Guided Snowshoeing Weekend in Safiental (Graubünden)

Home Tours - Touring Monkeys Snowshoeing Guided Snowshoeing Weekend in Safiental (Graubünden)

Join us for a wonderful snowshoeing weekend in the wild and untouched Safien valley, part of the Natural Park Beverin in Graubünden. The Safien valley begins at the famous and gorgeous Ruinaulta canyon (Rheinschlucht), and takes you into a fairytale landscape. No wonder why Walser people stayed there!

This trip is led by Celine Kahn, mountain leader.

What’s the plan?

Saturday – Camana Hütta

We meet at Safien, Abzw. Camana at 11:10 to start our 2-day snowshoe tour in the beautiful Safien valley. On this first day we start with a climb through the forest followed by an open area, all the way to Camana Hütta. We hike down on the other side and catch a bus to Turrahus, at the end of the valley. Dinner and night at the charming guest house Turrahus.

Technical info: 6km – 650m ascent – 650m descent

Sunday – Strätscherhorn 2555m

After an energising breakfast, we get ready for this second exciting day with a longer hike in the Safien valley. The loop to Strätscherhorn is really wild and stunning, and the views of the valley and the surrounding peaks from the summit are breathtaking! Return to the guest house in the afternoon for everyone to catch their bus back home.

Technical info: 12km – 900m ascent – 900m descent
