During the summer months a wide variety of walks and a multitude of plants await visitors.

July and August are the ideal moment to visit the National Park. All the trails are accessible; days are long and the temperature agreeable. Flowers in bloom, colourful butterflies – a feast for the eyes.
In the higher regions too, many plants flower during the summer months of July and August.
In areas lying between 2000 and 3000m most flowering plants bloom during the second half of July. In high mountainous regions flowering can be delayed until well into August, according to snow conditions. Depending on the weather, the main flowering season may be delayed by 2 to 3 weeks.

For the higher alpine walks, summer is the best season.

By the end of July even the highest routes in the National Park are practicable, provided hikers are suitably equipped. The highest accessible point in the Park is Piz Quattervals (3165m). Only experienced mountain walkers should attempt this climb however.
Red deer, chamois and ibex withdraw to the higher, cooler regions in summer. They are most active early or later in the day, when the sun is not so strong.


These red deer in the Trupchun valley regulate their body temperature by cooling themselves in the snow.
