Already in November the cross-country skiing tracks at the reservoir lake Isel are ready to start the season. The cross-country skiing shuttle bus brings guests from the village centre to the tracks. The 7.5km cross-country skiing track leads through an amazing countryside of the Isel region at the foot of the Schiesshorn and the Schafrugg.

Public transport

Public transport friendly

The Rhaetian Railway leaves Chur to Arosa and back at hourly intervals. The cross-country skiing shuttle bus stops at the post square - only a few metres from the train station.

Getting there

 

Once you arrive in Chur, follow the sign posts to Arosa. At the village entrance, opposite the petrol station, turn left and follow sign posts towards the reservoir lake.

 

Parking

There is only a very limited number of parking spots at the reservoir lake. It is recommended to park at the car park Ochsenbühl which is located at the entrance of the village right after the Sports and Conference Centre to your left. The shuttle bus stop is only approx. 100m from the car park.
