Stelvio National Park

The Stelvio National Park, the largest protected area throughout Italy with the highest Italian mountain pass, is found in the west of South Tyrol.

The Stelvio National Park, currently one of 24 Italian national parks, covers the entire Ortles-Cevedale massif and borders the Swiss National Park in the northwest and the Adamello Nature Park (Lombardy) in the south. With 130,734 hectares it extends from the Val Venosta with the upper valleys of Solda and Trafoi to the Val Martello and the upper part of the Val d'Ultimo. Stretching from 900 to 3,905 metres above sea level, the nature park includes mountains and glaciers, rivers and valleys alike.

A rich number of rare animals and plants are found here. Floodplains, spruce forests, larch yew forest and Alpine grass alternate with rocks, mountain streams and lakes. Here you'll see moss bells, mountain valerian, low-growing heath, Alpine rhaeticum, Alpine dandelion and hairy Alpine rose. The fauna includes e.g. ermine, Alpine ibex, marmot and chamois as well as many birds, such as oriole, hawfinch, colourful woodpecker, common crossbill, spotted nutcracker, black grouse and wallcreeper.

The hamlets and villages of the valleys fit harmoniously into this special natural scenery. Qualified guides will introduce you to the Stelvio National Park. Moreover, there are four information centres and an information point, where you can learn all about the local flora and fauna. Worth seeing!
