The tour offers a complete overview of the island. Our goal is to satisfy the needs of the riders who want to explore the hinterland, but we also aim to stimulate the curiosity of those who choose the island because of its amazing sea, intriguing and encouraging them to move away from the crowded beaches to discover an unknown inland. The landscape charaterized by a nature once sweet and later bitter, but always wild and fascinating, is an ideal theatre for this kind of experience. Plenty of monuments and archaeological sites will be encountered along the way (nuraghi, domus de jana, graves of giants ...), they represent the ancestral forms of a human settlement process. The local population reflects the authenticity of this unaffected environment. All this will be a real "exclusive" experience, a "unicum" not found in the usual tourist routes.
