The Swiss National Park and Passo dello Stelvio/Stilfserjoch National Park are not far away from Tubre in Val Monastero/Taufers im Münstertal and are two wonderful conservation areas that are a real natural paradise for animal and plant lovers.
The Swiss National Park extends over an area of roughly 170 km² in the canton of Grisons, or more precisely in Engadine. It offers 80 km of signposted hiking trails, which you can use on your holiday to observe alpine animals, for example marmots, red deer, ibexes, chamois, red foxes, golden eagles, wolves and much more out in the wild and to explore nature worthy of protection in a respectful way. In Zernez you can also visit the Swiss National Park's Visitors Centre.
The Passo dello Stelvio/Stilfserjoch National Park extends over an area of roughly 134,000 hectares, spread over the provinces South Tyrol, Trento/Trient, Brescia and Sondrio, and bordering onto the Swiss National Park in the north west. The Passo dello Stelvio/Stilfserjoch National Park is a paradise for hikers, who with a bit of luck will come across marmots, chamois, ibexes and other alpine animals and can watch golden eagles and bearded vultures flying. The aquaprad, culturamartel and naturatrafoi National Park Visitor Centres provide insight into various themes on the flora and fauna in the Passo dello Stelvio/Stilfserjoch National Park and are attractive day trip destinations for young and old nature lovers.
