The largest canyon of South Tyrol consists of a range of rock layers. A great flora as well as numerous fossilisations make a hike across this canyon a real adventure.

Likewise fascinating are also the ice holes, spring valley, lake Favogna and many more places. Just take a look at the articles below, the one or other might be an incentive.
