Sardinia

A motorcycle journey in Sardinia is a life experience and a little foretaste of paradise. Fantastic twisty roads, highly gripping tarmac, amazing landscapes, pristine nature and wonderful colors make it a dream destination for bikers. The marvelous crystal-clear sea of Sardinia lacks nothing compared to the exotic dream places we all long to travel to for heavenly holidays. Sardinia, with its pink, gray and black velvet roads will ride with you across smooth slopes and plateaus made of hundreds of magical shades of green, in absolute silence, among explosions of fragrance, light and color throughout the day till late at night. It is a land blessed by the sun, whose generous rays warm people, traditions and landscapes, all unique and without any blots to distract the traveler’s gaze. A land where friendship and hospitality are as old as the Nuragic, Phoenician, and Roman civilizations that can be seen and felt everywhere. Indeed beside the marvelous nature it also has an enviable historical and cultural background, from the Paleolithic ages to the more recent era of the Kingdom of Italy and the contemporary colorful mural paintings depicting scenes of everyday life that adorn many Sardinian villages. A land as mysterious as the ancient peoples that bestrode it, as bewitching as the wonderful flavors of its cuisine, as divine as the nectar of its wines, as clear as the Caribbean waters of its beaches, as free as the pure air you breathe there, and as beautiful as the top-class hotels that distinguish it. Fascinated by the charm of this exceptional region, where roads still offer unbounded panoramas toward infinity, where there are no visitors – only brothers and sisters – we have decided to give pride of place to Sardinia in our tour program, focusing on one thing only: offering you a dream-come-true holiday!

Tour program details

Day 1: Meeting in Milan (Milano)
We meet in the afternoon in our hotel in Milan and go together to pick up the rental bikes. We all meet up before dinner for a short but important briefing, the time to explain a few simple rules for organizing and synchronizing things, thus ensuring that everyone has a safe holiday that is unforgettable for all the right reasons. Then we’ll break the ice and start forging some group spirit over a classic Italian pre-dinner aperitivo.
Overnight in 4-star hotel in Milan; included meals: D.

Day 2: 260 km
Our tour begins at 9:00 AM, heading to Genoa (Genova). After a short stretch on the motorway, just the necessary distance to leave Milan behind us, we’ll find ourselves meandering on beautiful roads in the middle of the superb vineyards and amid the passes of the lower Alps of Piedmont. As regards to food, we start the journey in the best possible way enjoying a delicious lunch made up of regional specialities in a typical Piedmontese restaurant. In the late afternoon we will reach Genoa, in Liguria, where we’ll embark for Sardinia from the port of Genoa.
Overnight on board in double en-suite cabin; included meals: B, L. Neither dinner, to be taken on the ship, nor breakfast on the next morning are included.

Day 3: 230 km
After docking at Porto Torres and a quick break in a coffee shop for those who want to have breakfast on terra ferma, we reach our hotel in Alghero where we’ll merge with the group of those who have chosen to start the tour directly in Sardinia. After a short meeting we begin our Sardinian wandering along panoramic coastal roads and exciting mountain routes, looking for lakes and prehistoric remains. It’s properly in the valley of nuraghes along exhilarating twisty roads in the hinterland that we’ll visit our first nuraghe before riding back to the enchanting Catalan town of Alghero. Chilling out after dinner with a stroll to savor the historic center and its charming Spanish-styled streets is a must.
Overnight in 4-star hotel in Alghero; included meals: D.

Day 4: 190 km
Today is about relishing the biking paradise that is Sardinia in all its glory. We take in some classic bikers’ routes with an archeological theme, heading southwards. An itinerary made of exhilarating motorcycling roads, wandering among the many fascinating villages painted with murales, another typical Sardinian feature, like real open-air galleries, and some Roman history.
Overnight in 4-star hotel in Guspini; included meals: B, D.

Day 5: 220 km
During a superb ride in the hinterland we visit the most important nuraghe in the world (a Unesco world heritage site). It’s the second time that we mention nuraghe and I’m sure you’re wondering what it is … A construction with more than a hint of mystery about it! You’ll find out more on the spot.  And then we have our first encounter with the mountainous landscapes of Gennargentu Park, named after the island’s highest peak.
Overnight in 4-star hotel in Guspini; included meals: B,D.

