  • Several routes are available, we chose one of Ghenna silana whose course is carried out through the mountain, to perform a market about 1:30 to go in / 2 h back. With a significant elevation. The landscapes are wild. You will meet on your way goats, fig trees and maquis. on arrival you will find natural sources in which you can refresh and quench your thirst. Then, with 5th, you can visit the canyon. These gorges are then open to you, thus revealing huge rock walls. The return can be done either by jeep (1 h of market and 15th per person) or by the same path. Be careful, you need to take into account the difficulty of the return by the elevation important uphill as well as fatigue accumulated during the go. In summary, we conducted five hours of hiking, through very beautiful landscapes and saw the canyon which remains one of the most beautiful natural to visit Sardinia site. To your market, ready, put on!

  • We were initially a little hesitant, considering the heat in July, but does not regret that we made this adventure. We are a family of two adults and three children, 9, 13 and 15. Reasonably well trained, and the kids are used to go a long way, which is a prerequisite. Regular running shoes works. Don't underestimate the warmth! We took almost 3 liters/person, and it went in. We started at Genna Silana. It took about 1.5 hours to go down. Beautifully! Pretty simple but a bit uneven and difficult in places. The Gorge was fantastic! We went green led and a little bit of the yellow. After we bathed the feet in the source water and ate our packed fruit o bread. We chose to take the jeep back. Then you had to first go about an hour along the river bed and then ride a breathtaking jeep ride up. It stopped first at the basecamp, but if you have the car at Genna Silana so they run on there without additional cost. The whole trip took about 5 hours. Good with coffee ice cream at the Café before you go on. The whole family thought this was great!

  • This is a great hike with wonderful views. But if you are doing it in July/ August be prepared for the heat. Leave early and pack enough food/ water for the return hike. It reached 44 degrees during o...  more »

  • 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.
