South Tyrol for animal lovers

You wouldn't go on a journey without your “four-legged friend”? You children wish eagerly for farm or riding holidays, where they can perceive their favourite animals at close range?

You really like Haflinger horses (so known as Avelignese) or you would like to see the cute marmot with your own eyes?

All those who have a heart for animals, have countless opportunities in South Tyrol to pass some time with their – small or big – pets. Many people in South Tyrol live close to nature and its creatures. The importance of agriculture and its companion animals is still high and there are various nature parks and biotopes – habitat for threatened species and plants.

If attentive and patient visitors are in luck, maybe they see an ibex or a chamois between the rocks, they hear the agitated skirl of the marmots or they even descry an eagle in the sky. The wonderful promenades and walks throughout South Tyrol are a veritable paradise for dog owners and their trusty companions, as well as for horse lovers. And to conclude a tip for those who are searching a really special adventure: Make a trekking tour accompanied by lamas and alpacas.

In short: Unforgettable moments for animal lovers in South Tyrol!
