Out and about with the National Park Rangers

Adventurous, exciting and at times even dangerous – the day to day life of a National Park Ranger. The fact is that rangers in the Hohe Tauern National Park have a key role to play in maintaining the biggest conservation area in the Alps.

You couldn't imagine the Hohe Tauern National Park without the rangers. They are the undisputed National Park experts, are very well trained and are all deeply rooted in the region. The rangers know the National Park like the back of their hands - every hidden corner, every rock and every plant. 

First hand knowledge

If you want to find out as much as possible about the Hohe Tauern National Park, it stands to reason that you would go on a tour with a National Park ranger. They are guaranteed to know the loveliest places, mysterious energy sources and secret places. The National Park rangers will plan an individual voyage of discovery through the National Park to suit you and will take you to the rushing waterfalls, to Austria's biggest glacier and to places where you can still observe animals at close quarters in their natural habitat. They also provide any amount of interesting information about one of the loveliest and most precious landscapes in Europe.

Learn with a ranger

Children in particular are keen trainees for the rangers. Experience, observe and grasp the natural surroundings – there is no nicer, more exciting way to learn. What's more, National Park rangers create a strong awareness of the National Park as a valuable habitat, one which is worth protecting. Each hike with a National Park ranger is a unique adventure. Such a tour is a journey into the geology, flora and fauna of the Alps and of the history of mankind too. With the rangers you get to head out on millennia old paths, discovering the many traces of the past on pilgrimage routes, trading routes, miners' paths, Alpine trails, passes and Alpine crossings. For nature lovers who have some Alpine experience, National Park rangers also have some 'really big' adventures in store. They take hikers safely through the mountains and help you see the alpine variety in a whole new light.
