The striking, wild and intact natural landscape on the eastern edge of the national park impresses from the beginning of the tour. The tour connects the Lower Nagadine capital Scuol with the upper Val Müstair on the shortest and probably most attractive route. Through the impressive Val S-charl past the picturesque miners' village from the time of ore mining, the route leads to the highest pine forest in Europe and on over the Pass da Costainas into Val Müstair. The tour through the Val S-charl and over the Pass da Costainas is characterized by a unique and intact natural and cultural landscape along a mountain stream, through sparse larch, pine and pine forests, in the middle of attractive Alps and rugged three-thousand-metre peaks. In the hamlets of S-charl and Lü, it is worth taking a break.


The Alp Astras and the catered Alp Champatsch invite you to take a refreshing break in midsummer.


On high-altitude sections, snowfields are possible until the summer months.

The tour was evaluated in favorable weather conditions, the current weather conditions and weather forecasts must be observed before the start of the tour. This tour does not place any special demands on driving safety and driving skills.
