Comfortable ascend by cable car Hörnli. Dive in the magnificent mountain world and the intact na-ture of Arosa. Clear blue lakes reflect the glance of the mountains.
The beautiful hiking trail Innerarosa – Älplisee – Schwellisee – In-nerarosa starts with a comfortable ascend by cable car to the Hörnli. During the ascend you can watch the marmots. From Hörnli take the hiking trail in direction of Älplisee through the peak of the rocks of Arosa. When you passed the rocks, you reach the clear mountain lake Älplisee. The trail goes on through the Chlus – an exposed pass, secured by a steel cable – to a lonely Swiss stone pine, which is protected. There you already can catch a glimpse of the pearl of the Arosa mountain lakes, the Schwellissee. On a downward way you reach the Schwellissee. In a hot summer you can cool down by a swim in the lake. Follow the way back to In-nerarosa.
Board and lodging at the Hörnlihütte.
