The 8 km long circular trail in Zernez is ideal as a training route for both trained and racing skiers. The trail starts at the sports and cross-country centre in the middle of Zernez and offers ambitious cross-country skiers a challenging and varied circular trail over a length of 8 km with about 250 metres of altitude. After cross-country skiing, a visit to the family pool or a detour to the National Park Centre is recommended.

Author’s recommendation

Refreshments are available at the starting and finishing points at the Center da Sport restaurant. Cloakrooms are available free of charge. Cross-country ski hire directly at the start of the trail. The showers in the family pool can be used for CHF 5. The pool offers an outdoor pool with current channel, bubble massage loungers, standing bubble pool, underwater massage jets and splash showers with pleasantly warm water temperatures of 34 degrees.
