Unspoilt nature, unique flora and fauna and a multitude of wild animals – Graubünden offers impressive nature reserves where long-range hikes can be combined with wildlife watching.
Biosfera Val MüstairThe Biosfera Val Müstair is a regional nature park and, together with the Swiss National Park and parts of the municipality of Scuol, forms the first UNESCO high Alpine biosphere reserve in Switzerland. The park offers guided tours for young and old – learn to read animal tracks or go on the trail of wolves.
Swiss National ParkThe Swiss National Park offers regular guided tours by experienced rangers. They accompany hikers to destinations such as Val Trupchun, regaling them with interesting facts about the local flora and fauna. With a little luck you will encounter deer, ibex, chamois and maybe even a bearded vulture.
Parc ElaRed and roe deer are a common sight in Val d’Err or Val Tuors in the Parc Ela nature park. Accompanied by a hiking guide and gamekeeper, visitors can set off early in the morning in search of wild animals. Around 450 ibex and 2,000 chamois live in the summit regions. The sound of the bellowing deer that echoes through the valley in autumn is particularly striking.
Beverin Nature Park
The Beverin Nature Park is home to the ibex. Visit the Center da Capricorns to learn all about the king of the mountains, then observe him in the wild as part of a guided hike. The Safien-Rheinwald ibex colony, which numbers around 350 animals, has made its home in the heart of the park.
