Project Description

Gorroppu Canyon

Departure from the Silana pass, 1,050 m above the sea-level, descent along an easily accessible to the gorge’s entrance.

Going on walking inside the canyon is a little bit tiring, as there is no real path. In the hottest months, it is recommended to make the excursion leaving in the early morning.

Distance from the hotel: 20 km
Duration trek: 5h.
Total duration: 6h.
Difficulty level: low
Effort: medium-low

You reach the Cala Gonone tunnel and bike along the national road 125 for 1 km, to start then a long descent of about 6 km to the luxuriant Oddoene valley. After 5 more kilometres of easy gradients you reach S’Abba Arva bridge.

The path then turns into a rather uneven dug up path, full of surprises for mountain bike enthusiasts.
The gorge’s mouth, which can be visited only walking after leaving the bikes at its entrance, is then reached.

With one-hour trekking you walk through the whole gorge and then you can reach the hotel by another route through the Oddoene valley.
