This year we have combined the best riding from two of our Guides' favourite trips to create a fantastic mountain bike holiday in Italy. Remote, sparsely inhabited with long golden sandy beaches and stunning mountains, La Costa Verde in Sardinia is the perfect setting for this week long mountain biking extravaganza.
Amongst stunning Mediterranean scenery we ride speedy twisting singletracks to the coast, picturesque wooded trails and remote mountain passes which will excite and enthuse riders, whatever their level. Riding through remote mining villages and along rugged coastlines to fishing villages, surrounded by emerald blue seas, many of the rides finish at the beach, so don’t forget to pack your swimwear for the post ride dip! 
Our base for the first part of the week, nestling in the peaceful foothills of the Arcuentu Mountains in the south west of the island, is a family-run agriturismo. From here we take a few days to explore the network of superb trails and singletrack that link these old mining villages and that have now become Sardinia’s most prestigious MTB destination! 
Moving to the coast mid-point, our accommodation is a charming hotel and is an ideal setting for the second part of our holiday! With sun terraces overlooking uninterrupted coastal and mountain views, and yet only a stones throw from the long sandy beach of Portixeddu, what better place to relax? 
If you can't find a date to suit, or want to go it alone, why not try the self-guided version of this trip!
If you have a day or two to spare why not extend your trip with some trekking or sea kayaking. Our local team can join you for a day’s guiding or we can provide the information and equipment to allow you to enjoy the routes self-guided, just give us a call for further info.
Please Note. There have been some changes to the Costa Verde trip for 2014 and some of the details are subject to change prior to the start of the 2014 season. Please ask if you have any queries about this.
