As every year thousands of tourists come to this village in order to enjoy of a stunning nature, it has been specializing in environmental tourism: in fact, this area abounds in natural beauties like gorges, canyons, dolinas, swallow-holes, cliffs, chasms and unexplored caves. Everything is wrapped up by wide groves of holm-oaks and oaks, where wild animals live and unique plants grow, like the 'mountain rose' or 'peonia mascula'.

The gorge of Gorroppu, the deepest canyon in Europe, is really worth visiting: it was hollowed out by the waters of Rio Flumineddu which, in the space of a few millenniums, eroded the rocks, shaping 500 metres high walls. While visiting this natural heritage, you will be surprised by the contrast between the green of the holm-oaks and the white of the rocks of karstic origins. In the Supramonte plateau it is possible to go on mountain hikes, cycle rides, horse rides or on cross-country races; beyond enjoying a total immersion in the environment, you will be able to see staggering nuraghic villages. Among these, we recommend  'Os Murales', a complex placed on the brink of a precipice ending on the 'Codula Elune', while in S’Arena there are megalithic structures called tombs of giants.

The rennet of goat, which has been transformed nowadays into an excellent cheese, is the most typical product of Urzulei, along with the bitter honey made with strawberry trees flowers. Beyond the famous hams and roasts of pork or goat, a local dish is macarrones imboddiaus, spaghetti served with abundant melted cheese.
