Hike through a true masterpiece of engineering. The mountain hike follows the banks of the Albula river and several times crosses the railway line, which along this stretch features the boldest of railway routes. The Bahnerlebnisweg (Railway experience trail) illustrates this 100-year-old railway engineering feat.

Author’s recommendation

Carry identification as this is a cross-border route.

Between Arnoga and the Umbrail pass, the route leads through Italy.
