The new Bike Park stretches for 120 hectares in the Sulcis Mountain Park which occupies around 70,000 hectares in southwest Sardinia in the provinces of Cagliari and Carbonia-Iglesias, and covers 15 municipalities.
The geology of this area goes back to ancient times, more than 600 million years ago (the first formations date back to the Cambrian period) and the morphology of the land is extremely varied, to the point of being quite wild in some parts due to its irregularity.
The highest peaks are just over 1,000 metres, while the others average 500-700 metres, and the sheer number of peaks creates a highly irregular morphology. The area is a real natural paradise for hikers and mountain bikers who can access the mountain park directly from the resort through the valleys hewn out by the tributaries of the main river, the Rio di Pula.
Whether hiking up on foot or riding down an adrenalin-pumping descent on their mountain bikes, our guests can admire the wild Mediterranean scrub, consisting mainly of holm oak, cork oak, eucalyptus, strawberry trees and broom.
And they could very well come across the largest population of Sardinian deer in the world (around 2500), a healthy number of fallow deer and wild boar, and many birds of prey in danger of extinction, such as the golden eagle, Bonelli’s eagle, the Sardinian goshawk and the pelegrine falcon.
