The Puez-Odle Nature Park

Unspoiled Nature

In order to better appreciate the natural wonders of Alta Badia you can hike across the Puez-Odle nature park, starting from Colfosco. The park borders with the Börz and Gardena mountain pass, on the the north and south side respectively. The east side reaches to the Funes valley, for an area of approximately 10.722 hectares. The park’s karstic highlands, majestic rock faces, rolling Alpine pastures set off against bizarre looking backdrops of cleft mountains, valleys formed by extreme erosion, and dark coniferous forests comprise a multifarious landscape that is rarely found in such a small area.

Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park

Dolomites, Breathtaking Landscapes

Another nature park in Alta Badia is the Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park with an area of 25,680 hectares. Lakes, alpine plateaus, forests and clear alpine lakes can be admired in the Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park. In this territory characterised by karst rocks you can see sinkholes, grooves and hollows in which lasting or temporary lakes form. For this reason the nature park is also of great geomorphologic interest.
