Description

The stage starts at the foot of the highest mountain in the Rätikon, the Schesaplana. After a short section on the alpine road, a hiking trail follows, which leads past the Fasons Alpine Museum. Let yourself be inspired by this museum for a short while. Afterwards you hike on a varied path to the alp Stürvis and further to Cani. There you reach the Alpweg, which leads to Seewis village. In Seewis, great restaurants await you, where you can toast to the Prättigauer Höhenweg. You will also find good connections to public transport.

The official route continues over the Fadärastein, the steep winding path down to the picturesque Malans in the Bündner Herrschaft to Landquart.

Book the Prättigauer Höhenweg incl. overnight stay online in just a few clicks!

Rent a scooter in the Schesaplanahütte and enjoy the 1,000 metres of altitude difference down to Seewis Dorf with a rapid descent.
