You’ll ride an epic loop around the highest peaks of Sardinia, through the woods of Barbagia Belvì and Seulo, the mountain pastures of Barbagia Ollollai and finally the typical “Tacchi” of Ogliastra,  which are limestone plateaus with high white cliffs, the unique landscapes of this beautiful corner of Sardinia. You will be surprised by the wild beauty of nature, where the action of erosion of the river and its tributaries have carved valleys, creating bizarre shapes out of the rocks.
