Stelvio National Park
The Stelvio National Park is spread over 3 regions (Lombardia, Trentino and South Tyrol), 4 provinces (Sondrio, Brescia, Bolzano and Trento) and 24 municipalities in an area that covers 130000 hectares.
It preserves and protects the alpine flora and fauna, promotes both a culture based on respect for nature and its resources, and sustainable tourism.
The park is composed of coniferous woods, and spruce is the most common of all species, together with larch and pine.
Where wildlife is concerned, the Stelvio National Park features a wide variety of protected species such as deers, roe deers, ibexes, chamoises, foxes, stoats, marmots, squirrels and hares.
In the skies over the park you can see golden eagles, the symbol of the park, and bearded vultures, the largest bird of prey in the Alps that has been recently reintroduced into the Lombardia area.
