The Schellen-Ursli trail starts in Guarda in the village and leads along the sledge run up to the clearing «Plan dal Növ».

On the way you can read the first half of the Schellen-Ursli children's book on large boards. When you arrive at «Plan dal Növ», the «Maiensäss» awaits you with the entire book and you can finish the story.

To return we recommend a sledge ride just like Schellen-Ursli took in the book.

Sledges can be rented at Hotel Meisser in Guarda.
