TREKKING

Supramonte – Gorroppu Gorges

BOOK NOW

The Gorroppu Gorge is a deep canyon in Supramonte and marks the border between the municipalities of Orgosolo, Dorgali and Urzulei. Considered one of the deepest canyons in Europe, it was formed following the millenary erosive action of the Rio Flumineddu.

Inside the gorge you can come across endemic plant forms such as the columbine of Gorroppu, also called columbine nuragic.

The trekking starts from the base camp of Gorroppu and after a panoramic route of about 5 km you reach the Rio Flumineddu. From here we continue towards the gorge in which there is a simple but suggestive trekking in a landscape sometimes lunar and sometimes surrounded by Mediterranean scrub or oleander groves.

 Difficulty level : medium-difficult

Supramonte of Oliena-Dorgali – Tiscali Mount

BOOK NOW

Monte Tiscali is located on the border between the Supramonte di Oliena and the Supramonte di Dorgali.

The itinerary develops among woods, juniper stairs, bottlenecks and cart tracks to reach the imposing dolina inside which it is possible to visit the ruins of the homonymous Nuragic Village.

There is also the possibility of a guided visit to the Archaeological site “Sos Carros”.

At the end of the trek there is a trip to the famous resurgence of Su Gologone, the most important karst spring in Sardinia.

Level of difficulty : medium

Badde Pentumas – Lanaitto Valley (Oliena)

BOOK NOW

Badde Pentumas is located inside the calcareous massif of the Supramonte di Oliena: a fascinating and wild gorge second as importance to the Gorroppu gorges.  The approach takes about 2 and a half hours of trekking on limestone foils within a fascinating and primitive landscape. Then you reach the Sovana valley from where the descent along the Pentumas Gorge begins, a descent that includes 13 exciting rope passages inside majestic amphitheatres.

Level of Difficulty: Medium

Nieddu Mount

The massif of Monte Nieddu rises behind San Teodoro, an impervious and wild place that offers suggestive views of the coast.

Several itineraries are proposed with different levels of difficulty and duration:

1) “Lu Casteddacciu”

BOOK NOW

Departure from Stazzu Pitrisconi. The path attacks with a demanding climb and then leads us to a saddle that separates the coastal area of San Teodoro and the hinterland of Padru.

The view here is majestic, the path is always open and dominates the valley.

Encounters with wild goats are frequent in the last stretch where the rocky walls are flanked. Before facing the descent we often take a break under the large holm oak tree to enjoy the view. The descent begins gently along the crest of the mountain and takes us back to the cart track that leads to the Stazzu Pitrisconi.

 Level: medium difficult.

2) “Lu Turrione”

BOOK NOW

Leaving the car near the Vedetta we take a path through the Mediterranean maquis that leads us to the “Turrione”, a tooth of rock on top of which a flag stands out.

The panorama dominates the whole coast. The rocks at the base of the “Turrione” appear deep red or white because of the presence of a small plant that covers them.

Among the cracks of the “tower” grow holm oaks that seem to cling to the rock in a precarious balance.

The return towards the base takes place along a cartroad (country road).

 Level: easy.

3) “The Waterfalls”

BOOK NOW

Departure from Stazzu Pitrisconi. The route, in a loop, takes place halfway between the two sides of the valley of the rio Pitrisconi.

From this dominant position it is possible to observe the bed of the stream, its “water jumps” and the various small lakes. About halfway along the way you go down and cross the stream to face the return partly uphill and among the bizarrely shaped rocks (“Casa delle Fate”).

Return to the “STAZZU” for a rest and refreshment.

Possibility to bathe in the “puddles”.

Trekking 4h, medium.

Cala Luna

BOOK NOW

Cala Luna is one of the most famous beaches of the Gulf of Orosei, a tongue of white sand with limestone cliffs and caves behind it.

The route starts from Buchi Arta, crosses the holm oak wood, runs along Scala S’Arga and enters the garden of oleanders (from the mouth of the river that leads) to the beach.

It is possible to return by sea with the shuttle service to Cala Gonone.

Full Day (3h trekking, medium – difficult).

Cala Fuili – (Gulf of Orosei)

BOOK NOW

Cala Fuili is located a few kilometres from Cala Gonone. The ring-shaped route takes about 2 hours along a path, partly shaded by junipers over a hundred years old, which offers suggestive views of the beautiful coast of the Gulf of Orosei. Once the codula is intersected, the descent begins in a wild environment where the rocky boulders alternate with patches of typical vegetation. The route includes 4 simple but exciting abseils that lead to an intricate forest of oleander prelude to the famous beach of Cala Fuili. Here the excursion ends, season permitting, with a refreshing swim in the clear waters of Cala Fuili.

 Also suitable for beginners.

Selvaggio Blu

BOOK NOW

This is how the Selvaggio Blu is defined, a reductive and almost banal statement that does not do justice to this adventure that develops along the wildest, most inaccessible and wonderful part of Sardinia.

The Selvaggio Blu takes the form of five days (it is possible to choose even the most demanding four-day variant) of challenging trekking in the heart of Ogliastra… along a path that is lost in space and time with a story all its own.

There is sweating, there is climbing and abseiling with harnesses and helmets that promise breathtaking views and keep us safe at the same time. It is called trekking, but forget about walking on well-marked paths, the Selvaggio will force us in several places to walk on the stony and sharp limestone rocks typical of the Supramonte.

In our wonderful journey we will have the privilege to meet and listen to a concert of wonders around us: dream beaches, a cobalt blue sea, imposing cliffs, twisted junipers, spectacular garfish, hidden fjords but above all a state of nature that is preserved in its primordial state.
