After a good Italian breakfast, we jump on our bikes and head off from the hotel, straight into the wilderness. After an easy one hour cruise, and a 30 minute climb on a dirt road in the vast nature reserve of Taccu, we’ll reach the ancient watch tower Su Taccu, on the highest point of the plateau at 1000(m.s.l).
From this point our local guide will point out the breath-taking territory surrounding us, that we will cover in the first two days.
The first trail will throw you right into the action, following our guide along ancient hunting trails, traversing through an enchanted forest onto an open shelf, then following a ridgeline, all the way down into the valley.
After our meal, we’ll continue riding without any climbing involved this time, down to the valley floor, before returning back up in our shuttle - always waiting for us.
When we’ve satisfied our appetite for riding, we’ll head back up to Ulassai for a refreshing Italian aperitivo, with the option of visiting the old train station museum of the world renowned artist Maria Lai, and/or the "Cooperativa Tessile", to witness the ancient craft of weaving with a hand loom. A traditional artisan craft that is amazing to see!
