The Transfrontier Geopark of the Carnic Alps

The Carnic Alps safeguard a heritage of outstanding importance: the full, faithful account of geological history of this local area over the past 450 million years. The Transfrontier Geopark of the Carnic Alps, with its itineraries, its pedagogical and informative initiatives, its visitor centres and museums, will enable you to discover a different way of exploring the mountain.

Paying a visit to the Transfrontier Geopark of the Carnic Alps means learning to interpret the local area, understanding its history, brushing aside all the clichés, observing the interaction between geological history and works carried out by human hands… discovering the pleasure of consciously benefitting from all this.
