Cycling in Sardinia

Cycling is a superb way to see Sardinia as it allows you to get off the beaten track and really get to the heart of the island. And some of the views are spectacular...

One look at a map will show you exactly how wild the island is. You could cycle for days here without meeting anybody, crossing narrow trails, rough gravel tracks and steep climbs. Cycling in Sardinia can be challenging, but it is very rewarding.

Le Prigionette Nature Reserve at Porto Conte in the northwest is a great spot as are Gallura and Gennargentu. The latter is perhaps best known as the location of the Gennargentu National Park, home to diverse flora and fauna as well as Sardinia's highest mountain. The park offers both leisurely and tough cycling routes, allowing you to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery or alternatively, test yourself against the rugged landscapes of the island.

There are plenty of places dotted around the island to hire bicycles, both road and mountain bikes and even E-bikes are available. You will easily be able to find tours, that will take you on a wonderful journey through the Sardinian landscape, exploring the coastline, mountain roads and quaint tiny villages. Cycling in Sardinia is an activity that everyone can enjoy!
