The second stage of the regional bike route 442 is peppered with impressive vistas and glimps. Initially, the proud Tarasp Castle at the foot of the striking Lower Engadine Dolomites dominates the panorama. Later, the individual Lower Engadine villages appear on the horizon and in the distance, all of which are visited on the tour. Scuol, Sent, Vnà and Ramosch. The long and altitude-intensive ride into Val Sinestra is technically easy and allows views of the picturesque and ghostly looking spa resort Val Sinestra as well as of the earth pyramids near Zuort. Prümaran da Muranza at the highest point of the tour is situated idyllically above Zuort in Val Laver and presents a view of the last kilometres of the tour. In Zuort at the confluence of Aua da Laver and Brancla, it is worth stopping for refreshments in the restaurant, which is open all year round, before continuing along the left side of the valley to Vnà and the descent to the day's destination Ramosch at the foot of the castle ruins of Tschanüff.

Author’s recommendation

During the summer months (July & August) it is worthwhile to continue a little further into Val Laver (between Sinestra and Zuort) as far as Alp Prà San Flurin, where you can stop for refreshments.
