramic road towards the Lequarci waterfalls and the 16th-century church dedicated to Santa Barbara.
