This tour is available for just 2 nights / 3 days cycling.

This bike tour is not a point to point, so you will stay in one 4* seafront hotel with swimming pool. You won’t move from  hotel to hotel, for a safe vacation.

This bike tour is designed for those who have short time to dedicate to cycling holidays but still want to take advantage of the beauty of the island.

You will arrive with your flight in Cagliari and then move with an organized transfer (included in the price) to Calasetta village, on the minor island of Sant’Antioco. You can arrive on the weekend or any other day of the week and at any time, we will be at your disposal to organize this short escape in the best possible way.

In Calasetta you will be welcomed by a fantastic hotel located near the sea, in the countryside of the village; from here you will leave by bicycle to discover the wonders of the two smaller islands in the south west (Sant’Antioco and San Pietro).

Here you can discover the flavors of both Sardinian cuisine and the particular one of ancient Genoa, as the inhabitants of the island of San Pietro, the Carlofortini, are of recent Genoese origin and have maintained their ancient dialect and their centuries-old traditions.

At the end of the tour the return to Cagliari airport is guaranteed by a shuttle and is included in the price.

Luci del Faro cycling Holidays Sardinia 2
Hotel Luci del Faro, Calasetta

Located in front of San Pietro Island, the Luci del Faro hotel offers all the services and modern comforts, recently built with a 3 star. this hotel is very near to the fantastic beach of Calasetta and offers a shuttle service for those who want to enjoy in the center of Calasetta, only 3 km away.


I contacted Mauro to arrange a self guided bike trip. I had an excellent e-bike and my husband loved the road bike provided for us. The planning was made easy by BTS staff whom made excellent suggestions and answered all my questions by email efficiently and quickly. His hotel choice was good to exceptional – especially our first hotel – Villa Mosca – in Alghero! Each day our
luggage was transferred and in our room at our next destination before we were there!
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mauro and Bike Tour Sardinia to anyone. We’ve done several other tours with other companies and this was definitely the best one yet! We would like to return to Sardinia one day! Stunningly beautiful island, wonderful friendly people, and excellent food and wine!

Beautiful landscape, unique boutique hotels, great food and wonderful biking, basically describes our experience with Bike Tour Sardinia. We went from Alghero to Oristano, exploring the medieval towns and coast. Mauro arranged a relatively seamless and fabulous self-guided adventure, being consistently available, helpful and responsive. We had both e-bikes and standard, but for me, the e-bike added ease and the ability for further exploration and smiles. I highly recommend Bike Tour Sardinia as a way to explore this beautiful island.
