The Val di Non is full of narrow, very suggestive canyons. Let's see them together ...
The Rio Sass Canyon is one of the two canyons of the Val di Non made accessible thanks to cantilevered walkways and stairways. Together with expert guides, do not miss the opportunity to immerse yourself in the heart of the Val di Non rock.
Starting from the village square of Fondo, an expert guide will accompany you, wearing a helmet and cape, into the narrow tunnels of this spectacular gorge created by the "Rio Sass" stream between crystal clear waterfalls, deep gorges and dark caves. You will observe spectacular phenomena created by the erosion of the rock, as well as a very rich flora made up of red and green algae, mosses and ferns.

In the Novella River Park you can walk suspended on metal walkways and let yourself be led by the emotions that only such a mysterious place can give you.
Over millions of years, the Novella stream has built a masterpiece that can now be visited thanks to an important work that allows anyone to walk, "suspended in mid-air" in the gorge, in a scenario that leaves you breathless from the emotion.
The itinerary overlooks the towns of Cloz, Dambel and Romallo.
The visit is carried out with the accompaniment of specialized operators on an itinerary that winds for about 3.5 km. Part of the route is part of a large and sunny landscape that reveals the secrets of apple cultivation and then scenarios from the American West, between formations of red and gray scales. The second part of the route takes place in the gorge itself, on metal walkways.
Guided tours by appointment from April to November. During the summer, visits are made every day at 10 am and 3 pm without the need for a reservation.

Ring in the canyon of Santa Giustina passing through the Hermitage of S. Giustina
The excursion goes into the canyon of Santa Giustina. A new bridge allows you to cross the stream and reach the suggestive 13th century hermitage.
This itinerary has as its starting point the convenient parking lot located near the Tassullo train station.
The first part of this walk descends on country roads among the apple orchards and then becomes steeper on a path recently secured with handrails and balustrades.
This leads to the foot of the canyon where a brand new wooden bridge allows you to cross the Noce stream which has just resumed its course after having flowed from the Santa Giustina dam.
Finally, go up the other side of the canyon which, thanks to its south-west exposure, offers mild temperatures even in late autumn. Here are the remains of the hermitage of Santa Giustina.
The climb now ends by passing a slightly exposed stretch but always equipped with a balustrade to arrive again in the fields planted with apple orchards and ending in the town of Tassullo.
You can reach this itinerary starting on foot directly from Agritur Renetta.
