This demanding day tour starts in Laax Staderas. At Murschetg the ascent towards Plaun begins. The tour leads over the bridge of the mountain stream, past the fireplace and on towards Nagens. At the Nagens mountain station, the tour heads west on natural paths towards Vorab until it reaches the edge of the Vorab glacier.Afterwards the same route takes you back to Nagens mountain station and from there to Grauberg Station. From here you can see the Untere Segnesboden. The trail continues past the Segneshütte. Then the steep descent begins down to Startgels and on to Flims. From Flims you can take the main road to Staderas to your starting point. You can eat at the Alp Nagens and the Segneshütte.

During the main season, a shuttle bus with bike transport (limited capacity) is available up to Nagens. The first 1000 meters of altitude difference are a gift!

Endurobikers we recommend the single trail descent on the Vorab Trail. The former is at the highest point of the tour, also the Vorab Glacier

Author’s recommendation

Visit the visitor pavilion on Segnesboden to understand how the Alps were formed - Shuttle bus with bike transport - Refreshments available.
