The historically good fortune of Tambre was due to its close link with the Cansiglio state forest. Divided between the provinces of Belluno, Treviso and Pordenone, the ancient forest of the Doges is one of the most important environmental resources of the Veneto region.

Situated between the 1000 meters in altitude of the plateau and the 2250 meters in altitude of Mt. Cavallo, this natural lung consists of 7000 hectares of forests of beech, spruce and silver fir, and is part of the SIC areas – Site of Community Interest – and it is a Special Protection Area – ZPS included in the “Rete Natura 2000” ( Nature network) and therefore enjoys a special protectionist system that controls and limits the timber cutting.

The Cansiglio is also land of museums: the ecological Museum “Giovanni Zanardo” with naturalistic findings that describe the forest through its flora and fauna, the Alpine Botanical Garden “G. Lorenzoni” a wonderful naturalistic oasis, the “MUC”, Museum of Man in Cansiglio “Anna Vieceli” with the Cimbric ethnographic and culture center. The latter describes the human life in Cansiglio from prehistory up to the present, with particular attention to the history of the German- speaking population of the Cimbri that arrived in Cansiglio in the eighteenth century called by the Republic of Venice to work the timber, starting from the Plateau of Asiago and settling in some villages that can be still visited today.

The entire area offers many opportunities for those who want to live and active holiday and for those seeking relax. You can find many hiking or mountain bike trails where you can often spot examples of the rich population of deer and roe deer and admire the wonderful natural scenery.

The fully equipped wellness area with swimming pool and gym in the center of Tambre offers moments of complete relax.

In winter the area becomes the favorite destination for lovers of alpine skiing and cross-country skiing, but there are also snowshoes paths, while golfers can enjoy in Pian di Cansiglio a beautiful eighteen-hole field, particularly interesting for the natural roughness of the karst terrain that characterizes the region.
