The spectacle of the natural landscape combined with its historical and cultural heritage make Asinara truly unique: the presence of native plant species and animals, such as completely wild mouflons, unique albino donkeys, its geomorphological features, ancient pastures and vineyards where the interaction between man and the environment are clear to see, the little coves and long beaches on the eastern coast and the historic scenery with ancient watch towers, the ruins of an old castle, the houses of the ancient inhabitants, the remnants of the many agricultural penal colonies that were active until the end of the 1800s, the maximum security prison, now decommissioned, which was home to Mafia members and Red Brigade terrorists, the former maritime quarantine station and the stunning lighthouse of Punta Scorno to the north.

After the maximum security prison was closed once and for all, Asinara National Park and Marine Protected Area was established due to the unique nature of the environment. It is all down to this that the resources found here can be protected, promoted and conserved.

The establishment of the Park allowed for the island to be used sustainably and for many activities to take place within it.
Specifically, our trips are centred around absolute respect for the places we visit and our goal is take you on the search for new discoveries, to share an experience and to help you uncover the new sources of inspiration and emotions that the island is able to offer.
