We start at the Serras bus stop, or the parking lot at the cross-country skiing centre. For 300 m we follow the road towards S-charl. Then we turn left and cross the Inn. Passing the Lischana Fountain (here you have the opportunity to fill the beverage bottle with a natural sports drink). After 100m, before crossing the creek, we turn right and follow the hiking trail. Shortly after a right turn, a path bends to the left. This leads us in the zigzag course to a branch with a red bench at 1,314 m. Ü.M. We take the middle way to Bellavista (beautiful view) to the village of Scuol. From here we continue along the hiking trail until we reach a paved road. Here we turn left and after a few meters we take the hiking trail to the riding stable San Jon, which we reach in a short time. We turn right and follow the hiking trail to S-charl along the stables. Shortly after the parking lot of San Jon we take the path left, cross the road to S-charl. After 600m we reach the road to S-charl again, which we follow for about 800 m. Here a narrow path turns to "Avrona" and we enjoy the downhill down to Clemgia. On the opposite side of the river begins the Swiss National Park. After the bridge follows a short ascent to Avrona. Here are often chamois on the grass. We cross the garden of the Gasthaus Avrona, which is like to stop.

From here, there are several options:

Variant 1: Back to Scuol via Vulpera

In front of the fountain at the Gasthaus Avrona we turn right to the mountain school Avrona and follow the contacted hiking trail towards Vulpera – Scuol. The nicely run path leads us through the typical Engadine forest in some curves to Vulpera. From here it is only a few meters to our destination in Gurlaina, Scuol.

variant 2: via Lai Nair Tarasp

Just at the car park Gasthaus Avrona, Vis-a-vis from the fountain, a forest path begins easily hidden. First it goes a few meters relatively steep afterwards follows a flow trail with pleasant incline along the Cretan until we reach the wider track. We follow this and soon we see the beautiful Lai Nair on the right. After passing the lake, we reach a path that turns right. We follow this path towards Tarasp. Near the large antenna we follow the path to the hill with the cross, from here we have a beautiful view of the castle Tarasp and the Lai da Tarasp. On the hill we follow the sign for Sgné (pronounced like snow). We cross the main road and the hamlet of Sgné and follow the path towards Florins. Before Florins, at The Bänkli, we turn right and follow another wonderfully run trail first curvy flat and finally curvy again. Soon we reach the Inn at the Trinkhalle/Büvetta. We cross the Inn Bridge and take the hiking trail on the left side of the Inn. In front of the local Büvetta (refreshment in summer) we cross the Inn again and follow the path on the right side of the Inn to the end of the tour in Gurlaina.
