La riqueza ambiental del Parque de Redes se manifiesta en una multitud de paisajes y contrastes. Pueden observarse formaciones de origen glaciar, como morrenas o circos, formas kársticas en cuevas y lapiaces; amplios campos de pasto, montes y frondosas masas boscosas. Redes cuenta con una superficie arbolada que ocupa el 40% del territorio. Destacan cumbres como el Picu Torres, el Retriñón, la Peña' l Vientu, Cantu l' Osu o el Tiatordos. La acción de los ríos ha dado lugar a la aparición de valles abiertos que forman grandes vegas en sus fondos o a los impresionantes desfiladeros de roca caliza, como el del río Alba o el de los Arrudos. Las vegas de Redes son de impresionante belleza. Aislada por los contrafuertes montañosos, a 1.215 metros, se encuentra la vega de Brañagallones, donde el antiguo albergue de cazadores se ha convertido en un hotel. Fue declarado Reserva de la Biosfera en 2001.
