Description

A 315 meters high triple jump, a gush of water diving onto the valley, a breath taking landscape. It’s the Serio Waterfalls, Italy’s highest and Europe’s second highest ones.

The mountains of Bergamo hide some amazing treasures and beauties, such as the Serio River Waterfalls. This 124 km long river creates one of the two main valleys of our province: the Seriana Valley.

In 1931 a dam interrupted the river flow in order to generate electric power. However, it has been opened five times a year during the summertime, for the past 50 years. Come enjoy the power of nature unleashed: 10 thousands cubic meters or roaring water diving to towards the valley and breaking on the rocks. Thousands of people come together to the meadows to attend this rare and enchanting show every year!

Use this opportunity to have a jaunt across the Seriana Valley and visit the lovely mountain hamlets before going to admire the waterfalls.
In 2017 the dam will open from 11 to 11.30 a.m. on June 18th, august 20th, September 17th and October 15th. Don’t miss the exciting and wonderful special night opening on July 15th, from 10 to 10.30 p.m.!

Put on a pair of comfy shoes, bring your packed lunch, lots of water and a good camera: come discover the Serio Waterfalls!

Note:
Follow the mule track leading to the Rifugio Curò mountain refuge to reach the best observation point for the Waterfalls.
