No matter if you feel like running or walking, if you bring your Nordic-Walking sticks or not, the Helsana Trail offers something for everyone - and thanks to the useful exercise boards, even advanced athletes might learn something new. The short trail Valsana starts in Maran and continues through the forest all the way down to the bottom station of the Weisshorn gondola and back up again via a different route.

Public transport

Public-transport-friendly

The Rhaetian Railway leaves Chur to Arosa and back at hourly intervals. As of the train station Arosa, take the local bus towards "Prätschli" and get off at the bus stop "Maran".

Getting there

Once you arrive in Chur, follow the sign posts Arosa. At the village entrance, opposite the petrol station, turn right and continue until you reach the U-turn right in front of the Golf and Sports Hotel Maran.

 

Parking

There is only a limited number of parking spots in Maran. Therefore we recommend you park at the car park Ochsenbühl (right next to the Sports and Conference Centre) and take the local bus to Maran.
