Positioned on the edge of a 900-metre high plateau and surrounded by dense forests, natural monuments of granite and springs, Lodine is a small town in the historic region of Barbagia di Ollolai. With just 350 inhabitants, it has been an independent municipality since 1988. The beauty of the territory is striking, being embellished by the Lago di Gusana - shared with Gavoi - whose waters turn an intense blue in the winter months, running between the Littederone and Nodu sos Arcos mountains. The artificial basin is the perfect destination for passing hours of utter relaxation, canoeing, horse riding and fishing trips (which can also be enjoyed in the Gosogoleo river). In the surrounds are holm oaks, downy oaks and Mediterranean scrub, which host rare species such as the Corsican red deer.
