THE PROGRAM: 

Tuesday 9.30am - 4pm 

A journey of discovery into the nature park
Where did the mountains come from and who gave them the name Dolomites? The Three Peaks Visitor Center is the best place to understand this. Here we see how these mountains were formed, what life there was then and what will happen in the future.
Once we understand this we go out into nature. There are many things to discover on the hike to Lake of Dobbiaco. As a tool for discovery and research, you get a Bug Viewer Box (Insect Microscope) as a gift! Young ranger should always have one in their backpack! In the afternoon all natural scientists are awarded the Dolomiti Ranger diploma.

Expert:

Wednesday 21 - 23 o'clock

Night walk in the Wood Wonder World | Dobbiaco
Soon it will be dark and for us today it goes out again into the forest. Instinctively we sharpen our senses! The silence of dawn is interrupted by our footsteps and dull-sounding noises. Are they fairies, dwarves or giants living here? Or maybe you know an animal that is still active at this time?
Today I will tell you stories of peoples who lived here a long, long time ago and in the mountains of the Dolomites.

Expert:
My name is Paola and I am a hiking guide. I worked in a bookstore for many years. I like to tell stories and understand the secrets of nature. I work with the Three Peaks Visitor Center, the Bunker Museum in Dobbiaco and am a teacher in the School of Home Economics.

Meeting point:
9 pm at the Three Peaks Visitor Center

Night excursion in the magic wood | Sesto
The sounds of the forest make us stand still and listen. The light is very special here. And somehow it smells quite different. Like wood, earth, resin and rain. The forest feels alive. We will explore the forest in the darkness with all our senses. On the walk through the forest there is so much to discover especially stones that we will collect. While we paint our stones at a cosy place and give them magic power, I will tell you stories... about people who lived here a long time ago also about the stolen forest.

EXPERT: My name is Annemarie, I’m working at the Tourist Office Sexten. I love doing expeditions with kids and I love telling stories – the best place for doing it is the forest.
