Dolomiti Ranger

The kids, protectors of the Dolomites

The Dolomiti Rangers, within the nature park of Fanes Senes and Braies, are playful characters enacted by children from 7 to 12 years of age who sign up at the visitor center in the San Vigilio nature park. Accompanied by their parents and with the help of an expert guide, they go into the nature park to explore themes about nature with a training module of their choice (morning, afternoon or evening) and to learn the rules of behavior to protect a nature park.

The guided tours take place in summer and winter, at set times depending on the module, and are interesting and exciting for the whole family; they also take place in other South Tyrolean nature parks.

On the tracks of wild animals

Your adventure begins in the  visitor centre of the Fanes-Sennes-Braies Nature Park! In a small tour you will discover traces of animals from distant times that tell us the exciting history of the Dolomites. You will also learn which plants and animals live in the Nature Park, where they live and what tricks they have developed to survive sometimes under difficult conditions.
And then you go out into nature! Here you can analyse the tracks to find out which animals live in the forest. In the Owl Park you can see many birds of prey such as owls and the golden eagle up close. And of course we also take the time to listen to the Music of the trees.

Wildlife Observation at dawn

What can we learn from feathers, furs, horns and antlers? What do we have to keep in mind when observing wild animals? When do animals need protection? On this early-morning hike, our young explorers get a chance to sharpen all five senses and, with a bit of luck, even spot a chamois or deer! During a delicious breakfast at Rifugio Pederü, everyone still has the opportunity to ask our expert David everything they ever wanted to know about the wild animals in our mountains.
