Short Description

Sardinia's north western coast, the aptly named Costa Smeralda, has been enchanting visitors for years with its stunning rugged coastline, beautiful inlets, impeccable white sandy beaches and of course impossibly turquoise seas. This 7 night self guided holiday takes you to some of the highlights of the Emerald Coast, as well as to its lesser known inland wine area, inner heartlands and traditional hilltop villages, which sit perfectly placed between Sardinia's craggy mountains and the glittering sea. Explore la Maddalena, an island of simply exquisite beauty encapsulating the very best coastal vistas of pristine shores, deserted coves and shimmering waters. Pedal into the heart of the Gallura countryside, once the territory of smugglers and bandits that hid in the age old cork forest. Sample some of the best wines Sardinia has to offer from its abundant Vermentino vineyards and discover the mysterious nuraghe - remarkable Bronze Age remains that are unique to Sardinia. Pick up a souvenir at the lively market in the artists' village of San Pantaleo and wander the chic, pastel coloured lanes of elegant Porto Cervo before ending the trip in Cannigione, the gateway to the Costa Smeralda.Explore Sardinia's North Western Coast by bike

Itinerary

Flight Inclusive

Day 1 Arrive in Cannigione

Arrive in Cannigione, the gateway to the Costa Smeralda.

Day 2 Cannigione to Palau via La Maddalena

Pedal along the coast to Palau, then hop on a ferry to La Maddalena, a National Park and one of the 60 islands in Sardinia's largest archipelago. There are breathtaking views as you follow the stunning coastal road around the island. Cross to the island of Caprera, the resting place of Garibaldi, the unifier of Italy, before returning to vibrant Palau.

Day 3 Palau to Santa Teresa Gallura

Head for the hills and the pretty village of San Pasquale for spectacular views of La Maddalena archipelago. Continue on tranquil country lanes to the charming seaside town of Santa Teresa, with its rugged coastline and gorgeous sandy beach, and views over to Corsica on a clear day.

Day 4 Santa Teresa Gallura to Stazzo

Detour to the promontory of Capo Testa for superb vistas over to the Bonificio Strait then head into the peaceful Gallura countryside with its endless cork forests, dramatic wind carved boulders and craggy peaks looming overhead. Overnight in a stunning Sardinian stazzo, a series of lovingly converted rural dwellings, with swimming pool and wellness centre.

Day 5 Nuraghe loop ride

Cycle along quiet country lanes to the megalithic Giant's Grave of Coddu Vecchiu and the Nuraghe la Prisgiona, the fascinating stone remains of a Bronze Age village. Today the sites are surrounded by endless Vermentino vineyards. Savour the prize-winning wine in a local winery (wine tasting included) before returning to your stazzo.

Day 6 Stazzo to San Pantaleo

Ride to colourful Arzachena, the town around which the Costa Smeralda emerged, then climb to the lovely village of San Pantaleo, nestled below towering granite crags. A haven for artists and sculptors, wander round the village's cobbled streets and its art shops and cafes and enjoy its lively artisan market (Thursday morning).

Day 7 San Pantaleo to Cannigione

Superb cycling today as you make your way back to the Costa Smeralda. Lunch perhaps in glamorous Porto Cervo with its exclusive boutiques and fine dining, then pedal past white sandy beaches, hidden inlets framed by fragrant juniper bushes and impossibly turquoise waters to Cannigione.

Meals Included

Dinner: The food on Sardinia is as unique as it is, with simple dishes packed with intense flavours. Rich sheep cheeses served with the traditional, crisp shepherd's flat bread, saffron infused ravioli and to finish, cheese and lemon seadas drizzled in honey can be found everywhere, as well as, of course, freshly caught seafood, all washed down with the excellent local Carignano and Vermentino wines. Fregola – a kind of giant couscous often served tomatoes and seafood – is also  popular. Of course, you also get the more traditional Italian dishes including pizza, and grilled or roasted meats – like suckling pig – which make tasty secondi. To compliment the end of your meal, try a glass of Mirto - Sardinia’s after dinner liqueur, which is made from the leaves of the myrtle plant.
