A rich and diverse natural heritage
Val Resia is one of the most picturesque of all the Alpine valleys. It is located in the province of Udine and is crossed by the Torrente Resia, which rises at the foot of Monte Canin, separating the Alps from the Julian Prealps, up to the border with Slovenia.
Val Resia’s natural heritage is one of its main attractions and the inspiration behind numerous excursions. The area has rich, diverse vegetation and its fauna comprises more than 1,200 species. In addition to hiking trails, there are also the cultural routes which allow you to discover historic sites, along with the landscape.
Sports enthusiasts in Val Resia can enjoy mountaineering, bouldering and water activities such as rafting and kayaking.
Each of the five main villages in the valley has a centre surrounded by typical buildings, consisting of large stone walls and wooden roofs.
The Museo etnografico della gente della Val Resia ethnographic museum, housed in the Casa Buttolo Ploc, is well worth a visit. It is perfect for discovering the history of the local people.
