The beauty of this package is in the freedom it offers: without a guide, you are free to decide the timing, pace, and stops of your journey. Travel freely, travel your way!

5/5 Challenging

Difficult, between 60 and over 100 kilometers per day with an elevation gain between 800 and over 2000 meters.



The starting point is different from the ending point, with overnight stays in different hotels and daily stages.


Day 1: Olbia
Private transfer or individual arrival in Olbia and overnight stay. After settling your luggage, take the opportunity to visit this incredible city.

Day 2: Olbia – Pattada (78 km; +/-1700 m)
Today you will get to know the most authentic part of Sardinia, crossing the Ala Mountains: endless pastures and oak forests. During the journey, you can stop in the small village of Pattada, where you will stay overnight in a cozy hotel.

Day 3: Pattada – Cala Gonone (93 km; +/-1500 m)
As you tackle some hills, immediately after Bitti, the majestic limestone massif of Supramonte will open up before your eyes. An exciting descent leads you from the mountain to the seaside village of Cala Gonone, where you will spend the night.

Day 4: Cala Gonone – Fonni (68 km; /-1700 m)
Today, cycling through olive groves and Cannonau vineyards, you will reach Oliena, a typical village of the Sardinian hinterland characterized by stone houses, wrought iron balconies and imposing wooden doors. You will then climb the slopes of the Supramonte to Orgosolo, where you will admire the famous murals that recount old social conflicts. After passing Mamoiada, you will reach a thousand meters above sea level in Fonni, where your hotel, elegantly housed in an ancient palace in the historic center, awaits you.

Day 5: Fonni – Villanovaforru (113 km; +/-1500 m)
In today's stage, you will cross the Barbagia, the heart of the island. Between the chestnut woods of Ovodda and the lush valley of Sorgono, you will reach the gentle hills of Marmilla. Cycling along quiet country roads, you will reach the agricultural village of Villanovaforru.

Day 6: Villanovaforru – Arbus (106 km; +/-1500 m)
Today you will cycle in the uncontaminated and wild environment of the Costa Verde, one of the contexts of greatest natural value in Sardinia. For the night, you will stay in a farmhouse renowned for the preparation of inviting traditional dishes.

Day 7: Arbus – Calasetta (103 km; +/-1000 m)
This stage is dedicated to Sardinia's ancient mining activity, with the fascinating abandoned mines of Ingortosu and Masua. After the enchanting cove of Cala Domestica and the suggestive Pan di Zucchero rocky outcrop, you will arrive at the surprising Nebida washery: immersed in the colors of the Mediterranean scrub, it overlooks the sea at the end of a 540-step descent. After a beautiful descent to the beach of Fontanamare, you will reach Portoscuso where a ferry will take you to the island of Carloforte, famous for red tuna fishing. From Carloforte, you will arrive in Calasetta on the island of Sant'Antioco, where you will stop in an elegant hotel for the night.

Day 8: Calasetta – Pula (95 km; +/-720 m)
The final highlight of your tour is the suggestive and wild South Coast, with its white beaches, lush nature and its imposing cliffs: Capo Malfatano with the XVI century tower and Capo Spartivento. We recommend a visit to the ancient Phoenician settlement in Nora.

Day 9: Pula 
After breakfast, end of services and individual departure.
