With the onset of winter, it becomes quieter in the forests of Parc Ela. And yet! Animal tracks in the snow show us that deer, deer, hare or fox are still looking for food.
Many mammals have eaten fat reserves over the warm days to prepare themselves for the cold and food-poor season. Birds such as the black grouse or ptarmigan cope with freezing temperatures by retreating into a snow cave. However, if the animals are disturbed by ignorance or forced to flee, they have to expend the energy they actually need to survive in winter. To prevent wildlife from getting into trouble, it is important to carefully select snowshoe routes, avoid sensitive habitats and observe signposted wildlife rest zones.
Whether beginner or advanced, the tour is suitable for any nature lover who wants to learn more about Parc Ela and the wildlife that lives here. Tips on how to behave correctly in the great outdoors and information on wildlife rest zones will make you fit for your own tour in the snow.
