  • Explore the hidden territory of Sardinia's mountains
  • Hike through Italy's deepest canyon
Full description
Meet your guide in Orosei or Dorgali before starting the adventure with some off-road driving to descend into the valley where the trek path begins. The hike starts with some water wading through the Flumineddu river to enter the woodland area formed of Old Oaks, Arbutus and Mediterranean shrubs. Walk along the cliffs of Monte Oddeu and arrive at the entrance to the Gorroppu gorge in less than 2 hours. Admire the incredible rocky walls which rise for more than 400 meters over the dry river bed, making this gorge one of the deepest canyons in Europe. Today the canyon is a natural border between the Italian territories of Urzulei and Orgosolo. The canyon was formed when the Flumineddu river excavated the Jurassic limestone that formed when Sardinia was covered by the sea. Learn from your guide how the marine rocks are full of fossils from ammonites, fish and algae found in the area, and hopefully catch a glimpse of such an artifact. During the trek, discover the unique micro climate of the canyon that allowed the giant growth of the trees including the Phyllirea and the Old Yew. As you continue on the hike, the path becomes harder and harder, you may have to use your hands to proceed through the boulders. When it is no longer possible to go further, it’s time to head back.

Melina did an amazing job coordinating, taking care of the transfer and explaining the different plants on the way the canyon to us. We hiked for 5 hours and never felt bored - the views are amazing! Total recommendation!

It was an amazing tour! Our guide Simone was super nice and shared a lot of interesting stories and history abort Sardinea. The trek was great and the sights were just awesome. We strongly recommend this tour and you do not need to be experienced in hiking - Simone adjusted the tour so it fit us all.
