Destination: Rio Sass Canyon

Three hundred meters long and 60 meters deep; with overhanging walls separated by as little as 25 centimeters, or a maximum of 30 meters; 600 steps, to complete a 1,200-meter itinerary in about two hours: the Rio Sass Canyon – dug by the iron-rich Val di Non spring – is a natural beauty.

Nearby, you can explore an area of Trentino dominated by the Brenta Dolomites, and perhaps visit the Sanctuary of Saint Romedius or Lake Tovel.

The itinerary is dotted with rocks, small waterfalls, stalactites and stalagmites, fossils, algae, giant’s kettles, an 18th-century dam, thermal baths that were built in the 19th century and were used until the 1950s…

The best time of the year to visit the canyon is between April and November. Don’t miss it!
