Stage 6 Zernez - Susch - Lavin - (ascent 209m, descent 248m, duration 5 hours).
From Zernez the Via Engiadina leads along the Inn River on the valley floor. Below the rocks of Muottas da Clüs the path leads in a varied way over meadows and through small forest sections via Clüs up to a beautiful clearing with a view of Zernez and then down through the forest to «La Güstizia». Above the path the valley opens up. There you can see the pillars of a gallows that was in use until the middle of the 18th century. The path continues across the plain before Susch to the foot of the Fortezza Rohan (fortress). The trail continues to Lavin, where there are various places to stop for refreshments.
Stage 7 Lavin - Val Lavinuoz - Guarda (ascent 866m, descent 641m, duration 5 hours).
From the railroad station in Lavin, walk on the road in an easterly direction past the church and at the end of the village turn left under the railroad and cantonal road onto the forest road. Follow the signs of the Via Engiadina through the forest to the entrance of the Val Lavinouz. Over the alp Dadoura and up to the alp d'Immez the route runs along the alp road. The path then leads back towards Val Tuoi. Before reaching the bottom of the valley, a path branches off to the right from the Via Engiadina in the direction of Guarda.
Stage 8 Guarda - Alp Suot - Marangun - Alp Sura - Alp Murtera Dadoura - Ardez (ascent 591m, descent 779m, duration 4.50 hours).
At the eastern end of the village of Guarda, the trail branches off to the left into Val Tuoi and leads across meadows up to the valley entrance. The Val Tuoi is known for its great variety of plants and biodiversity. Via the unspoilt road you reach the Alp Suot, which was also used by Schellen-Ursli to fetch his «big Chalandamarz bell». The path climbs almost 150 meters in altitude from Alp Suot to Alp Sura, from where a unique view of the valley awaits. Partly quite steep, the Via Engiadina leads through mountain pastures and meadows via Alp Murtera Dadoura further over Mundaditsch and Munt down to the stage destination Ardez.
Stage 9 Ardez - Plan Chamuera - Alp Tasna - Alp Valmala - Alp Laret - Prui (ascent 817m, descent 185m, duration 4.45 hours).
At the upper edge of the village the Via Engiadina climbs steeply. After a short distance the path branches off to the left. After a bend to the right, the ascent to Plan Chamuera begins. Always slightly ascending you reach the Alp Tasna and after about 3 km the Alp Valmala. Across the valley flank the path leads up to the alp Laret at 2202 m above sea level. In the summer months the alp Laret is managed by alpine dairymen. After an easy ascent, the path leads more or less along the contour line to today's stage destination - the mountain station of the chairlift Ftan-Prui. From there you can either take the hiking trail or the chairlift, which is a little easier on the knees, directly down to Ftan. In Ftan there are various possibilities to stop for refreshments. Between Ftan and Scuol there are regular post buses.
Stage 10 Ftan - (chair lift) - Prui - Motta Naluns - Val Ruschna/Jonvrai - Salez - Vastur - Sent (ascent 157m, descent 791m, duration 3.45 hours).
If you want to do some extra meters of altitude, you can start the hike already in Ftan and walk via Alp Laret to the mountain station. If you want to start the day in a comfortable way, you can simply take the chair lift to the mountain station Ftan-Prui. From there you follow the Flurinaweg to the mountain station Motta Naluns. From there the path leads parallel along the chairlift Naluns towards the mountain restaurant Chamanna Naluns (no summer operation). Below the mountain restaurant the route branches off to Jonvrai. About 150 m before a clearly visible bend to the right, the path turns off again, follow the signposts. The descent to Vastur, a mountain restaurant with summer opening hours, follows the slope through lush vegetation. The further descent to Sent takes about another hour.
Stage 11 Sent - Val Sinestra - Vnà - Buorcha - Val Ruinains - Tschlin. (Ascent 650m, descent 561m, duration 6.30 hours).
In the Engadine village of Sent the tour starts in an easterly direction. Via a scenic field road you leave the village in the direction of Val Sinestra. Further on the path leads almost without any gradient to the turnaround point of the Val Sinestra spa hotel. In summer, a post bus connection also brings us to the valley, with which one can save a good 1.5 hours. Passing the Val Sinestra spa house, the trail continues to Vnà, where there are refreshment stops and overnight accommodations. Across a sparse forest and meadow landscape you reach the two former hamlets of Chant Sura and Chant Dadaint. Before crossing the Val Ruinains, the path climbs a bit more. On a scenic path we finish the last stretch and arrive in Tschlin, situated high above the valley floor.
Stage 12 Tschlin - Mundaditschas - Vadrain - Pra da la Zipla - Vinadi (ascent 235m, descent 668m, duration 3.30 hrs. )
From Tschlin the last stage of the Via Engiadina continues to Vinadi. Through the forests of Valsot across open meadows. From Alp Vadrain a path leads via La Vota more or less along the contour line to Pra d'Arsüra below Motta Mundin (2138m). Now the trail descends steeply along a narrow path in the notorious avalanche slopes of Val Mundin in a rather rocky landscape. From the clearing Pra da Zipla the path goes downhill in a less demanding and comfortable way until Vinadi.
