After an over 1200-metre ascent to the Umbrailpass, the trail to Bocchetta di Forcola and Bocchetta di Pedenolo begins. On a spectacular descent, the route leads down into the Valle di Cancano and via the Decouville panorama road to Arnoga.

This section starts in Filisur with its historic village centre. Passing the tanzenden Hexen von Bellaluna (dancing witches of Bellaluna) the trail leads up to the well-kept, historic railway station at Stugl. Finishing point at Bergün with its Engadin houses, a mecca for railway enthusiasts.

Author’s recommendation

Carry identification as this is a cross-border route.

Between the Umbrail pass and Arnoga, the route leads through Italy.
