Sulcus, or in the plural Sulci, means grooves and furrows in Latin and is thus probably the eponym for this mountain landscape, which is characterised by narrow valleys, gorges, cuts and deep ravines
Secret paths cross this stunning nature with rich flora and fauna, wild and untouched. The Sulcis is one of only a handful of places where today you can still find Sardinian deer.
On former charcoal burners' paths, the route leads through largely untouched nature to imposing rock formations, gorges with steep rock faces over 100 m high, waterfalls or beautiful vantage points.
This beaitiful landscape shows us a different side each season: a sea of yellow in spring, thanks to blossoming mimosas and gorse, after that the light pink of the rock roses shines through, white tree heath or purple lavender also, accompanied by bubbling streams and small waterfalls.
From june onwards, the water almost completely vanishes and a sea of pink oleander blossoms appears in the riverbeds, as far as the eye can see.
In summer it gets too hot to walk and the plants retreat. The green tones of the forests remain, with old cork and oak trees, juniper and olive trees. Short hikes can only be made in the early hours of the morning or in the shade high up on the peaks.
In autumn after the first rains, nature recovers quickly and green up again. From november, the bright yellow, orange and red fruits of the Corbezzolo bring colour into the woods.
During winter, after the first rains, comes new green, with clover with yellow blossoms, rosemary, cyclamen or asphodel.
The commanding rock formations, gorges with rock walls of up to 1000 m height and the stunning panoramic views are a treat all year round.
