Earth’s history up close: The Geotrail in Puflatsch offers a fascinating insight into bygone days and the 252 million years of history of the Dolomites, the UNESCO World Natural Heritage. This leisurely route leads along the northerly slope of the Puflatsch and the Panider Sattel to Pufels and back again. Amateur geologists of all ages will be in their element: traces of long-gone prehistoric creatures, segmentations of earth layers and the stratification of earth mass up to the formation of the landscape as we know it today. The route also offers breath-taking views of the surrounding Dolomite panorama and the Gröden Valley. Visitors can learn about the fascinating development of the Dolomites from the information boards along the way and follow the spirit of exploration themselves.

Turn-by-turn directions

The walk starts at the Panider Sattel and, following the “Geotrail” signposts, leads along the old municipal road to Pufels and back again. The first stretch, along trail no. 3A and across vast meadows, takes you to the woods below the Puflatsch. A new link road then leads you downhill to the old, abandoned road to Pufels. The pleasant walk to Pufels is nice and easy, and is also suitable for young children. From Pufels, the geotrail leads up to Zaramin and back to the point of departure at the Panider Sattel.
