Dolomiti Rangers: helping young explorers grow
18 August 2022
Studying nature through play
The project aims to introduce children to the natural sciences, helping them to familiarise themselves with the flora and fauna of these enchanted places through a series of playful and educational activities proposed by a team of expert guides, who will accompany your children through different trials until they have earned their “ranger” diploma.
A summer adventure
The best time to embark on this adventure is obviously the warm season. During the summer months, young explorers can immerse themselves in amazing nature trails and face obstacles to overcome and dilemmas to address. What animal left these tracks on the ground? What species does this colourful flower belong to?
The answers will come, and thanks to the direct approach in the field all your children's senses will be involved so that they will preserve these outdoor lessons not only in their minds, but also in their hearts, making it virtually impossible to forget what they have learnt.
In Tre Cime Nature Park
Two days together to get to know the natural wonders of Alta Pusteria better: on the first day you’ll explore the Dolomites together with a specialised guide, along with the Tre Cime and Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Parks with the vegetation that surrounds them. You’ll have a hard time waiting on the second day, as you’ll have to wait until dusk for your adventure: indeed, the tour is at night.
The atmosphere will be almost magical, while the silence will only be interrupted by the noises of the animals intrigued by your after-hours presence. Both excursions can be booked or just one of the two.

In Puez-Odle Nature Park
Children will learn more about the mysterious world of animals and plants in the Dolomites inside this Italian green lung. They will no longer wonder how plants survive or what a national park actually is.
