If you prefer to take a direct taxi from Olbia airport to Golfo Aranci, remember to negotiate the price before departure (approx. 50 Euros). You can also contact the BDRI one day in advance to arrange the taxi to drive you from the airport directly to the centre (the Golfo Aranci taxi company offers our participants a price of 35 Euros instead 50 Euros for this trip). The taxi driver will be waiting for you in the airport, holding the BDRI logo.
The BDRI research field station is sited in the same road as the post office in the centre of Golfo Aranci (Via Armando Diaz 4).
For those who want to travel by airplane we suggest the following itinerary:
