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/Latsch. The Tarscher Murkegel rises to a height of 1,828 m above sea level with the picturesque Tarsch lake to the north side of the Ulten 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.
