The 6-day tour covers a total distance of 380 kilometres and goes through picturesque sceneries and unique stunning spots.
The panorama changes a lot in a peculiar way: uncontaminated beaches, breath-taking cliffs, sand dunes, Mediterranean scrub vegetation, calcareous crags, densely wooded mountains and water flows. During the tour you will enjoy traditional and simple food, thus rediscovering old genuine local flavours.

2° stage Santa Lucia-Cala Gonone:

We go back to the seaside. After 20 kilometres of paved road, we ride off road (fun single tracks and panoramic views guaranteed) until the beach called Cala Sisine.
