Tour description

From the forests of the Ofen Pass, to the high Alpine meadows rich in flora and fauna and offering splendid views over half the National Park: the nature trail provides interesting information about both open and hidden secrets along the way. The route begins in the heart of the extensive Ofen Pass forests (car park 8 or 9) and winds through a jungle of standing, fallen, living and dead trees. This is typical of the National Park, where Mother Nature has been left completely to her own devices. The nature trail information panels provide fascinating information throughout the hike. Marmots can often be seen on Alp Stabelchod. The path continues up into the Val Stabelchod. From the rest area, you can see the nest where 26 bearded vultures have already been released into the wild. Alpine meadows with beautiful Alpine flora, including edelweiss, take you up to Margunet. From here, there is a stunning panorama over half the National Park and the glacial landscape formed during the last ice age. Golden eagles and chamois can often been seen here, and sometimes even bearded vultures and ibex. As you traverse the Val dal Botsch, you will pass impressive scree slopes and rock formations on your return to the pass road. Shortly after crossing the Fuorn stream, you reach the Hotel Parc Naziunal.
