Bike Tour: Sardinia: Along the Costa Verde - 6 days

When you first got here, in the region of Sardinia called Sulcis-Iglesiente you immediately feel why it is also known as Costa Verde-The Green Coast-: this place is remote, wild and has an industrial- mines past that forged the landscape and the people. This past of mineral extraction (started 8.000 years ago) creates a unique combination of abandoned mine sites together with the natural beauty of the area and stimulates the curiosity of whom come to this area for the first time, that feeling of “here there’s a story to be told”.
