From Maloja you can either start at the Restaurant Longhin, as recommended here, or you can start at one of the many other entrances to Maloja. Afterwards, the route is relatively flat to Isola, where you take a roundabout before turning off towards Maloja in the woods again at "La Palza". Attention: brake before the turn-off to avoid falling down the narrow bend! Now comes the heart of this round: high up, high up you go through the beautiful forest. A rapid descent follows. The more leisurely final section is the circuit over Orden. Here again, it is hilly and, especially in the morning, sunny and warm.

Author’s recommendation

In the late morning or late afternoon the excursion is sunniest.
