The Arosa Trail 46 (AT 46) is the perfect challenge for advanced trail runners. With a distance of over 50km and almost 3,000m of altitude difference a high pulse frequency is guaranteed. The trail starts off like the AT 22 but has an additional crispy climb at the Strelapass - a 360° panoramic view to Arosa included.
