The winter hike between the charming Walser village Monbiel, Alp Garfiun and Alp Novai is an insider tip not only among locals.

The Monbiel parking lot, reachable by bus or car from Klosters Platz in ten minutes, is the starting point of the winter hike. From there, the trail leads along the Landquart over the Pardenner Boden and below the Garfiun Alp further over an open area to the Novai Alp. At Alp Novai you have reached the furthest point of the winter hike. Now it goes back over a small loop to the Alp Garfiun. A detour to the rustic alpine hut, which is about a five-minute walk from the winter hiking trail, is definitely worthwhile. Not only because of the delicious Grisons specialties. The view is also fantastic. Strengthened, we then continue to Pardenner Boden. This time we turn right and the trail leads us over the Schwendi out of the valley to Monbiel, where the great winter hike ends.

Author’s recommendation

A detour to the wonderfully situated Alp Garfiun is always worthwhile!
