Unique cycling tour Sardinia

An ancient land with an ancient language Sardinia is a uniquely fascinating place, forged by many centuries of culture and history, in its strategic position at the center of Mediterranean, standing silently ever-present across the island, the enigmatic Nuraghes: these round fortresses built in pre-historic times still survive.
All this combines with the breathtaking beautiful and varied natural environment to create a truly  special place for a bike tour adventure. Fabulous food, lovely wine to drink Cannonau, spectacular beaches, archeological treasures, an isolated rugged  interior and people renowned for hospitality…so many reason to join this trip!
