Canyon Rio Sass

The Rio Sass canyon is found in the heart of Fondo and has been shaped by the water, as it flows through the town. The canyon bisects this important city of the Upper Val di Non, dividing it into two separate sections. Since 2001, a thrilling - particularly for children - path is available and takes visitors on a tour of its swirling waters and waterfalls as well as to admire its Marmitte dei Giganti, fossils, stalagmites and stalactites. The path is complete with jutting platforms, staircases and ladders and features a 145 m drop, with 348 steps. Apart from the many phenomena which can be admired here - caused by the movement of the water as it shapes the rocks - special mention must also be made of the red and green algae, moss and ferns which nestle amidst its endless curves and bends.
