Protect the nature of Val Gardena

Protecting the environment

What we do and how we do it can further impact the environment or help to reduce the ecological impacts. So all of us have a role to play in protecting the environment.

Walkers:

  • Keep to the paths and spare meadows and mountain pastures;
  • Do not leave any litter. Carry all wrappers, cans etc. back down to the valley for disposal;
  • Do not pick protected flowers;
  • Do not make unnecessary noise that might frighten the game. Respect the natural habitat of all animals;
  • Observe the regulations when you are in a Nature Reserve;
  • Keep to the cycle tracks and forest roads when using a mountain bike;
  • Never light a fire in the woods. That is a threat to human life and to the environment, and not just during a dry summer. 

There are strict rules for picking mushrooms: in Selva Gardena and S. Cristina a maximum of 1 kilogram per adult may be picked on even days only, and you need a ticket from the Post Office S. Cristina or the Selva Gardena Tourist Office). The ticket costs € 8,00.

Picking mushrooms is illegal throughout the territory of Ortisei.
