The Madrisa Roundtour stands for an experience on this side and beyond the border. From Klosters, Switzerland, to Gargellen, Austria and back again. It is not only a hike but an experience of nature as well. To be pals with nature ... and this for two or three days. To calm down, to relax, to enjoy nature on signalled alpine paths. Take your time .......

2nd day. From Gargellen you walk to Vergalden, then into the valley through Valzifenztal to Ober-Valzifensalp. Going quite steep up you get to Schlappiner Joch where you cross the border. From here you can enjoy an easy and worth seeing hiking tour past Schwarz Bach and  Älpli to Zügenhüttli and to the alp of Saas. Descent to Klosters by cable railway.

Author’s recommendation

This tour can also be booked as a package called 'on smuggling tracks'. During the smuggling tour there is a number of tasks to be coped with, same as this was the case with real smugglers. You need to find nine depositories with smuggled goods as well as a customs hut, which nowadays is carried out with the help of the GPS. Besides smuggled goods and information about it worth knowing, the hiding-places also contain anecdotes about the lives of the smugglers. In addition these hiding-places supply you with the necessary information such as GPS-dates which lead you to the next depository and finally to the goal of the smuggling tour. You can get further information under www.schmugglerland.com
