CODULA FUILI

Trekking and Canyoning

‘Codula Fuili’ is the name given to the deep karst canyon located in the Supramonte, more precisely in the historical region of Ogliastra. The terminal part of the canyon ends directly in the sea with the beautiful beach of Cala Fuili. The Codula (name in Sardinian referred to the canyons and steep valleys) is a dry canyon where now the water continues its course underground in the vast cave system of the Supramonte. ‘Codula Fuili’ is the name given to the deep karst canyon located in the Supramonte, more precisely in the historical region of Ogliastra. The terminal part of the canyon ends directly in the sea with the beautiful beach of Cala Fuili.

To reach the canyon access first we will park the car in Cala Fuili. The beach is easily reachable by taking a paved road from the town of Cala Gonone, is possible to park the car 50 meters far from Cala Fuili (see on google maps). From here begins the ascent of the south wall of the canyon, taking the path that leads to Cala Luna and then turning right at a fork. Now the path faces a steep and very panoramic slope that gives us a view of Cala Gonone and the Gulf of Orosei. The trail arrives in about 45 minutes to the Ovile of Toddeitto. This ancient house of shepherds has been restored and thus can be used by hikers as a night shelter.

From the sheepfold of Toddeitto begins a slight descent that leads us in a few minutes to cross the bed of Codula. Step by step the gorge of Fuili becomes ever narrower and the high walls become closer to us. The sun is hard to penetrate and the landscape around us becomes more and more wild and evocative. So we arrive at the first easy rappel of about 20 meters. Then we will walk through the Canyon, walking among imposing boulders and gigantic oaks that dominate the river bad.

Reached the second rappel it takes us into the heart of the Codula. This is the most spectacular we will have the sensation to sink into the heart of the earth for 22 meters. Not far from it we have the third and last rappel that leads us to the exit of the Codula. Here we will walk in a huge forest of Oleanders that will be in bloom in spring. Approaching the beach we will certainly see a lot of climbing walls, the whole Codula Fuili is also a paradise for climbers. Our adventure has a duration of just over half a day and ends in the wonderful beach of Fuili. Here we can enjoy a well deserved rest and to take a bath. Codula Fuili canyoning is ideal for beginners who want to explore this wonderful piece of Supramonte!
