Rio Sass Canyon

The Rio Sass is one of the two Val di Non canyons which can be visited thanks to the cantilever walkways and staircases overhanging the gorge.

Along with your expert guide, don’t miss the opportunity to dive deep into the rocky heart of the Val di Non. Book your visit to the gorge!
From the main square in Fondo, an expert guide will escort you, equipped with a helmet and a waterproof, into the narrow passages of this spectacular gorge carved out by the Rio Sass stream, featuring crystal clear waterfalls, deep gullies and dark caves. You will see spectacular phenomena, created by the erosion of the rock, as well as a wealth of flora including red and green algae, moss and ferns.


Is the canyon open?
Canyon Rio Sass will be open on 30th March 2024.
Are there lots of steps?
Yes, 600.
Is it an underground cave?
No, the entire route is outdoors.
Is it very cold?
The temperature is a few degrees lower than outside the gorge.
Do you come back by a different route?
No, you go in and come out by the same way.
Can I make a booking on the day?
We recommend booking 1-2 days in advance.
Are children allowed in?
Yes. Between 0 and 3 years, only if they have their own helmet (the organisers do not have helmets in these sizes)
Can I bring my dog?
Yes, if it is not afraid of the suspended walkways with a metal grid flooring.
