Private transfer or independent arrival to a lovely farmhouse near Montevecchio, overnight.

2nd day: Montevecchio loop tour (38 km, climb 920mt)
After the centre of Montevecchio, once the most important mining village of the Sulcis area, enjoy the truly spectacular single track descent along the Rio Irvi. You will cross it 18 times before arriving to the sea! Relax along the magnificent Costa Verde, the Green coast, so named after the colour of its waters. Time for some climbing now: the unique profile of Monte Arcuentu soon comes into view and will take you back to the agriturismo.

3rd day: Montevecchio – Fighezia (41 km, climb 750mt)
Ride another breathtaking single track down to one of the fascinating Piscinas beach with its sand dunes over 50m high. Riding along old mining tracks, you reach the amazing golden beach of Scivu (rest highly suggested!). Your base tonight is a charming agriturismo, ready to welcome you with its fine regional cuisine.

4th day: Fighezia – Nebida (44-49 km, climb 1060 mt)
Start your day with yet another exciting descent (this time on asphalt) down to Fluminimaggiore. Along old mining roads, you will ride through one of the wildest and most remote areas of Sardinia. Back to the coast in Nebida, don’t miss a beautiful natural show: the view of the Pan di Zucchero cliff at dusk.

5th day: end of tour
After breakfast, end of services.
