The walkway – spanning a total length of 700 metres – takes you into the gorge and make you feel like you’re floating. The best thing about this place are the refreshing temperatures in summer. But don’t walk too fast, there are many things waiting to be discovered! Above your head are some amazing rock formations and below your feet the roaring waters and fossils of snails and other shells. Make sure you pay attention to the details: seemingly boring lichens become true wonders of nature and small caves the discovery of the year. All the while, the water splashes down the riverbed and make the whole ravine vibrate.
Stones of all colours and shapes and the wild roar of the water in your ears – sounds everything but boring, right? We heard that some of the inhabitants of Gams come here every day to discover new magical places for themselves. Avalanches occur frequently in winter and during the summer season you can sometimes see the traces of them, when behind every corner there’s a new rock formation to see. Wildly romantic is how some would describe the gorge, thrilling is what others might say. We say both are valid descriptions depending on whether you discover the gorge with your heart or with your brains.
The Nothklamm Gorge is part of the UNESCO Global Geoparks Network.
