At Ardez station, take a direct route north to the main road and follow it east to the edge of the village. Here the path turns left and leads over the field to the right past the schoolhouse and in two bends to the junction towards Chanoua. Already here you can see an impressive view of the castle ruins over the roofs of Ardez into the Val Sampuoir and on Sur En on the opposite side of the valley. From here, the path climbs steadily to the ruins of the Sust/Säumerstation Chanoua, where a short rest with a view towards the Upper Engadine is worthwhile. A few meters further down the valley on the right side of the Inn you can see the proud castle Tarasp and the hamlets of the village. The trail follows here for about 2 km the Fahrstarsse and leads at the parking place in front of the Hotel Paradies on the right into the forest, past the hotel and the old mill to the hill Nügla on the southwestern outskirts of Ftan, the destination of the hike. From Ftan, sports buses run every half-hour to Scuol, from where the train runs hourly to Ardez.


If time permits, a short detour to the castle hill of the Steinsberg ruin is recommended in Ardez. Or in Ftan a visit to the toboggan run and airboard slope at the Ftan-Prui chairlift.


The path is prepared after each snowfall. Please note the status reports in the winter sports report. The tour was evaluated in favorable weather conditions, the current snow and weather conditions must be considered before the start.
