From the train station we start in the direction of the church to the eastern exit of the village. An underpass leads safely under the railway line and Engadinerstrasse. With a steady incline, first past the last two Lavin farms to the first hill, where the path divides. From this hill, it is worth taking a look back to Lavin, which nestles from this perspective on the slope above the Inn. Both paths lead to Guarda, the left continues on a steady incline, the right path goes flat and in some curves following the slope straight ahead, before it then flows over a slightly larger slope back into the upper winter hiking trail. Almost exactly in the middle between Lavin and Guarda (after the short forest) you pass through the former settlement of Gonda. In winter, this can only be recognized by the slightly higher snow piles in the terrain under which the cairns of the former houses pile up. After a further ascent over the terraced slopes, the path turns left to the bridge over the mountain stream Clozza, which at this point also forms the municipal border between the two municipalities Zernez and Scuol. Soon after, you reach the road and the entrance to Guarda. The PostBus stop can be reached by turning left at the church. A tour of Guarda with the beautiful Engadine houses and squares is highly recommended. The PostBus runs several times a day to the guarda train station below, from where you finally have a connection back to Lavin or Scuol.


Take plenty of time for a village tour of Guarda. Engadine houses with sgraffito, winding alleys and rustic refreshment stops invite you to linger.


The tour was evaluated in favorable weather conditions, the current weather conditions and weather forecasts must be observed before the start of the tour.
