From Arosa we take the Froststrasse to Litzirüti and on to Langwies. From there the long ascent to the mountain inn Casanna starts, all on forest roads. The cuisine is so incredibly good that you will be rewarded for your efforts. The way back is either on the forest road again or, as recorded in the track, on the old Fondeier path. A beautiful single trail along the stream with a few difficult spots. In Langwies you can also take the Rhaetian Railway back to Arosa (runs every hour).

Let yourself be pampered in the mountain inn Casanna.
