The Blinnenhorn is enthroned at the very back of the Blinnen valley, which leads from Reckingen to the south. The closer surroundings of the mountain impress with their magnificent glaciation. Around the large cold mountain there are several isolated side valleys, such as the Blinnental, the Vallone di Nefelgiù or the Rappental, as well as the populated valleys - the Goms, the Binntal and on the Italian side the Pomatt (Val Formazza).
Worth seeing are the still largely intact mountain villages. The two old trade routes over the Griespass and the Albrunpass connect the Goms with the Italian Pomatt and the Veglia-Devero Nature Park. Today the mountain valleys have to struggle with emigration, a fate that is not new. Already in the 12th and 13th centuries, the Goms was one of the starting points for the emigration of the Walser.
The numerous lakes, the alpine pastures with their diverse flora and the different rock formations make up the charm of the magnificent mountain landscape: the Bättelmatt floodplain landscape, the Oxefeld, a moorland landscape of national importance, the deep blue reservoirs Lago Vannino, Lago di Morasco and Lago di Sabbione as well as the rocks in the most varied colours and shapes.
