From Samnaun, the only duty-free area in Switzerland, the trail leads over the Alptrider Sattel, towards Zeblasjoch, over the Fuorcla Val Gronda and down to the Heidelberger Hütte.
Distance 13.6 km
The tour starts at the top station of the world's first double-decker cable car on the Alp Trider Sattel. The high-level trail towards Ravaischer Salaas and towards Bergli passes dolines ("gypsum holes"). One continues walking over the Zeblasjoch, with a little luck one can see ibex or ptarmigan. The view into the extensive Fimba valley and the Fluchthorn is worthwhile. From Fuorcla Val Gronda at 2752 m above sea level, the path leads steadily down to the Heidelberger Hut.
