This tour offers an interesting cross section from Lenzerheide through the Schanfigg to Davos. Geology takes priority on the first section, whilst the second follows the footsteps of the Walser settlers. And in the middle, the tourist resort of Arosa beckons.

This two-day hike starts at Lenzerheide with the glistening Heidsee lake and lush green Alpine pastures. The focal point of the tour is clearly Arosa – which grew from a Walser settlement into today’s tourist destination, at the end of a valley that curves in a semi-circle down to Chur. It’s particularly fascinating to discover Arosa from above, on the Parpaner Rothorn. On the descent you cross an almost moon-like landscape. Up above rust-red ferruginous cliffs dominate (Arosa has a history of ore mining), lower down, by the latest at the Älplisee lake, limestone grey mixes with green fields.

The character of the second stage is very different: traditionally-kept Walser alps are surrounded by pastures which in early summer glow Alpine-rose red with every ray of sunshine. After Alp Medergen and before the key point of the tour – a long metal stairway – views stretch down to Sapün, the link between Schanfigg and Davos, once not only of major importance for trading cattle and other goods but also for the free movement of people between the two valley communities.

Hallo "Wildzelten" ist offiziell verboten und wir können daher keine Empfehlung abgeben. Wir empfehlen daher die Übernachtung in einer der Tourismusorganisationen und danken fürs Verständnis. Viele Grüsse Arosa Tourismus

Leider hatten wir mit dem Wetter total Pech. Es hat durchgehend geregnet und wir konnten grade mal 3 Bäume weit sehen. Dadurch war die Motivation etwas gedämpft und an manchen Stellen war es sehr rutschig. Bei der ersten Etappe nach ca 5 km kommt man an eine Kuhweide. Dort gehen die Schilder von dem Weg 54 leider in die falsche Richtung. Wir haben leider den falschen Weg genommen, also unbedingt auf die Karte schauen. Bei schönem Wetter ist es bestimmt ein toller Weg, wir mussten leider abbrechen.
