  • We made a hike from Genna Silana (road SS125) in mid-June, arriving by car from Cala Gonone. There's a parking lot (free of charge) but if it's full you can still park your car along the road. The pat...  more »
  • We visited gola gorropu in september, amazing! We parked the car in the closest parking lot for a small fee. Then it was a 1.5h beautiful hike to the gorge. The gorge itself was amazing - it does invo...  more »
  • The walk in is nothing special, just a path that hugs the mountainside but it's worth the effort. On arrival there's a short safety briefing then you're let loose in the canyon. The first part is code...  more »

  • A muag see place! Amazing canion, yet quite difficult to reach but definately worth the effort!
  • An amazing experience. The view along the wall down is breathtaking, the visit in the canyon is exacting, I could spend hours inside admiring the spectacular nature artwork! Clearly the walk is not so easy and if you would line to walk along all path, you really need hiking shoes. Even in summer is advisable to bring something warm because inside the canyon the temperature is fresh.
  • It is a very unique place which you wouldn't really expect in Sardinia. I find the best option to choose the longer "beautiful " track to arrive to the canyon and then after visiting it to book a jeep to get back up. You still need to walk for about 45 minutes to reach a jeep parking spot but the track is easy and easily found. The entrance to the canyon is 5€ , the jeep ride 15€. I wouldn't underestimate the recommendations of proper shoes.
  • Fantastic place to visit, beautiful rock formations. Climbs of various levels of difficulty, from leisurly to expert as you proceed ahead.
  • Amazing 4km hike down to the canyon (approximately 2 hours if you stop to look at the goats along the trail). Beautiful landscape, breathtaking panoramas, but don't be fooled by what the guides say about the hike : it's not a very easy one ! Also if you're too tired to walk back up to the road, you can take a Jeep that will drive you all the way up. For that you will still have to walk 3 km to reach the point where the jeep waits for you. The jeep ride is one of the scariest moments I ever experienced. They call it a road but it's not even a dirt track, and most of the time you're 20 cm away for a certain death by falling into a ravine. At the end I didn't know if I should congratulate or yell at the driver. Be ready !
