  • Enjoy spectacular scenery set in a truly unspoilt landscape
  • Feast on exquisite Sardinian cuisine

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.
