National Park experience – Winter

Winter is also a lovely time to head out on tour with a ranger. Not to mention the safety aspect, which is very much emphasised in the winter landscape, you also find out about nature in its most tranquil guise. On guided snow-shoe tours in Mallnitz or to the ibexes in Heiligenblut, you can get close to the  animals in winter in the Hohe Tauern.

In summer you can head off and enjoy the adventure programmes in the National Park, where the emphasis is on the unspoilt water bodies, impressive Alpine animal habitats and the sensory high Alpine landscape in the Hohe Tauern, with its characteristic flora and fauna.

What the kids are saying

“I have already learned so much about the nature in the National Park from the Young Explorers Club. I took part a few years ago when I was on holiday. We are going back to the Hohe Tauern National Park this year for our holidays . I’m now 14 and I think I might apply for the Junior Ranger Project. I think that the Ranger’s work is really interesting, maybe I might get lucky and will be accepted …!”
