Enjoy your lunch in the Orgosolo forest


We start the tour with the Ispingoli cave near the town of Dorgali. The cave is dominated by an enormous 38-meter high limestone column, one of the tallest stalactite-stalagmite examples in Europe. In the past, it was known as the Virgins' Abyss, a name with haunting significance: archeological research has discovered that the site was probably used by the Phoenician as a sacrificial well.

We will go to the Valley of Lanaittu, an enchanting 7 km valley, characterized by towering limestone mountains, cliffs, and caves scattered with natural and archeological wonders.
Finally, we will go to the Orgosolo Supramonte, where we will enjoy tasty, typical Sardinian open-air cooking, among the ancient holm-oaks. This special lunch with the shepherds will enable you to discover the genuine flavours of this ancient land, enhanced by the full-bodied local wine, Cannonau - strong in both colour and taste. On the way back we will visit the centre of Orgosolo with its famous murals.

Itinerary

From the Olbia area, we'll reach the Barbagia in about one hour with the car.
After the first stop for a coffee in a gas station near Dorgali, we will visit, if the people wish to do it, the chasm of Ispingoli. If not, we'll go to Monte Ortobene, the sacred mountain of Nuoro, to see in its top, the bronze statue of the Redentore.
Then, we will visit a cavern still used as a house by the shepherds.
Lunch with the shepherds in the supramonte and visit to Orgosolo and its mural paintings.
