Tour description

Walk beside the road leading to the Val Fex, past the Hotel Waldhaus, to Vaüglia. Here you turn right, away from the road and through a primeval forest. The hiking trail takes you past an upland moor, in front of Alp Petpreier, and on to the Muott’Ota ridge, from where you can enjoy a superb view over Lake Sils and of the imposing Piz da la Margna. Your next destination is the first pronounced crest, after which you cross wide expanses of Alpine meadows down to the valley floor. You can return to Sils by horse-drawn carriage from outside the Hotel Fex, or hike through the hamlets of Curtins, Crasta and Platta and the impressive rock gorge back to the picturesque little village of Sils Maria.


Option A: Shortly after the Alp da Segl, the trail heads off to the right. Here you can walk to the end of the Val Fex in around half an hour (Plaun Vadret). Once you have reached the Hotel Fex, you continue to Sils Maria either on foot or by horse-drawn carriage.
