The first stage of the Geotrail climbs up from the Bletterbach gorge to the summit of the Weisshorn. We pass through stunning scenery that reveals various layers of rock with the oldest at the bottom, the most recent at the very top. Like a book, these layers tell a story – a story that has lasted 40 million years, with the transformation of the Dolomites of the time from a landmass into a sea.
Getting to the GEOPARC Bletterbach is possible by public bus line or by car.
