Golden larches, blue sky, the first snow ...

With the coming of autumn, the days shorten and the temperature drops. Nights can be frosty and the first snows fall in the upper regions. Footpaths may be frozen in places, and walkers should tread carefully. Before setting out on walks in the higher regions, please enquire about walking conditions at the National Park Centre.

The annual highlight in the National Park - the red deer rut - when hundreds of stags can be heard roaring.

Alongside the magnificent display of the golden larches, the roar of the rutting stags in autumn is the highlight of the year within the region of the National Park. From mid-September to about 5th October, red deer congregate in their traditional rutting areas, such as the Val Trupchun. Many visitors come to witness this impressive event.
