In the Venosta Valley holiday region, one is always in close proximity of nature. The small petting zoos are a favorite with the kids, with piglets, bunnies and guinea pigs all competing for attention. Several stables such as at the Hotel Lamm in Tubre/Taufers and the Ansteingut farm in Spondigna/Spondinig offer riding lessons and guided excursions on horseback. The Haider Alm Alpine Pasture has trekking tours on the nice and soft hump of a lama, which is popular with children. The National Park Visitors Center avimundus in Silandro/Schlanders houses an aviary, while the National Park Visitors Center aquaprad in Prato/Prad showcases the world of reptiles and amphibians.
