About Destination Nature
Since 2016, the Swiss Parks Network, ATE Switzerland and the Graubünden Birdlife association together with the Rhaetian Railway and the PostBus have come together under the Destination Nature (Fahrtziel Natur in german) cooperation to promote sustainable mobility and slow tourism in the Graubünden parks. Destination Nature encourages visitors to travel and discover the Swiss National Park, the Parc Ela, the Beverin Regional Nature Park, the Biosfera Val Müstair, the Parco Val Calanca (candidate) and the UNESCO World Heritage Swiss Tectonic Arena Sardona in an environmentally friendly way by using public transport.
For this purpose we create and communicate travel packages including attractive public transport prices. Innovative mobility solutions offer flexible and sustainable mobility on site: The GraubündenPASS offers free public transport to the visitors and the AlpenTaxi and BusAlpin make sure you make it to the doorstep of your final destination.
In addition, the "A free return ticket" offer enables you to visit selected nature park events with a single ticket. With the stamp of the organizer, the ticket is also valid for the free return journey.
Hotel guests are also catered for. In the Grisons parks, hotel guests can book free public transport on two selected days thanks to the Destination Nature Package.
The idea of Destination Nature has been a huge success in Germany: The cooperation was started in 2001 by the environmental associations BUND, NABU and VCD, as well as the Deutsche Bahn. Owing to the cross-border cooperation between the Swiss Parks Network and Fahrtziel Natur Germany the initiative was widened to the pilot region of Graubünden.
Sustainable mobility and soft tourism are at the centre: leave your car behind for the next trip and do your share to promote sustainable and conscientious travelling – that is the only way that the diversity of the landscape and the different and rare animal and plant species have a future.
On May 23, 2007, nineteen park projects founded the association Swiss Parks Network on the Chasseral. The network is an umbrella organisation which represents the interests of its members and assists them in establishing and operating parks and in ensuring their quality in the long-term.More information
For over 125 years, The RhB have developed their railway network in Graubünden. The two panoramic trains Bernina and Glacier Express captivate visitors from all over the world. The railway lines and their extrodinary civil engineering structures merge perfectly with the landscape. The Bernina and Albula lines are even part of the UNESCO world heritage.More information
Unlike other transport associations, the ATE Swiss Association for transport and environment is also an environmental organisation. It supports clean, safe and efficient mobility and encourages the population to combine various means of transportation.More information
