The GEOTour Bletterbach – End of the Valley starts at the Visitor Centre GEOPARC Bletterbach in Aldino. On our way down the canyon we pass two fascinating viewpoints with an outlook over the lower part of the Bletterbach canyon. We go up the valley, passing by the so called “Floscherbründl” (fountain), until we reach the head of the valley called “Gorz”. At the Corno Bianco le canyon opens up like an amphitheatre and gives a view of the Permian–Triassic extinction event which happened 250 million years ago.

We start at the Visitor Centre GEOPARC Bletterbach in Aldino and follow the forest road to the “Floscherbründl”. Here we take the trail no. 4 and go down the canyon. Then we go up towards the “Gorz” (Head of the canoyon).
