The Dolomites

Everyone has heard of them. From movies, photographs, and stories. Many have attempted to describe them and to capture their atmosphere – with words, and in pictures. But the magic you feel when you stand on them, hike through them, or when you stare in awe at them, can only be experienced in person.

The Dolomites, this world-famous range of mountains also known as the “Monti Pallidi” (the “Pale Mountains”) in Italian, extend over five Italian provinces: South Tyrol, Trentino, Belluno, Udine, and Pordenone. They are also home to five nature parks.

GEOPARC Bletterbach

It was included in the list of because of its special beauty and geological importance. A mysterious and impressive experience in the Unterland of South Tyrol that simply mustn’t be missed!

The Bletterbach Gorge is a canyon carved out of the western flank of the Weisshorn/Corno Bianco over the course of millennia. It has a length of about 8 km and a depth of up to 400 meters and belongs to the communities of Aldein/Aldino and Radein/Redagno. It features not only fascinating rock formations – like the wild “Butterloch,” rocky basin with a whirlpool – but also geological strata allowing you to trace Earth’s history back millions of years.
