After several days on the beach, we were looking for a change of pace and found Gola di Gorropu. With several options to hike the gorge, we decided to drive to the base camp -- only 30 minutes from Cala Gonone -- and were really glad that we did. The staff at base camp was super helpful in explaining the several routes and trails to see the gorge as well as other nearby trails.

We opted for the jeep + hike option. While we love a tough hike, our littlest one (age 7) wasn't up for a longer hike. This 3-ish hour hike starts with a bouncy ride in an rugged old Range Rover across the valley rim and down a track that might feel a little harrowing to anyone who is afraid of heights.

From the drop off point, you hike about 2 miles to the gorge itself. The gorge is staffed with a small team that will provide the basics of the park and helmets if so inclined.

Our kids loved scaling the rocks and running through the open areas of the gorge.

Then afterwards we spent an hour cooling off in the nearby freshwater pools. We did this in August so it was super hot, but we loved the experience and the combo of the beautiful views, challenging hike and refreshing pools makes this hike one we won't soon forget.

Do not forget to wear appropriate hiking shoes/boots with good tread, bring water (more than you think you'll need), and wear a swimsuit if you think you'll take a dip.

I strongly suggest reaching the Canyon through the route "Gorroppu Hiking Trail". In practice, from Dorgali village, you will take the SS125 road in the direction of Baunei-Urzulei villages, then, after passing the crossroads for "Cala Gonone", you will turn right following the tourist signs that lead to "Sant'Elene" hill. You will reach a crossroads, turn right and proceed for about 10 km before reaching the "S'Abba Arva" bridge, where it is possible to park both for free (immediately after the bridge) and for a fee (guarded). From there you can take the beautiful path that runs along the Flumineddu River for less than two hours until you reach the entrance to the "Gola di Gorropu." The difficulty level of this hike is considered easy.
Please avoid the route from Genna Silana or Ghenna Silana since it is extremely expensive and a dangerous trial. It is suggested to avoid reaching the Canyon through this path since several important accidents happen in the last few years, involving expert hikers too.

Parked the car at bar Silana, where there is free parking space. We started our walk at 9.30 in the morning and it took us 90 minutes to get to the entrance of the canyon. It was going to be a warm day with max. temp of 35 degree. We are 55+. The walk is good fun, make sure to wear sneakers or hiking shoes and bring enough water and some food. The entrance fee into the canyon is 5 euro to pay cash. If you want to return by Jeep book this here as well.
After payment there is a short instruction and then you can go in your own pace. The canyon has three levels of difficulties, it starts with green, already challenging but doable, then it turns into yellow, more use of hand and feet but still double, red is for experts only and only with a guide. We did green and yellow and this was good fun.
You have to go the same path back to exit the canyon.
We took the Jeep back, before you can go with the Jeep you walk for 45 minute walk, on the opposite site of where you enter the canyon, the return path starts steep then it turns into a wider path which goes up and down and there is some shade during the walk. You will see a sign jeep pick up indicating to go right, then you have to cross a river and you will end in a small parking where the jeep will pick you up between 60 and 90 minutes after you started your return. We had to wait a little for the jeep to arrive ( 9 persons fit in one jeep), there are some stones to sit on in the shade while waiting, the rid back is bumpy and takes 15 to 20 minutes, at the top you pay with card, and you can buy well deserved drinks. A minivan brings you back to the bar Silana.

We arrived back at our car around 15.00.

Exciting challenging walk with an amazing view, ending at the beautifull canyon. Totally worth a visit, make sure to make enough time free for the visit.

This is a wonderful day out. We took the 'easy' option (mainly because of the extreme heat - 30 degrees +) which meant being driven for half an hour down into the valley by Landrover, walking about 3 kms along an undulating path to the start of the gorge then going into the gorge itself (we went about 500m but you can go further) then back along the 3km path for the landrover pick-up. This all still took about four hours. The gorge is stunning, the path pleasant and the Landrover drives fun. and quite dramatic. The only irritation was that the pick-up arrangements meant that we had to wait about 20 mins for some slower walkers to catch up - this would have been OK except that we had no idea how much longer they would take and the heat was blistering - hence four stars rather than five.

On your way to this location you will drive on an impressive route thru the Sardinia mountains. The place itself offers stunning views and great hiking possibilities. For us it sadly was to complicated to fit it in a vacation with a baby and four year old. But we loved the trip to Goka di Gorupo anyway!

We spent a day with Filippo from the Chìntula-Gorropu.info group. He took us by jeep down to the valley from which we reached by foot the gorge of Gorropu. The visit itself (4 hours by foot in all, we took a lighter version) was wonderful - the gorge is exceptionnel and the way leading to it is a great walk. Filippo was a wonderful guide: just the right amount of info, on the topics that were of interest to us. We also discussed Sardinia and more general issues which was an eyeopener. Most important, he is a very pleasent person to spend a day with!

The price was more than reasonable and a wonderful time was had by all.

We asked several people before starting on 27.09.2021 before 15:00 how long it took, the rather consistent answer was 4 hours: 1 down, 1 in the canyon, and 2 back. According to the info billboard at the parking,one could enter the canyon till 17:00. So, at 4,5 hours before sunset we started.
However, we were at the canyon entrance at 16:10, and the lady selling tickets said that at this time we could only enter "for a quick look". (Our understanding was 10-15 minutes). Of course, the tickets were still sold, at full price. We decided not to enter for such a sort time, and left disappointed.

Advice: in season do not start after 14:00, and in off-season probably 13:00.

I give one star for the views on part of the trail down/up.

It is really worth it! We took a tour with Campo Base Gorropu. We paid 25 EUR for a jeep drive down to the canyon. Then you take a 3km easy walk to the canyon. The canyon has 5 EUR entry. The canoyn is devided into 3 parts, the easiest / medium and hard one. The hard one is only for professional use. The other two are OK to climb but I really recommend enough water and hard shoes, as you have to climb over really slippery stones. When you go back from the canyon, you can visit little "pools", walk the 3km road back and the jeep gets you back to the top. A really nice experience !! See pics.
