A tour for hikers in good shape, who will be rewarded all the more for it. The bus (by appointment, tel. +41 (0)81 422 11 97) runs daily to Sardasca, the starting point of the hike. From here the trail climbs steadily up to the Seetalhütte SAC hut above the lake and on to the Schottensee lake at an altitude of just under 2,500 m. The highest point is reached on the Schottenseefürggli and the descent follows in the direction of Schlappin, past the Hüenersee lake and the Kübliser Alp. The cosy restaurants "Erika" and "Gemsli" invite you for a stopover before you set off on the last four kilometres to Klosters Dorf. Alternatively, there is a bus from Schlappin to Klosters on request.

 

Seetalsee

Beautiful mountain lake next to the Seetalhütte SAC.

 

Schottenseefürggli

The highest station on this tour is also a great vantage point.

 

Hüenersee

Wonderful mountain lake with turquoise-blue water surrounded by a fascinating mountain world.

 

Schlappin

In the small Walser settlement of Schlappin, which borders on the Madrisa area, there are two restaurants offering overnight accommodation as well as food and drink. The beautiful lake and picnic areas invite you to linger.

 

Note(s)

In Davos Klosters, hikers and mountain bikers use the same paths without restrictions. This applies to the whole of Canton Graubünden and is unique in the Alps.
