Discovering the Latemar atoll: a magnificent fossilised archipelago in the Dolomites, a World Heritage Site!
Every Wednesday from 8th July to 9th September 2020 you can join an exciting geological field trip in collaboration with the Geological Museum of the Dolomites in Predazzo and the Muse science museum in Trento.
You start at the Feudo Pass and continue along the Coston del Latemar to the Torre di Pisa refuge to discover the submerged flank of an ancient island that emerged 240 million years ago from the Triassic sea. But you won’t be alone – you will be guided by an expert geologist and mountain guide to explore the heart of the atoll up to the col of the Forcella dei Camosci and through the depths of a tropical sea back to your starting point. It is an impressive circular route of medium difficulty and incredible beauty.
