This varied tour starts in Seewis village (those who feel like it can already get on their bikes at Seewis station and cycle into the village). From Seewis the tour follows the tarred road to Fadära and through Pilldetta to Valcaus. At the Maiensäss Valcaus alpine hut it is worth taking a break and some refreshments while appreciating the magnificent panoramic views of the near Prättigau region. This stretch runs via Guora and then along a technically easy downhill back to Seewis.
