Tour description

This trail leads to the equalising reservoir at Zermeiggern, passes the Zermeiggern Chapel, and then joins the beautiful path that runs into the Furgg Valley. This path was already being used hundreds of years ago by tradespeople travelling between Italy and Switzerland. At Stafel there is a small Alpine pasture that is still farmed to this day.

This beautiful trail leads from Saas-Almagell to Zermeiggern. The use of snowshoes is recommended. Once the Furggbach stream has joined the Saaser Vispa river, the trail continues along the left-hand side of the valley up to Stutzbode and Stafel. The trail offers some fantastic views of the Furggbach gorge. After crossing the bridge at Stafel, the path forks off westwards and leads over Furggu and Chalchofe to Elschgrabe before descending to Chapf and Furggstalden. For the descent, you can take the chairlift from Furggstalden to Saas-Almagell.


Alternative A: Just before the huts at Furggu, the trail leads up the mountain to the lift. Once past the lift, the trail zigzags up to Heidbodmen (duration: 1.5 hours). You can then make your way back down the mountain by chairlift.


Pay attention to the chairlift’s operating times and to the weather conditions.
The trail crosses the ski slope in some sections.
