The Fanes-Sennes-Braies Natural Park, with an area of almost 26,000 hectares, is the second largest nature park in South Tyrol after the Tessa Massif Nature Park. It is especially interesting to visit the nature park in autumn, because of the golden-yellow colors of the larch trees and the lively tones of the rest of the vegetation, combined with the dolomite rock, create an incomparable spectacle.
During the many walks and hikes in our natural parks between alpine pastures and mountains, it is not rare to see one of the many idyllic alpine lakes.
An example may be the small Lè Vert lake on the Pices Fanes pasture, one of the most fabulous alpine lakes, which reflects the peaks of S. Antonio and Furcia dai Fers in its clear waters. Equally beautiful, however, also many other lakes that we will be happy to recommend you directly during your holiday in San Vigilio or San Martin.
