In the bear's steps - Excursion to the Conturines cave
- 08:30 AM-04:00 PM
Excursion in the Nature Park Fanes-Senes-Braies to the Conturines cave. Information and reservation at the tourist offices by the day before (places limited).
An unique discovery and a world „first”! While walking in the Conturines area in 1987, a hiker came across a cave of around 200 meters, containing the bones of a Cave Bear (Ursus spelaeus), which became extinct 11.000 years ago and was typical of these areas. On this walk, we will retrace the stages of that find in the cave and breathe in the atmosphere of the Ice Age.
