The tour begins with the steep ascent from Samnaun village to the Zeblasjoch. Following the altitude curve, the route heads towards Fuorcla Val Gronda to point 2554. From here there is a longer pushing passage to Fuorcla Val Gronda. The Heidelberger Hütte is a German hut on Swiss soil, which is run by Austrians. After a rest, the route descends along the extensive Fimba Valley to Gampenalp. From here there is another steep ascent back to the Zeblasjoch. You return to Samnaun village via the same path as the ascent.

Instead of returning to Samnaun from Gampenalp via Zeblasjoch, you can also go to the middle station of the Silvretta cable car further down in the Fimba valley. From here you can take the cable cars back to Samnaun.

No e-bike transport from Idalp to the Viderjoch!

Last connection from the middle station of the Silvretta cable car to Samnaun at 3 pm.
