Details

Description

The first 850 metres in altitude are quickly overcome, as you can take the cable car from Scuol to Motta Naluns. If you feel like it and have the energy, you can also pedal up via Ftan and Prui. From Motta Naluns there are still about 300 metres of altitude to climb.

Via Alp Clünas, you pass Muot da l'Hom, where you have a magnificent view of the valley and the mountains opposite with Piz Lischana and Piz Pisoc. Now follows a flowing and long single trail that runs along a steep flank. Despite the magnificent view of Tarasp Castle, concentration is required, as you pass sharp rock jags and sometimes over crunchy block passages.

In the mountain restaurant Prümaran Prui you can fortify yourself and recover. Afterwards, various single-trail variants lead to Ftan. If you like hairpin bends, you can curve down to the Inn on single trails. The route then leads along the river back to Scuol.

Geheimtipp

The detour from Ftan in the direction of Adrez to the Pra da Punt bridge is worthwhile, as a surprise awaits every biker there!
