The larches, stone pines and fossilised streams of torrential lava (Murkegel)
, among the biggest in the Alps, are features of the magnificent natural environment around Laces
. The Tarscher Murkegel rises to a height of 1,828 m above sea level with the picturesque Lake Tarres to the north side of the Ultimo Ridge, surrounded by a forest of tall spruces.
The groves of alders and reeds growing on the banks of the mill canal, is another beauty spot created by the wetlands
. This small biotope is the remains of what was once a vast field that extended throughout the valley.
