New educational nature trail in the Rofan mountains
Get educated on how to explore responsibly: The new educational nature trail near the mountain station of the Rofan cable car features 7 stations where you can familiarize yourself with how to be respectful of people, wildlife, and the environment.
At approximately two kilometres long, the path climbs over 200 metres of elevation. In winter, the path serves as an avalanche educational trail, teaching ski tourers and snowshoers the proper conduct in the mountains and how to use avalanche beacons, shovels and probes. In summer, the interpretive panels are replaced, transforming the “avalanche educational trail” into an “educational nature trail” which aims at developing a deep enduring respect for our environment. Learn the rules for walking near grazing cattle, how to respect wildlife and alpine flowers, and how to plan hiking and mountain tours.
We also use social media to promote environmentally conscious behaviour in the mountains, at the lake and in the valleys. In our Facebook awareness campaign “Taktvoll” (being respectful) we share tips using comics and original captions to raise awareness for being mindful in nature and staying safe when enjoying the outdoors. Sounds interesting? Check out our campaign!
The interpretive panels, which are mounted on gabion baskets, are changed manually and sustainably, avoiding costly helicopter flights.
