Spormaggiore Animal Refuge Park
What to see in Trentino? The attractions suggested by Trentino in Moto for the holiday in the mountain.
Spormaggiore Animal Refuge Park offers all its visitors the unique opportunity to observe various kinds of predators who live in the Alps, like the brown bear, at close quarters.
Presently there are three female brown bears – whose reserve is covering an area of 7.000 square meters– who live in the park: the oldest bear of Europe, Bel, born in Sardagna (TN), and her two sisters, Cleo and Cora, who were born in the enclosure of San Romedio, a place of pilgrimage, situated in the Non valley.
Another attraction of the Park are the wolfs, which reserve covers an area 3.500 square meters of wooded land. These animals can be watched in their natural surroundings from two vantage points overlooking the whole area. All two wolfs – Sissi and Luna – are female and were born in 2009.
In addition, you can watch other animals like three foxes and three lynxes, two pairs of eagle owls – two females and two males – in a large 30 square meters aviary, and three wildcats, two females and one male.
Numerous trees like beeches, spruces and larches, a small brook with dammed up expanses and small waterfalls are surrounding the entire park.
Moreover, the animals' park will again be extended in the near future to give shelter to other species equally fascinating and typical of the Alps: to otters.
Finally, the park also offers a farm harboring numerous domestic animals, a playground, a combined bar/gadget point and a video room with more than 20 seats.
