Description

A journey to the wild heart of Gallura on an exceptional mode of transport: the Little Green Train or Trenino Verde.



What we will see
  • Arzachena
  • Tempio Pausania
  • Little Green Train
  • Carasau bread tasting and other specialities


What we will do
  • An excursion that gives us the chance to explore the heart of Gallura in an unusual way: the distinctive Little Green Train will take us to the centre of this wild and primitive region, where its distance from the sea has meant that its inhabitants' lifestyle and its nature have remained the same throughout the centuries.
  • From Olbia, our coach will take us to Arzachena, where a typical train with a wooden interior awaits us, booked especially for our excursion. It sets off on an adventurous itinerary through lush valleys, granite rocks hollowed out and shaped by the wind and limestones walls: an extraordinary natural sight!
  • We will head down to the station at Tempio Pausania, a Liberty-style gem nestled in a charming town, and then we will set off on a walk through the streets of the town centre.
  • Before it is time to get back on the coach that will take us back to Olbia, there is time for an energy boost and a tasting session of some of the typical local specialities such as carasau bread, spicy cheese and the local wine.

What you need to know
  • The train carriage is made of wood, it is fitted with wooden seats and there is no air conditioning
  • We recommend that you book early because only a limited number of places are available
