The well-marked trail leads from Klosters across lush alpine meadows to St. Antönien, where the slogan "behind the moon, to the left..." is advertised with a wink. Along the way you will encounter grazing cows enjoying the fine alpine herbs. Below the limestone walls, which are up to 500 meters high, the well-signposted path continues along the national border. At Gafalljoch you leave the high-altitude trail and branch off in the direction of Sassauna, where the last meters of altitude are "destroyed" with the Fanas cable car.

The tour can be booked as a package and is also suitable as a family tour. And with a few additional summit ascents, the hike also puts a long-lasting smile on the faces of ambitious mountain hikers.


Stage 1: Klosters - St. Antönien

Stage 2: St. Antönien - Carschina hut SAC
