The nature and national parks of the Dolomites

These are the holiday regions in the Dolomites, which are truly blessed with natural beauty. The flora and fauna of this natural area between the Alpine and Dolomite peaks could not be any more diverse. Several nature parks reveal special aspects of Mother Nature. Hiking and discovery are real pleasure and adventure here in the natural and national parks of the Dolomites.

Natural treasures such as the world-famous Three Peaks, the Geisler Group and the Lake of Braies will provide wonderful magical moments for you and your loved ones during your holiday in the Dolomites. You may even see ibexes on the Seekofel, or one or two groundhogs ...

The first natural park, Sciliar-Catinaccio Nature Park, was established in 1974. Since then, more and more emphasis has been placed on the preservation of nature and the landscape, and these days there are natural and national parks in the Dolomites, which we briefly describe below.
