Get back to nature as you explore the Gorropu canyon with a local guide on this walking tour with pickup from Orosei or Dorgali. Be surrounded as you walk by 500 meters of high rocky walls in a secret location full of streams, lakes, huge boulders, small caves, rare animals, and flowers. Enjoy the convenience of being picked up from your accommodation in Orosei or Dorgali in a comfortable Land Rover. Stop at a car park and begin your hike. Cross the Flumineddu river on foot and enter a forest of straw-berry trees. Stroll under large holm oaks and through dense Mediterranean shrubs which line the walls of Mount Oddeu up to the rocky ravine's arresting entrance. Step into Gorropu Gorge and admire the majestic and steep walls of Italy's deepest canyon. Take some nature photographs as you hear small waterfalls and the chirping of swallows. Search for the purple Aquilegia Nuragica plant which is a an endemic species to the Gorropu Canyon. Keep an eye on the skies for the chance to spot g golden eagles silhouetted in pairs against Supramonte. Look for small flocks of mouflons which may be seen cavorting among the limestone rocks or high up on the ridges. Try to find rare creatures like the scurrying Speleomantes lizzards and the Sardinian Euproctus salamander. View many of the old specimens of mock privets (Phillyrea Latifolia) and yews (Taxus Baccata) buttressing the gorge's slopes. Descend deeper into the canyon and muscle your way between massive boulders. Stop for a break where you can eat the packed lunch that you brought. Double back to the car park for a comfortable return trip your pickup point.
