Description

The glacier garden is located about 400 meters south of the station and is well marked and secured throughout. All glacier mills are precisely described and secured with railings. A glacial pot is even "interactive". You can climb down a steel staircase with caution to the bottom of this huge circular pot. In addition to the glacier mills, there is also a unique alpine vegetation in the glacier garden. After the retreat of the glacier about 10,000 years ago, a special biotope was also created. On the tour you reach a beautiful hillside terrace with a view of the whole Valposchiavo. The hike ends at the bridge over the Cavagliasco stream, where a huge canyon opens up. You can descend into this gorge via a metal staircase and admire the bizarre rock formations. On a wide path you return to the train station in a few minutes.
