The highest peaks in this nature park rise to 3,900 metres a.s.l.
The Stelvio National Park is definitely among the biggest Italian nature parks and the largest one of the Alps. Colourful valleys formed by huge glaciers some thousand years ago, pristine waters and the Ortles-Cevedale massif towering high above - this is the Stelvio National Park.
The nature park is home to numerous types of animals such as deer, chamois, eagles, ibexes, wolves, woodpeckers as well as a rich variety of plants such as buttercups or wild orchids.
The Stelvio National Park features three visitor centres:
> “Centro Visite Rabbi”: The visitor centre of the municipality of Rabbi is located in the hamlet of Fonti. It boasts spacious show rooms and pictures illustrating the local fauna and a Venetian sawmill from the 18th century.
> “Centro Visite Peio”: Situated in Cogolo, it features a so-called “room of trees” that introduces the visitors in a fascinating way to the life of the trees.
> “Centro Visite Stable”: Located in the Valle di Saent, it tells you everything about Alpine pastures and the habitat of the marmots.
