Beautiful trail for nature lovers along the only unspoilt valley river in Switzerland. Fascinating landscapes and flowering meadows enrich the run.

From the village centre in Sta. Maria we follow the signpost to Muglin Mall. After the mill we meet the Rombach stream. The trail winds along the stream up the valley. After about 1.5 km the trail branches off to the left and leads out of Valchava. Before the valley road, we branch off to the right over a bridge. There is a mineral water spring on the left after the bridge. Then we walk to the cross-country skiing centre. The trail leads through the plain of Fuldera. After crossing the Rombach stream, we continue through a floodplain forest. After the subway of the main road we go onto a large plain along the river. Then we cross the road in Tschierv Orasom and follow the Rombach again. Here you can end the tour with a refreshing drink on the sun terrace of the Hotel Al Rom.

 

If you still like, walk up to the right to the old part of the village of Tschierv, cross the village centre and follow the small stream into the spring area. Here you can cool your feet in the fresh spring water.
