From Langwies the trail ascents through a romantic valley, deep canyons, across high bridges and along a wild river. Above the tree line the path continues to the small and picturesque Wals village Dörfji. Then the trail leads along scattered Wals houses and finally steeply rises to the guesthouse Heimeli. After a delicious meal and refreshing drinks you may enjoy a long sled ride back down to Langwies.

Author’s recommendation

Take time to enjoy a long stay at the guesthouse Heimeli.
