We went there with an agency and we traveled around by two trains (one of them got stuck a bit after the start so we all had to squeeze on one train). All in all it was not that bad but it was nothing special. One of the things they do not advertise and is worth stopping for is a... More

Amazing nature with awesome sea colour. Great time spends there learning about animals and plants still living there and how they are preserved. The use as a jail of this island makes it also very interesting I suggest to take a Jeep/4x4 tour with a guide that explains everything. The tour is well designed and it take full day (with... More

Having read various reviews on Asinara National Park we decided to visit. However, I wish I had not ignored the small but significant number of reviewers who weren't happy with it. We took the ferry over first thing. Nice journey over there, approx 1.5 hours. Arrived, claustophobic cafe and room full of leaflets in Italian, followed by undignified scramble for... More

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
