Discover the flora and fauna in the Nature Park Trodena
The Nature Park Trodena was opened in 1980 in the South Tyrolean part of the Val di Fiemme Alps and has been extended in 2000. With 6866 ha it includes the surrounding communities of Anterivo, Montagna, Egna, Salorno and Trodena. With over 400 km of mapped trails, this nature paradise is a fantastic place for hikers. It is bounded by the Val di Fiemme (Trentino) to the north, by the Valle di Cembra to the south-east and by the Val d’Adige to the west. The nature park is situated in an altitude ranging between 300 and 1.700 meter and thus is the only park below the 2000-meter mark. Due to the low altitude, the Nature Park Trodena features a very mild and sub-Mediterranean climate which enhances a vast biodiversity in both flora and fauna.
The unique landscape of Trodena
In the Nature Park Trodena, you will find wetlands and marshes, flowering meadows and deep woods which will enchant you with up to 40-m pine trees and spruces, as well as sunny glades full of blossoming laburnum. Wild lilies and orchids, hollies and butcher’s broom are just some examples of the diverse vegetation of the park. During your walks and hikes you might encounter native species like dormice or fire salamander. If you pay close attention while walking by meadows, ponds and mountain lakes, you can be sure to spot at least one of the shy inhabitants of the nature park.
Pay a visit to the Nature Park House
Admire the view of the South Tyrolean mountain landscape and take a break in one of the quaint mountain huts to enjoy your stay in the Nature Park Trodena to the fullest.
