The 2.5 km long snowshoe tour starts at the Orden parking lot, opposite the Baldini family's manor house. At first it is flat until the Salecina vacation home, then the path continues to the left of the winter hiking trail,  through the snowy forest until the frozen Alpsee Cavloc. From the lake, continue towards Fornotal until you reach the Plan Canin clearing. Those seeking solitude and tranquility will find the second section of the trail between the lake, the alp and Plan Canin particularly suitable. The way back can either be chosen via the same route or the snowshoes are strapped onto the backpack  and you follow the winter hiking trail back to the starting point.

 

Author’s recommendation

As the paths do not pass restaurants, it is advisable to take a small backpack with snacks. In Maloja itself, some restaurants offer delicious local specialities.
