The hike offers an insight into a typical region once settled by the Walser people, with Furna, a dispersed settlement high above the Prättigau and its scattered homesteads, agriculture and forestry, and the Fadeuer as a rewarding panoramic mountain summit.
The starting point for the hiking circuit is the Walser village of Furna, which is accessed via a mountain road from Pragg-Jenaz. The trail takes us across lush meadows upwards past scattered farmsteads until we reach a track beyond Scäri, which we follow off to the left. Shortly thereafter, it opens up views of the hilly, grassy high-plateau with the Berghaus Scära mountain hut. From here the mountain trail continues on upwards, rising gently as it traverses the slopes, circling the Wannenspitz and Fadeuer,and opening up the view into the valley running parallel, with its alpine meadows.
Before we cross the ridge after the Stelli hut and return to the Furna side in the direction of Alp Sattel, it is well worth the short climb to the summit of the Fadeuer, a vantage point with spectacular panoramic views. The final section of the trail takes us across pastures, at times without a path, then on an ordinary track, winding its way in hairpin bends from the Alp Sattel down through the forest to Hinterberg and across the road back to Furna.
After the Stelli hut on the ridge, keep right until you reach the incision. From there descent.
In the case of mowed meadows, a good sense of direction is required, as the meadow paths are hardly visible. Often it also goes pathless over alpine pastures. There are very few mountain hiking trail markings in the whole area between the signposts! A detailed hiking map is recommended.
The starting point of the circular hike is the Walser village of Furna, which is accessible via a mountain road from Pragg-Jenaz. On lush pastures, the hike leads uphill past scattered farmsteads until you follow a road to the left after Scäri, which after a short time reveals a view of a hilly, grassy plateau with the Scära mountain house. From here, the mountain trail leads gently uphill, traversing the Wannenspitz and Fadeuer
and opens up a view of the parallel valley with its Alps. Before you cross the ridge again after the Stellihütte over to the Furna side in the direction of Alp Sattel, the short summit ascent to the Fadeuer, a vantage point with a magnificent panoramic view of the mountains, is worthwhile. Over pastureland, partly pathless, partly on a road, the last part of the trail leads to Alp Sattel in hairpin bends through the forest down to Hinterberg and back to Furna via the road.
