Where the Ciamin valley begins, in the locality of Bagni di Lavina Bianca, you will find an information point of the Sciliar-Catinaccio Nature Park. Once the house served as a rare Venetian water mill, called "Steger Säge", but today it hosts one of the park's information points. It tells you all about the geology of the Sciliar massif and the origins of the Dolomites in a lively and interesting way. It also features a media room, where a film about the world of rocks is displayed in regular intervals.
Additionally to the information point in Tires there is an info point near to the Pond of Fiè. Here you might get lots of information about the flora of the pond, the local fauna and reeds, and about the fish living in the pond.
The Steger Saw is open only during the summer months, season start 2024 at the end of June.
