«Bios» means life and «Topos» means place in ancient Greek… “Biotopo” therefore is a place full of life! The trail takes to the biotope of Ecken, a damp place unique in Trentino. Here it is possible to see the mountain chicken or giant ditch frog or the rare king quail. A dirt road will take you in a wild forest of fir trees. Then, the Sanctuary of the Madonna delle Grazie, the shrine of the Our Lady of Grace, the patron of the skiers of Italy. It is a holy location and quietness is much appreciated.
