SHORT TOUR DESCRIPTION

1st day, Thursday: welcome in the island

Guests arrival and accommodation in a resort located on a cliff , just in front of the sea and far from chaos. Time at your disposal to discover the island.

 

Meals: welcome aperitif

Accomodation: Poecylia Resort

2nd day, Friday: Bike tour of the island

Breakfast and briefing for the day activities. The bike tour rides you mainly along the coast of this marvellous island, admiring cliffs, lonely beaches and endless horizons.

Starting your bike tour, we will ride along a dirt-road, that sometimes becomes a single track, with several up and down-hills and some more technical passages. We follow our road reaching the area known as Tanche for an amazing tour inside a vineyard discovering the wines of this winery. Riding along single tracks and paths suitable for MTB lovers, we will reach a small but well-known beach called La Caletta, where we will stop for a rest and a small lunch on the beach: you will surely fall in love with this marvellous location where you’ll desire to come back to enjoy the sunset. The tour goes on following much easier roads heading for the Columns, sea-stacks symbol of the island. Arriving in the town-centre of Carloforte (the only town of the island), we will discover together the typical lanes called by the locals “carrugi” where voyagers will find some particular and lovely perspective that takes them back in centuries. After the centre town visit, here we go ahead for the Tonnara (the ancient tuna fish pond), the Fungo and Guardia Mori hill. Least but not last, here it is Capo Sandalo: one of the most fascinating, breath-taking location you have ever seen.

Meals: breakfast/lunch/dinner

Destination: Bike tour of the island

3rd day, Saturday: trekking tour the Peregrine Hawk – “falco della regina”

Moving from the Becco site, we will pass through the abandoned mine of manganese and ochre. We will see the remains of an old and flourishing human activity that, not so far in time, was fully productive. We will then pass through Capo Rosso that will lead us to Capo Sandalo and finally, passing by the lighthouse, we will arrive to Cala Fico where you may have a swim in these fresh and crystalline waters, otherwise if you prefer, you may have a lunch at the kiosk or maybe, if your interests are of geological kind, a short visit to the Commenditi site (geological formation renewed all over the academic world) will be the best choice.

As conclusion of the day, a birdwatching activity with a specialised local guide.
