Guided Day Hike Between Switzerland & Austria
St. Antönien, nestled in the heart of Graubünden and at the border with Austria, a place that stands still in time with its authentic mountain houses, lush greenery and freshwater streams.
A stunning hike, rich in history and geology, that will make us walk along beautiful mountain lake, spend time in Switzerland and in Austria, and cross three mountain passes. The dark mountain ranges of crystalline Silvretta rock on one side of the valley contrast with the lighter limestone massif on the other, which makes the landscape even more dramatic! Several opportunities to stop for a tea or coffee in charming mountain huts.
We meet at 10:00 at Berghaus Sulzfluh to start the beautiful hike. If you arrive earlier, you can have a coffee or tea at this charming venue.
