The "floating" adventure path with eight viewing platforms, which are connected by suspension bridges, leads from the visitors' platform at lofty heights towards the north outdoor area. There you will find the rocky part of the Arosa Bear Sanctuary complex. Visitors see the bears from a new perspective and gain an eventful insight into the northern enclosure. In addition, the animal keepers are given new possibilities for distributing food.
