We visited gola gorropu in september, amazing! We parked the car in the closest parking lot for a small fee. Then it was a 1.5h beautiful hike to the gorge. The gorge itself was amazing - it does involve more bouldering than walking though! The...More

The walk in is nothing special, just a path that hugs the mountainside but it's worth the effort. On arrival there's a short safety briefing then you're let loose in the canyon. The first part is coded green with helpful blobs to help you find...More

The canyon is beautiful and the bouldering is very fun. We hiked down from the free carpark some 4km (beautiful views, recommend this rather than paying for Jeep transfer down) and then took the Jeep transfer back up (€15 each - book when you come...More

We looked like the perfect tourists arriving in the afternoon with our slippers and beach outfits for the hike... We enjoyed nevertheless a breathtaking 360 scenery. So, for the visit, it is better to arrive early in the day with good comfortable shoes and a...More

Nice walk downhill during approximately 2 hours: you can see goats and nice little houses during the walk. The canyon itself is superb. Big limestone stones everywhere. Nice wildlife in the gorge

We took the trail from just south of Dorgali. In the summer months the hike to the canyon is quite a challenge. The trail itself is quite easy, but temperatures can pose difficulties. There's two water stops along the way, but make sure to bring...More
