The focus is on the spectacular rocky path through the upper Val d'Uina, a former smugglers' route recommended for those with a head for heights. At the top of the pass, already on Italian soil, the spacious Sesvenna cabin is located.

On the second hiking day, the ascent to Fuorcla Sesvenna leads past two lovely mountain lakes. After the pass, the geological formations with their different rock colours captivate bypassers. In the summer months you can stop for refreshments on Alp Sesvenna above S-charl.
