#2 Via Mala Gorge

A place that humbles the power of the wa

Via Mala is located near the town of Zillis. In earlier times, it served as an access road to the Alps. Her name - Via mala ("The Bad Way") - testifies to the fact that this was a very dangerous stretch of travel. The gorge is created by the Hinterrhein River, which is one of the two main tributaries of the Rhine.

#4 Aareschlucht gorge

The most visited gorge in Switzerland

The Aareschlucht gorge is located in eastern Berner Oberland and connects the towns of Meiringen and Innertkirchen. A roughly 1.4 km long trail crosses the gorge along the wild, milky white waters of the River Aare, and passes tunnels and ledges below the limestone overhangs. The gorge is 180 meters deep and at the narrowest point less than one meter wide. The Aare River flows at a rate of up to 12 km per hour. In the summer, the canyon is splendidly lit on Thursday evening.

#7 Vintgar gorge

The most visited gorge in Slovenia

Slovenia's best-known and most visited gorge was discovered by the local mayor and cartographer Jakob Žumer and photographer Benedict Lergetpore in 1891. The first tourists could see it for two years after that in 1893. It is 1600 meters long and the canyon reaches depths up to 250 meters, but my personal estimate is some 150 meters. There is an entrance fee of 5 Euro and there are a lot of tourists.
