Although not particularly difficult, this itinerary explores some of the most remote and iconic landmarks in Sardinia. From the archaeological site of Nuraghe Mereu and Nuraghe Gorroppu to the bottom of the marvellous Sa Giuntura, you will witness impressive views over deep canyons and the imposing mountains all around.
We will drive our 4WD to the start of the path, starting our walk into the thick forests that cross the canyon Flumineddu to the Nuraghe Mereu. A part from the usual cows, pigs and goats, many wild animals inhabit these mountains, such as Golden Eagles, Mouflons, Boars, Foxes, Weasels and many more.
After visiting both Nuraghes we will descend to the joining of two rivers and their respective canyons, what is known as Sa Giuntura (trans. The Joint). The impetuous floods merge here and form the enormous canyon Gorroppu, one of the largest in Europe.
On the way back we may visit Pischina Urthaddala, an incredibly large pool created by one of the canyons.
