Fondo, a beautiful village of the Val di Non, hides an incomparable natural beauty under its territory: a Canyon which literally cuts the village in two parts.
Since 2001, the Canyon RIO SASS has been accessible through walkways and iron ladders that allow the tourist to enjoy the extraordinary beauty and uniqueness of this environment. The path has a length of 1,200 meters and a vertical drop of 100 meters. It lasts about two hours.
The glacial erosion and the subglacial streams have shaped and marked the area that you will admire: on the walls you can see very unusual calcite formations: curtains, stalactites, stalagmites and so forth. The sun filtering through the rocks paints beautiful pictures of shadow on the walls.
The Rio Sass Canyon can be visited only with a guide who provides the tourist with protective helmet and waterproof equipment.
Booking is mandatory and the timetables will be announced at the moment of booking.
