Details

Description

The well-marked path leads from Klosters over lush alpine pastures to St. Antönien, where with a wink with the slogan "behind the moon, left..." is advertised. Along the way you will meet grazing cows that enjoy the fine alpine herbs. Below the limestone walls, which are up to 500 metres high, the well-signposted path continues along the national border. At the Gafalljoch you leave the high-altitude trail and branch off towards 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 conjures up a long-lasting smile on the faces of ambitious mountain hikers.
