Fanes-Senes-Braies Natural Park
The Fanes-Senes-Braies Natural Park with its 25,680 hectares, is the third largest park in the Province of Bolzano - South Tyrol. Since 2009, the Dolomites and the Natural Park Fanes-Senes-Braies are part of the UNESCO natural world heritage. Vast plateaus stretch higher than the tree line, forests and beautiful lakes. Due to its complex geomorphology, the park is of great scientific interest. Like in no other area in the Dolomites, the geomorphology of Fanes and Senes is strongly characterized by the carsism phenomenon with all its typical shapes, reed fields, leaks, wells and dolines, where permanent, or even more often temporary, lakes are formed.
The Visitors Centre of the "Fanes Senes Braies" Natural Park in San Vigilio di Marebbe is located 100 metres from the Camping AL PLAN*** - Dolomites.
