We booked a full day Asinara tour through Thomson at the Baia di Conti hotel. The brochure explains that the island was once a concentration camp, prison, quarantine zone. So naturally, I expected lots of history, alongside lots of nature, looking at the wild horses and albino donkeys. No such luck. The concentration camp wasn't mentioned, no details were given...

My husband I were both delighted with this amazing trip, an untouched and very beautiful part of Sardinia, we took the mini train around the island, our tour guide called Nelly was extremely informative and nothing was too much trouble for her, highly recommended. Loved seeing the white donkeys whose eyes are blue we were told and not albino, wild... More

I took the ferry from Porto Torres (in July the ticket desk opens at 8am but get there early as tickets are limited, EUR15 return). On arrival in La Reale I hired a bike for EUR15 (electric bikes are EUR30 and electric buggy's EUR70) and cycled north to Cala d'Olivia. It was a great ride, some hills but it's no... More

Liked the comical and adorable wild Albino donkeys, wild horses and goats. The rocky and flower filled landscape was unique. Take a 4 WD tour about 50 euro each for 4-5 hours English speaking guides available. Nothing to dislike here, but pack a lunch as their is only 2 snack bars.

Asinara is fascinating if you are interested in nature and history but be prepared to spend a lot more money than you would on the mainland for the equivalent facilities. Since we didn't want to be packed into a Land Rover for the group tour, we hired an electric golf cart at Cala Reale but it cost €100 for 24... More

We took a tour on one of 4x4 Defenders and it's been pretty good. But pretty expensive. I think this is still slightly overpriced but if money is not a huge issue for you it's well worth the time.

Asinara National Park is really nice island to see (great to visit when it is a little cloudy). You can book the guidance with Land Rover (50e) and see the whole island in one day (Giuliana was just perfect guide!). Bikes are also available there (15 or 20e per day). the island has unique vegetation and beautiful nature. I can... More

We booked a jeep tour with Asinaraland (for € 50,- each). The tour started at 8.30 and ended at 17.00h. We took the boat from Stintino to the island (included). On the boat, we met our amazing guide Vera. In 20 minutes we arrived on the Island. Our guide was driving the jeep and told us a lot about the... More

Any visit to this beautiful, untouched corner of Sardinia requires the jeep tour to do the area justice. No point pootling around on the model railway. Get in the jeep and see the sights. It's a bumpy, shoogly, occasionally uncomfortable but endlessly rewarding way of engaging first hand with the idyllic island of Asinara. The day we went the crossing... More
