... become a rock detective!
Sharp, round, flat, rough, grey, blue and red – the rocks and stones in Nassfeld reveal much about the Carnic Alps and their turbulent history.
Indeed, the whole Gailtal Valley is like a picture book laid open telling the fascinating story of Planet Earth over the last 500 million years. Today these rocks and stones continue to stand tall and can be found in all different shapes and sizes along the region's geotrails.
For millions of years it has carved open the landscape, washing away everything in its path: water. The "Garnitzenklamm" canyon is a fascinating testament to the irresistible natural power of rivers and streams as they carve a path from the glaciers high above down to the valley floor. This geotrail follows the spring water flowing through the canyon back to its source.
