The classic hike at Valposchiavo goes to Val da Camp, a valley that is listed in the federal inventory of landscape and cultural monuments of national importance. Pastures, elevated plains and lakes characterize this unique hike.
In Sfazù the hike starts along the road that goes upwards. After the first ascent one comes to Buril. The path climbs gently up to the next settlements Salva, Mottacalva, Lungacqua and Camp. Here the trails branch off towards the lakes Lagh da Saoseo and Lagh da Val Viola. From here one has free sight to Val Mera on the opposite side.
The trail leads downhill across an impressive area of landslide to the enchanted, deep blue lake Saoseo, then it continues gently downhill. Through a mixed coniferous forest with exuberantly growing bilberry bushes and fern one reaches the place of Terzana.
On easy hiking trails along the pastures one comes to the branch to Sfazù and descends to Val da Camp, in order to cross it. On the other side of the river the path goes steep upwards and reaches quite soon the holiday camp of Buril. The last 10 minutes to Sfazù can be done along the street.
Lagh da Saoseo:
The beautiful lake Lagh da Saoseo is situated between hiking trails and forests which are surrounded by an intense scent of moss and resin. Its colours vary between blue, turquoise, dark green and violet. From Alp Campo the lake can be reached within a 10 minute walk.
Variante A: When you reach the lake Lagh da Val Viola, you can continue towards the pass of Val Viola and then make a break at the refuge Rifugio Viola and eat a tasty polenta.
Variante B: If you would like to make a shorter hike, you just turn after Alp Camp towards the lake Lagh da Saoseo, instead of continuing the hike towards Lagh da Scispadus.
From Sfazù you follow the signs for «Camp». From Camp you follow the signs for «Lagh da Val Viola» until you come to the lake Val Viola. From there you follow the signs for «Lagh da Saoseo». Then you follow the signs for «Rifugio Saoseo SAC - Terzana/Sfazù-Terzana/Pozzulasc-Sfazù-Doss/Sfazù-Sfazù».
If you prefer to walk less, you may take the small bus that starts at Sfazù and drives to Lungacqua or Camp (booking compulsory, at least one hour in advance: +41 (0) 81 844 10 42 / +41 (0) 79 599 96 76).
