Nature parks

Eight nature reserves with a surface of 180,000 hectares protect the beautiful and unique landscape and nature in South Tyrol.

Walking across the great outdoors is always a special experience, particularly when hiking through a nature park, where nature with its beautiful alpine meadows, mountain lakes and majestic peaks is protected against human interventions. Furthermore, the information centres introduce the visitors to the highly diversified flora and fauna of the surrounding area.

There are a total of eight nature parks in South Tyrol - a ninth one, the Sarentino Alps Nature Park, is in planning stage.
