Sardinia Multi Sport & Foodie Active Tour

From Santu Lussurgiu to Pula along the Sardinian Sea enjoying the Italian Dolcevita.

The island of Sardinia is for pure adventurers and the varied landscape is ripe for exploration.  From the beaches to the mountains through forests and hilltop villages…Sardinia is not just a beach paradise, but an open playground for multi sport active holidays.

Scantily populated with breathtaking views all around, you are uninhibited to explore.  Spend a week exploring the wild Landscapes of the island: from the historical west coast of Oristano to the sunbathed southern beaches of Pula.  Starting in Medieval villages such as SantuLussurgiu, Bosa and Cuglieri down to Oristano rich in antiquity.

The mountains are rich with old mines and rough trails to be discovered through thick green Mediterranean vegetation and cork oak forests.

Sardinian cuisine is also a mélange of cultures and traditions: Recipes are based either on lamb, pork and wild boar or seafood specialties prepared in diverse Mediterranean styles based upon regional traditions.  A wide variety of cheeses, olive oils and good wines are also made in Sardinia, especially sweet wines.

Reviews

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.
