Whether it be classroom nature or nature in the classroom: The Austrian National Parks’ educational programmes raise awareness of nature conservation and communicate appreciation of our natural heritage.
The wide range of all-year-round and seasonal National Park tours spans from the first introductory tours to a challenging outdoor experience. Excursions guided by certified rangers guarantee close-up insights into the flora and fauna, bring the history of the region closer and, with funny anecdotes, make sure that a shared experience of nature does not stop people having fun. Bookings can be made on the National Parks’ websites or at the visitor facilities.
More detailed information is available on the website of the respective National Park.
