The Stelvio National Park
is the second largest protected area in the Alpine crescent. Glaciers and rocky regions dominate the park. 40% of its area is located in South Tyrol, the entire Ortles-Cevedale group with the highest peaks in the country lies within its borders. The biggest part of it, again, is in Venosta Valley. So it is no wonder that the headquarters of the National Park Service as well as four of the five South Tyrolean National Park visitor centers
(naturatrafoi in Trafoi, aquaprad in Prato/Prad, culturamartell in Martello/Martell and avimundus in Silandro/Schlanders) are located in Venosta Valley.
