Take the Corvatsch cable car up to the Murtèl middle station. Note that bikes are only transported on the first three gondolas in the morning and from 3.05 pm. Below the passerelle from the gondola station to the restaurant, the road leads down to Lej Murtèl and Lej da Fuorcla. Soon you reach Margun Surlej with the Alpetta restaurant. A stop is a good idea: From here you have a beautiful view of the fabulous mountain panorama and the Upper Engadin lakes. You quickly reach Alp Surlej and from there it is only a stone's throw to the Corvatsch valley station in Surlej.

Zuerst top, dann nur noch flop! Wir waren super enttäuscht von dieser Tour. Der Ticketpreis von 37.50 mit Bike ohne Halbtax ist happig. Der erste Viertel ab der Mittelstation ist ein absolut genialer Trail mit tollen Passagen. Die restlichen 75% ist eine langweilige Kiesstrasse die als Wanderweg angegeben ist, welche bis zur Talstation führt 😕
