Details

Description

The tour begins with a steady ascent from Scuol (1280 m) via Ftan (1630 m) to Prui (2060). From Prui, the route continues on the high trail to the Motta Naluns mountain station (caution: scooter two-way traffic between Scuol and Prui).

The next ascent to the start of the single trail at the reservoir (2370 m) is strenuous due to the nature of the trail. The crisp single track that follows has a few difficult sections (no fear of heights required), passes Alp Clünas to Muot da l'Hom and ends after a short descent at Alp Laret. Here you can take a break in the alpine restaurant with a view of the Lower Engadine Dolomites.

The trail then leads along the forest road to Ftan/Ftan Pitschen through overgrown rocks and fairytale-like woodland. The last section to Scuol is recommended, depending on your technical ability, on the ascent route or on the challenging single trails of the descent Ftan - Baraigla - Nairs.

Geheimtipp

Alternatively, the loop can only be made from Ftan, or the first ascent can be made from Scuol with the cable car to Motta Naluns.
