Gola Su Gorropu
Often referred to as "Europe's Grand Canyon", the Gola Su Gorropu is a confined and sensational ravine, best reached by walking from the Genna 'e Silana pass on course SS125.
The 10.5 km trail strings past starkly weathered limestone inclines, rock apexes and bluffs blemished with caverns. Contorted holm oaks provides cool resort on hot days, however the scene is crude and uncompromising. As you plummet, the view airs out to uncover the passageway to the crevasse.
The gorge has 400m-high dividers of limestone, which shut out the sun and hushes the world outside. Take after the cairns for some simple bouncing over the stones that encompass the crevasse.
Possible even with children in tow, this tender, two hour, 7.5 km round-outing trek takes you to the flawless inlets of Cala Goloritze, settled in the southern end of the Golfo di Orosei. The trailhead is the exotic Golgo plateau, where wild goats, pigs and jackasses roam.
As you approach the inlet, you will get captivating views of the sparkling ocean and of limestone bluffs set with caverns. Steps lead down to Cala Goloritze, an immaculate half-moon cove with ice white stones whipped by an ocean that experiences all possible shades and hues of blue, from sea green to cobalt. Strange limestone developments take off far from the precipices, including Monte Caroddi or Aguglia, a 148m-high finger of rock that is a reference point to climbers.
