Hotel Gorropu is situated in a vast limestone plateau where you can rediscover lost feelings.
Sounds, noises, smells, and unique colours around a strip of land in central and eastern Sardinia, extending from the slopes of The Gennargentu to the Gulf of Orosei, whose mountains include the municipalities of Oliena, Orgosolo, Dorgali, Urzulei and Baunei.
This mountain range offers lovely scenery, marked by deep canyons and wild gorges that extend up to the sea.
The environment is characterised by luxuriant vegetation where you can find countless endemic floral and shrubby species, spectacular junipers and densely populated forests of holm oaks.
This area is home to mouflons, wild boar, dormice, foxes, martens and eagles.
The small human presence is well-integrated into the landscape, proven by the wooden huts, typical traditional buildings used as shepherds’ houses and their fences that housed livestock (usually goats).
An interesting spectacle is the evidence of the prehistoric people: nuraghi (tower-fortresses) and villages, the tombs of giants and caves used as real dwellings. Nowadays, this rugged and wild area is rediscovering itself, becoming more and more cherished and promoting a new form of tourism.
Below are 5 hiking routes among the many accessible, all starting and returning to Ghenn’e Silana, crossing over the highest point of the S.S. (state highway) 125 Orientale Sarda, considered the heart of the 5 Supramonte mountains.
