Beautiful circular tour through the different Tarasp hamlets Vulpera, Florins, Fontana, Sparsels, Chaposch, Avrona and Valatscha with old authentic Engadine houses. Continue through colourful larch forests and moorland, stopping at the idyllic Lai Nair and visiting the impressive Tarasp Castle.
Distance 19 km
From Vulpera we initially follow the golf course and then along an old narrow spa promenade to Florins with views of Ftan on the opposite side of the valley. On a natural road we continue on to the hamlets of Chaposch and Valatscha, with traditional Engadine houses as architectural highlights.
From Valatscha the route leads through larch forests into the wild Val Plavna. From there a forest road leads past sulphur springs down to the hamlet of Fontana. Then the route follows an amelioration path up to the high moorland surrounding Lai Nair and further through the forest to Avrona. Here, at the entrance to the wild Val S-charl, there is a small restaurant with an unusual view of Ftan and Sent, inviting you to take a break. Afterwards the tour leads through the forest and further with views of the Tarasp Castle to Sparsels until below Mot da la Crusch. A visit to the famous castle is a must. A speedy descent then takes you back to Vulpera.
