Nature park Vedrette Ries Aurina

Nature park Vedrette di Ries-Aurina - Rieserferner-Ahrn

The Nature park Vedrette di Ries-Aurina - Rieserferner-Ahrn is the second-largest nature park in South Tyrol, and is famed for its extraordinarily contrastive scenery and variety: majestic summits and lustrous glaciers, and - farther down below - verdant fields and meadows featuring a tremendous variety of flora and fauna.

The Nature park Vedrette di Ries-Aurina - Rieserferner-Ahrn got its name from the characteristic range of mountains: the Vedrette di Ries group.

The 3,436 meter-high Hochgall, looming majestically over Riva di Tures, is among them.

Some of the country's most-beautiful waterfalls and Alpine lakes can be found here.

The protected area is located in the north of the Pusteria valley, between the Tauferer - Ahrntal and the Anterselva valley.
