  • If you vacation in the Gulf of Orosei, one should necessarily hike through the Canyon Gurropu. But not in the middle of summer and the best leadership. Not suitable for beginners.

  • We chose to visit the Gorge making the descent and ascent from genna silana approximately 1.5 hours 2 hours descent and the climb do it if you are trained and fit the climb is strenuous, otherwise opt for the ascent by Jeep, the show that offers the area's wonderful glimpses of beautiful landscapes, the canyon is impressive, with wall rising from the base up to 400 meters divided into three sections, the first section marked by green spots accessible to all then, the second most challenging but feasible if trained and hiking boots, the third part only for experienced hikers and preparations, the bed of the river flumineddu ideal for cooling off and eat lunches, then off to rising up 2 hours of walking I must say challenging the difficulty of the trail but not for the gradients. Great experience, try it

  • Last week the gap. Actually, it was too hot in the middle of the heat wave "Lucifer" but all the sweat and toil. We walked through the Red route with 2 teenagers down. This tour took for us a small 2.5 hours. Some pieces are very dangerous with deep chasms and sometimes you hands and feet need to descend. Once down, you can cool off in the water of the (in summer underground) river that in some places back above the ground. Entrance gap is 5 euro per person, there is an informative intro. The first part of the gap is reasonable to do so, often with hands and feet scrambling. In the first section you can also find the narrowest part of the Gorge, about 5 meters. Beautiful high cliffs of about 500 metres on either side. It is quiet as a mouse, delicious! The second part is very tricky to do and the third part is only to do with guide and climbing materials. We have chosen for the trip up to 15 euros pp to pay and instead of 4.5 km 3 km to climb where a jeep waiting for us. This brought us back to the parking lot where we started the route. The jeep ride over a tortuous sand mountain road, quite exciting with steep cliffs right next to you. This was so again a whole experience. Take on warm days, 1.5 litres of water per person. Downstairs is a water source present where you can fill your bottles again, this is also really need!

  • Not wel known but we were astounded by the size and beauty of the canyon. Welk worth the 1h hike (was with baby on our back during a hot day) from the car parking.
  • Nice place spectacular gorge walk. The walk down from selina is very strenuous, there is mention on a 4x4 back up but this only operates with a minimum of 6 people
  • Must visit in Sardegna. Just prepare good boots for walking down!
  • Brilliant - the canyon is worth every bead of sweat and every aching muscle. Awesome beauty on an island that has so many, unspoilt natural wonders. Gorropu was recommended by a local, and it was the icing on the cake of our trip. After 15 days of beaches, each more spectacular than the last, this inland break, trekking downhill to a pretty much undiscovered paradise, was great. The wardens are really informative.