Day 6: 200 km
A full day awaits with visits to two of Sardinia’s most unmissable sights: one of the most important Phoenician-Punic settlements and a cave whose crystalline formations are virtually unique in Europe. There are some great riding roads here, as used by the leading motorbike manufacturers (including Aprilia and BMW) to film their TV adverts and as test routes. Lunch in a typical restaurant. We’ll conclude the day in the enchanting Sardinian main town Cagliari and would suggest you to have an aperitif in the old castle district, on the bastions, then a nice dinner in the picturesque harbour lanes and finish the evening with some night life at the Poetto, Cagliari’s beach and discos area.
Overnight in 4-star hotel in Cagliari;  included meals: B, L.

Day 7: 210 km
More classic roads and breathtaking coastal scenery lie in wait, with further fascinating remains of ancient civilizations, before we head over to the eastern coast. A wow day with typical Sardininan lunch on the go.
Overnight in 4-star hotel in Arbatax; included meals: B, L, D.

Day 8: 0 – … km
After 7 days on the bike you deserve a rest day to be spent as you like. We recommend to spend the rest days off the bike and give your body some relief. Hereunder just three proposals for a relaxing day:

  • stay in our seaside hotel and enjoy the beach, the pool, the sauna … whatever takes your fancy
  • take a boat trip to the Bue Marino Grotto (named after the monk seal or “sea ox”) and have a dip in Sardinia’s three most famous coves, reachable only by water
  • marvel at the unique creations by motorcycle-sculptor-cum-engineer Giordano Loi. We then take a guided tour of a Sardinian goldsmith’s studio (with a demonstration of the filigree work at which the islanders excel) . But this option will require a short transfer by bike!

Overnight in 4-star hotel in Arbatax; included meals: B. No main meal is included  so this rest day is your oyster from early morning until late.

Day 9: 260 km
Another superb tour beckons out north-east. What’s better after a relaxed day than a great ride on the mythical Orientale Sarda, stopping at the delightful seaside enclave of Cala Gonone, followed by a typical shepherds’ lunch in the hinterland  heights and another fantastic twisty road afterwards, to help you digest, before reaching our last hotel in Sardinia on the famous Emerald Coast.
Overnight in 4-star hotel in area Olbia; included meals: B, L.

Day 10: 240 km
With so many kilometers in our wheels we need to reload our batteries, first exploring the most glamorous contemporary resorts of the famous Costa Smeralda (Emerald Coast), realm of the international jet set, and then, skipping back in time to mysterious Ichnusa, at the prehistoric energy centres called Giants’ Graves… Our next destination will be the wild and amazing Maddalena island before turning back to our hotel on the nth fantastic bikers’ road. 
Overnight in 4-star hotel in area Olbia; included meals: B, D.

Day 11: 190 km
That’s our last day on the island, the last ode to the beautiful scenery and, as every day, to the fantastic motorcycle roads of this enchanting land. We go for a ride through the moonscape scenery of Valle della Luna and pay a last visit to the charming town of Castelsardo before returning to Alghero where we’ll leave those who have chosen to start and finish the tour directly on the island and reach Porto Torres to embark. Should we have enough time, we could treat ourselves to a last stop at the Domus de Jana (fairies’ houses) before sailing back to the mainland.
Overnight on board in double en-suite cabin; included meals: B, L. Neither dinner, to be taken on the ship, nor breakfast on the next morning are included.

Day 12: 250 km
After docking at Genoa and a quick break in a coffee shop for those who want to have breakfast on terra firma, we start our way back to Milan strolling along the wonderful Ligurian Riviera, with a must-visit to Portofino, the cradle of Italy’s Dolce Vita, before crossing the Apennines in the neighborhood of Piacenza and riding back to our initial hotel in Milan where we drop off the rental bikes. An opulent farewell dinner at the hotel is the only appropriate happy ending we could think of for this adventure together.
Overnight in 4-star hotel in Milan; included meals: L, D.

Day 13: Farewells in Milan
We say our goodbyes after breakfast, leaving you free to go home or explore further the magic of Italy on your own. There are plenty of opportunities to continue your trip that we can help you planning!
