The Scuol Alps, which were important during the past centuries, are situated in Val S-charl. This also includes Alp Sesvenna. The route to the alp takes you along the river.

From the bus stop in the middle of the small mountain village of S-charl (at 1800 metres above sea level) the path leads in a north-easterly direction to Alp Sesvenna. The route runs along the river. After about a third of the tour you will reach the Pradè clearing, which is ideal for barbecuing. The path continues slightly uphill to the far end of the valley to Alp Sesvenna. This tour is also suitable for families.
