Live a unique and fascinating trekking experience in the Asinara National Park. A 3 hours drive from Cagliari through the beautiful Sardinian countryside to get to the northwest of the island where we will take the boat. This suggestive environmental and historical place, the wild and uncontaminated nature of one of the major Sardinian islands will amaze you in every way. Rounded hills cloaked in Mediterranean green, local breeds such as the white donkey, and the thousand colours of the sea and its teeming sea bed. Asinara's natural heritage, which stretches over 50 square kilometres within the territory of Porto Torres, was designated a national park in 1997 and protected marine area in 2002. The island's extraordinary history, separated from the mainland by Piana island and the road through Fornelli, has kept it intact.Visiting a small village inhabited by fishermen up to 1885 where a former prison has become a hostel, Asinara remained isolated for more than a century, and even more so when the maximum security prison was built in 1975 for Red Brigade members, kidnappers and mafia bosses such as Raffaele Cutolo and Totò Riina. Be ready for a Jeep Tour of about 6 hours to visit the whole island. We will have the opportunity to swim in an incredibly crystalline water, relax an enjoy your snack. Your local guide will be keen to make the tour as personal as possible. He will assist you with his expertise and recall interesting anecdotes for you before leaving the island.
