On the new adventure trail, visitors can expect spectacular impressions directly on the glacier and lots of knowledge about this natural wonder. With the help of a leporello, the change of the glacier and the visible changes in the sensitive Alpine region are explained. The Glacier Experience Trail is a supplement to the theoretically imparted knowledge in the visitor centre at the Diavolezza valley station.

Safety information

White-red-white marked mountain hiking trail, which partly opens up impassable terrain and is mainly steep, narrow and partly exposed. Particularly difficult passages are secured with ropes or chains. Users must be sure-footed and in good physical condition, and must know the dangers in the mountains (falling rocks, danger of slipping and falling, weather conditions).
