This scenic route leads us from Arosa over the Durannapass into the Prättigau. From the Durannapass you have a wonderful view of the Prätttigau. After an approx. 3 km long descent we drive on the Bikemaster route (route 333) to the Fideriser Heubergen. The mountain house Arflina is ideal for a short stop before the last ascent to Arflinafurgga. From Arflinafurgga a short descent leads us to the Fanin Pass. Now it goes over a dreamlike descent to the Peisteralp. Via Pirigen we return to Langwies and from there back to Arosa. After rain, the stretch from the Durannapass to the Fideriser Heubergen can be a muddy affair.
