From Zuoz railway station, the tour first leads down to the other side of the river to the golf course and along the treeline to S-chanf. Outside S-chanf, a natural road leads left under the tracks and diagonally up into the forest towards Chapella. At the turnoff down to Chapella, follow the hiking trail to Susauna. From Susauna, a gravel road leads in the direction of the Scaletta Pass, an important traffic route during the mule-train times. The first stretch to Alp Pignaint is a beautiful natural road, then the road get steeper and the condition deteriorates until you reach the Alp Funtauna. The return journey is on the same road to Susauna. After Susauna, take the road to Chapella. Ride a short distance on the main road before a natural road leads up to the right to S-chanf. Through the quaint Engadin village of S-chanf, the trail branches off to the right at the end of the village. Another short climb and then down to Zuoz and past the beautiful village square back to the station.

Author’s recommendation

The Val Susauna is particularly beautiful in autumn, when the larches shine golden.
