The protected area of the Pfyn Forest in the regional nature park Pfyn-Finges - one of the largest pine forests in the Alps - is a protected area of national importance. The Pfyn Forest borders one of the last wild branches of the Rhone and is home to a large number of animals and plants. Since 1997, the region has been under protection and in the 2000's, the local communities founded an association to develop soft tourism in the reserve and to establish a nature park. Since November 2005, the Pfyn Forest has been proudly named regional nature park.
