Paneveggio - Pale di San Martino Natural Park
The perfect balance between man and nature in a still intact and wild territory
The Paneveggio - Pale di San Martino Natural Park was created in 1967 to safeguard and enhance a protected area of about 200 square km which includes not only the Paneveggio forest and the Pale di San Martino which belong to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, but also the environments close to the Lagorai chain, on the border with Valsugana, and Lusia - Cima Bocche, to the west towards the Val di Fiemme.
The symbols of the park are mainly two: the spruce, ideal for the manufacture of musical instruments such as the famous Stradivari violins, and the deer, an animal that you can observe closely at the Paneveggio visitor centre.
Other visitor centres are located in Canal San Bovo, San Martino di Castrozza and Villa Welsperg in Val Canali. Here you can get to know and explore the park through experiences and activities always in close contact with nature.
In the Vanoi valley there is an ethnographic path and an Eco-museum to discover the customs, traditions and flavours of mountain life, which can be savoured in the many huts and refuges accessible walking on the comfortable paths scattered throughout the Park.
