A nature experience for the whole family

Children from 7 to 12 years and their parents, accompanied by experts, explore the unique nature of the Alta Pusteria Valley. With a lot of fun and a pinch of adventure, the whole family will discover on the first day the Three Peaks Visitor Center and the Lake of Dobbiaco, located in the Fanes-Sennes-Braies Nature Park. At the end of the day, the young ranger are awarded the Dolomiti Ranger diploma. The second day is spent in the evening in the Wood Wonder World. Quiet, very quiet and mysterious it is there! It is the ideal place for exciting Dolomites legends and with a little luck to hear nocturnal animals.

Tuesday 09.30am - 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.

Meeting point:
09.30 am at the Three Peaks Visitor Center

Walking boots, sunscreen, hiking clothes, rain gear, packed lunch and something to drink for the hike.

Wednesday 21 - 23 o'clock (only in italian language)

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.

Meeting point:
9 pm at the Three Peaks Visitor Center

Sturdy shoes, hiking clothes (warm jacket), rain gear and something to drink
