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 Nature Park Visitor Center Three Peaks 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.

Wednesday 21 - 23 o'clock

Night walk in the Wood Wonder World of 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 Cristina, I studied Forest Science and work in the Nature Park Visitor Center Three Peaks. The forest is the best place for me to tell stories and to learn about its wonderful residents.

Night excursion in the magic wood of Sesto
When the dark is coming we will take our luggage and start: with eavesdropping ears we are walking through the mystical fairyforest and collect stones. Maybe someone is listening to us? Maybe the Olperl who’s playing a trick? We are looking for a cosy place to stay and there we paint our stones and give them magic power while I will tell you stories. Stories about people who lived here a long time ago and about the Olperl and also about the Stolen Wood. And maybe the magic stones are helpening us to meet this magic figures while we are dancing the fairy-dance.
