The Nanos mountains are rich in fauna and flora. In the Southern and Western foothills of Nanos a 2632 ha area is protected as a landscape park. The area has old beech forest with a lot of dead wood and open terrain that is attractive for many birds. Among the birds you can encounter are Golden Eagle, White-backed Woodpecker, Black Woodpecker, Eurasian Wryneck, Rock Bunting, Cirl Bunting, Common Raven, Common Rock Thrush, and Rock Partridge. The area is also of botanical interest.



From Podnanos a 15 km winding road leads up. When you arrive in the higher area, you can choose from various well-signposted dirt roads that are passable with a normal car. You can park almost everywhere along the street.
