Tour Overview

The Mediterranean island of Sardinia is well known for its white sandy beaches, mystical ancient history and wild mountainous interior. It's an island full of adventure for both young and old with the intrigue of its own language and cultural traditions, mouth watering local flavours and idyllic beaches providing something for everyone in the family. This itinerary will see you exploring Sardinia's southern coastline by bike with the kids, an ideal way to combine quality beach time with an interactive focus. The southern coast of Sardinia has much to offer all ages; cycle through small fishing villages, past Romanesque ruins and lagoons packed with pink flamingos; wander through vineyards and old olive groves, take in the spectacular views of dramatic cliffs and of course relax on the famous white sandy beaches. Whilst cycling between villages spend the night in quality family friendly hotels and feast on exquisite Sardinian cuisine. With a range of cycle options for kids and adults including bike seats, trailers and electric bikes there are no excuses not to be active on this inspiring relaxed pace cycling trip.

Accommodation

The hotels described are our usual choice of accommodation, however if these are not available then alternatives are used and if these are of a different standard you will be informed. Baths/showers: Many rooms with ensuite/private facilities have a shower rather than a bath, usually because of limited space. Some hotels/guesthouses may however have a separate room in the house where a bath is available to guests. You will spend two nights at each accommodation except in Sant'Anna Arresi (which is one night only).

Grading

This tour is graded introductory (grade 1) with daily cycling distances between 20 and 36km (12.5 and 22.5mi). The accent is on keeping a relaxed pace to take in all of the attractions, with time to stop and take photos. It is considered suitable for cyclists with a reasonable level of fitness. Bike options are available to make the cycling with children easier. *For safety reasons, we insist that cycle helmets be included as a compulsory item on your equipment list.

What You Carry

During the cycle day you will carry your daily requirements in the pannier provided with the bike. This may include your lunch, wet weather gear, mobile phone and water. A small daypack which can be kept inside the pannier is useful for sightseeing.
