1st option: panorama trail:

The trail is often referred to as one of the most beautiful hiking trails in the canton of Graubünden. Nature lovers will be fascinated by the beautiful and diverse landscape that accompanies them at every step of the way. Photographers have the chance to see the famous breath-taking peaks of Val Bregaglia from different points of view along the way.

In the valley, a cultural-historical hike awaits you. For Borgonovo is the birthplace of the world-famous Alberto Giacometti. The Ciása Granda Valley Museum with the Sala Giacometti-Varlin is located in Stampa and in Coltura a visit to the Palazzo Castelmur is recommended. The paved path with a breath-taking view of the Sciora group and Pizzo Badile then leads up to Soglio.

Schöne Wanderung mit ein bisschen Nervenkitzel, nichts für Turnschuhwanderer, Wanderstock ist empfehlenswert, sehr gut ausgeschildert, aber Wege zum Teil sehr schlecht zwäg, grandiose Aussicht von idyllischen Waldlichtungen, die zum ausruhen einladen, eine Brätlistelle ca. in der Mitte der Strecke. Wer mehr Fitness will, macht die Tur in der Gegenrichtung. Sie ist aber auch so anstrengend genug.

Super schöne Wanderung. Zurück zur Natur kann man hier an vielen Stellen (Ställe) sehr gut sehen. Die Belohnung mit dem Blick über Soglio bei der Ankunft ist einfach nur grandios. Ich habe mich gefragt wieso vor X Jahren so viele Ställe auf dem Weg (in dieser Höhe und vor allem in diesem Gelände) gebaut wurden? Eindrücklich.
