National Park Rangers

The rangers in Hohe Tauern National Park have specialist nature-based expertise, as well as experience of hiking and mountains. Their requirements and duties are many and varied but the most important mission of a National Park Ranger is the communication between people and nature. As perfect companions, rangers have been taking people safely and competently through the Hohe Tauern National Park now for more than 20 years. At the same time, you get to find out more about botanics, glaciers, wildlife, birds and butterflies as well as interesting information about features specific to the region.
