Easy - this snowshoe trail really is. In very easy terrain this round tour leads over the clearings of the Maraneralp. It is suitable for everyone who likes it comfortable and still doesn't want to do without an alpine panorama.

The name already makes it clear: This snowshoe tour on the panoramic high plateau between Weisshorn, Prätsch and Litzirüti is not strict - and therefore the ideal introduction to the nature experience of snowshoe hiking. In summer it is one of the highest 18-hole golf courses in Europe. Despite its cosiness, the alpine mountain panorama is a must: As you trudge over treeless sections and through light fir woods, the view of the Arosa mountain world becomes clear again and again. Tjejer Fluh, Hauptij, Brüggerhorn, Weisshorn, Hörnli, Erzhorn, Schafrügg or the highest peak of the Plessur Alps, the Aroser Rothorn, can be seen from here. The area, which is roamed on quiet soles, can be described as one of the most beautiful viewing platforms in Arosa. The trail can be reached comfortably with the free local bus.

 

Author’s recommendation

Our moonlight snowshoe hike is very popular. Explore the stars without disturbing artificial light.
