The Puez – Odle/Geisler system covers an area of 7,930 hectares within the Province of Bolzano/Bozen and is entirely contained within the protected area of Parco Naturale Puez – Odle/Naturpark Puez – Geisler. It is made up of a relatively compact mountain chain surrounded by three delightful valleys: Val di Funes/Villnösser Tal to the North, Val Badia/Gadertal to the East and Val Gardena/Grödental to the South.

The northern part of the system is dominated by two imposing massifs: Odle d’Eores/Aferer Geisler and Odle di Funes/Vilnösser Geisler. A high plateau occupies the southern face, at an altitude of 2,500m. Towering over the archetypical Alpine scenery of pasturelands and little lakes are Col de Puez (2,725m) and Col de la Sonè (2,634m). The highest peak of Odle d’Eores/Aferer Geisler chain is Sas de Putia (2,875m), while the Odle di Funes/Vilnösser Geisler chain is dominated by Sas Rigais (3,025m).
