Entrance is highly recommended to enjoy our itinerary to the fullest, but it is not mandatory!
For this itinerary, if you don’t have access to a car, a mountain bike is essential, as the route includes stretches of unpaved roads. It’s highly advisable to bring provisions such as food, ample water, and sun protection, especially on Caprera Island, where finding refreshments can be challenging. While exploring Caprera, we also strongly recommend preserving the historical landmarks by not venturing into or climbing dangerous rocks and ruins. Most of these sites are remote and hard to reach in case of emergencies. Additionally, exercise caution when sharing the road with other vehicles, and maintain a sense of responsibility, particularly on Caprera, which is a pristine island where visitors are largely self-reliant.
