The trail starts at the “Berggasthaus Arfina” restaurant. A short but strenuous hike brings you to the „Clunersee” plateau in the middle of an untouched winter wonderland, just minutes beyond the chalets. You can see the “Walserdorf St. Antönien” far in the distant northeast. Ironically but fittingly, St. Antönien invites guests with its slogan: «Behind the moon, to the left...» (meaning the end of the world can be seen from St. Antönien). Under a seemingly endless blue sky, snowshoe hikers walk across sparkling snow and pass by chalets buried in the deep new snow, surrounded by majestic mountain peaks which separate the plains from the “Schanfigg” valley. Everyday life is left behind and each step brings you closer to nature in the “Heuberge”.
Clunerseen: the place where frogs and ducks “say good night” in the summertime. The wide plains around the two morainal lakes include several wetlands of national significance. Rare animals and plants that over time have become highly specialized in surviving in these conditions can be found there as well.
