WHAT TO EXPECT /ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION

Night walk at Stelvio National Park to experience the secrets of the night.

There are 4 night excursions each week: 

  • two excursions, one in Val di Peio and the other one in Val di Rabbi, are in the company of mountain guides with astronomy expertise who will teach you interesting facts about the most important constellations and how to spot them;
  • two excursions, one in Val di Peio and the other one in Val di Rabbi, are in the company of nature guides who will teach you about the creatures, small and large, that inhabit the Park at night. 
INTERESTING FACTS

Stelvio is the largest national park in the Italian Alpine region. It extends across four provinces (Trento, Bolzano, Sondrio, and Brescia) and two regions (Lombardy and Trentino Alto Adige). 
The Ortles Cevedale massif is the heart of the protected area. Large conifer forests and beautiful meadows spread out from here, hiding the secrets of the valleys. This will be the backdrop of our small adventure. 

WHO ARE WE

The primary objective at Stelvio National Park is to safeguard the environment and wildlife. We are professionals and nature lovers, eager to share our knowledge with people of all ages.
