Stilfserjoch National Park

A breathtaking natural spectacle!

Stilfserjoch National Park
The National Parc Stelvio is the largest not only among the Italian parks, but also in the whole Alpine chain. It stretches in the heart of the Central Alps and includes typical valleys shaped by the action of ice and water flowing down from the imposing massif of the Ortles-Cevedale group. Majestic ridges, luxuriant forests, high mountain green grasslands crossed by foaming streams springing from perennial glaciers form the landscape of the Park.
Many rare animal and plant species live in wide ecosystems present in territory thanks to its remarkable differences in height and to its morphological variety. The landscape is scattered with villages and "masi" at the bottom of the valleys and on the mountain slopes: they are charming evidences of rural and religious architecture which complete the scenery in harmony with the surrounding environment.
On our guided hikes we bring you closer to this Alpine world, allowing you experience unique natural spectacles. We guide you to clear glacial lakes and sparkling mountain streams; on the way there our expert national park guides explain the diverse species of plants and animals found here.

National park visitors’ centers


Discover the world of the numerous kinds of bird of the National Park Stilfserjoch in the new information center "avimundus - bird world" in Schlanders. Apart from general information to the National Park Stilfserjoch, you get much knowing from the world of birds by the comprehensive bird collection of Hansjörg Götsch. Opening hours: TU - SA 10.00 - 12.00 and 15.00 - 18.00


The central theme of "aquaprad" in Prad is "water". Visitors dive into the near but still so far - foreign world of the local fish fauna. A stream aquarium, the panoramic windows to the open-air pond and 12 other aquariums show the fish in their element from an unusual perspective.


“culturamartell“ in Martell houses an exhibition about the culture of the mountain farmers - past and present. In close co-operation with the local population, it was possible to develop a simple exhibition, which tries to reflect the many expectations which exist through life and survival in such a relatively lonely high Alpine valley.


“naturatrafoi“ in Trafoi gives visitors some insight into the life in the high mountain region, the “life near the border“, which demands particular survival strategies from the people living there as well as the animals.


The Lahnersäge national park visitors’ center is situated in St. Gertraud in the back hills of the Ulten valley, in a restored Venetian sawmill, where tree trunks are sawn into planks using water power from the Falschauer river.
The national park visitors’ center houses an exhibition on the subject of “Forests and wood”.
