From Falera to Ladir there is a cozy family-friendly walk. The starting point of this tour is in Falera. From this beautiful Grisons  village the path leads west across lush meadows, then through the shady forest to Val Cafegns. From here you climb up to the shack Laneras. Continue the hike without any significant slope over Prau Davon to Bual. Magnificent here is the view into the Foppa and the surrounding area. Down the valley it goes to Ladir.

Author’s recommendation

In Ladir, the holiday home Lazy Mountain with its sun terrace and Grisons kitchen invites you to linger.
