The most spectacular canyon in Europe is in Sardinia

The greatest canyon in Europe

Nature has donated many of his masterpieces to the island of Sardinia, among these is the Gola di Gorropu, a canyon in Supramonte area which is 500 meters deep and about 1.5 kilometers long. The gorge is located on the border between the municipalities of Orgosolo and Urzulei and worth a visit because it is a unique sight in Europe: a canyon that narrows at the bottom (in some places the width is 4-5 meters) located in a rugged territory, reachable by hiking trails.

Guided tours to explore the canyon are available, so it is a recommended destination especially for those who love trekking and aren’t afraid by long paths: at the arrival the view of Gorropu is a great reward all the efforts.
