The rutting - Stelvio National Park

CAMOUFLAGED IN THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT TO OBSERVE THE RED DEER’S COURTING RITUAL

Many animal species live in the Park. The most imposing animal is the red deer, a hoofed animal which is active at dusk and dawn, and may be observed in woodland clearings. In autumn, its courting behaviour is fascinating to watch: strange sounds, colours and odours intermingle with vocal contests, all of which aim to conquer the female harem.
It is a truly fascinating experience to watch this ritual in the Peio and Rabbi valleys, where the red deer density is amongst the highest in the Alps.
The walks do not present any particular difficulties, but they do require a certain familiarity with day trips in the mountains.
