Details

Description

The home village of the Schellen-Ursli is crossed and left in an easterly direction. Afterwards you reach Bos-cha via the historic Engadine road and then slightly sloping to the day's destination Ardez, at the eastern end of which the ruins of Steinsberg Castle watch over the valley are clearly visible.

Geheimtipp

If this stage is too short for you, we recommend a detour to the Munt d'Ardez or even further to Murtera Dadoura with a toboggan run to Ardez. Sledges are available at the top and can be returned to the Hotel Alvetern in Ardez.

This winter long-distance hike can be booked as a package including luggage transport from hotel to hotel. More information can be found here: scuol-zernez.com/viaengiadinawinter
