This scenic trail runs from Casaccia to Soglio through lush, romantic and wild landscapes along the right side of Bregaglia Valley
"Via Panoramica" or "Sentiero Panoramico" - who cares for names? The path leads through lush and wildly romantic nature on the sunny side of the Bergell from Casaccia to Soglio. Here, spectacular views of the rugged three-thousand-metre peaks that separate Bregaglia from Italy open up again and again. Basically, it is easy to walk; but the differences in altitude of 414 m up and 770 m down should not be underestimated.
For those who would like to walk the entire panoramic path, on the second day, from Soglio continue towards Savogno.
A stop at Alp Durbegia - a small bistro that is open in summer and serves coffee and cakes, fresh drinks and food - is worthwhile.
From Casaccia, the trail leads to the west along the right side of the valley, passes over a bridge crossing the Maira River and continues through the flat meadows until you reach the reservoir in Löbbia. After the reservoir, follow the white striped markings that indicate the path. Once you reach the gentle slope of Barga, continue through the forest of conifers and birch trees to Roticcio. Afterwards, you will reach the river Aua da Mulina River, where the trail ascends for a short distance, first through small steep meadows, then again through pine forests. After a short descent, you will continue through a shady forest to Durbeggia, where you can stop to admire the impressive scenery.As you continue the majestic peaks rising opposite Bondasca Valley are increasingly awe-inspiring. After arriving at the edge of the forest, you cross the Valer River. A narrow path leads through meadows and forests to Pravis and then to Parlongh. The trail goes up and down, but it remains at a constant altitude almost to Soglio, where the trail rapidly descends. The trip takes about five hours.An alternative route is Via Bregaglia.
