Bike tour – Mount Tuttavista
CYCLING TO DISCOVER SARDINIAN HISTORY AND CULTURE
Pedaling on quiet and easy country roads we will discover the history and the territory Orosei and Galtellì. From the historical centers to the best scenic roads we will ride our mountain bikes around a Mount whose name is synonymous of “panorama”
Starting from the center of Orosei, we will visit some of the historical buildings that marked its medieval history. At the end of the town, we will take a quiet and very panoramic country road, backtracking the Cedrino River.
This takes us to the hamlets of Onifai, Irgoli, and Loculi, revealing a wonderful panorama over the valley and the dirt tracks that will lead us to the center of Galtellì. Touring the historical center of this little town is a must. We will pedal along the cobbled alleys to visit the many little churches and the buildings that once belonged to artists and bishops.
From the panoramic terrace of St.Peter cathedral, we will ride our bikes to the country road that runs at the base of Mount Tuttavista, circumnavigating it back to Orosei. Just before town, the itinerary passes through the enormous marble caves and Dante’s infernal circles.
Bicycles: base price includes a front-shocks mountain bike. It is also possible to book a front-shocks Electric Mountain Bike, an additional €20 per person.
