The route begins in the middle of the impressive Samnaun mountains. The stage starts with 1000 metres of ascent at the Zeblasjoch and from here all along the border ridge over the Greitspitz, the highest point in the Silvretta Arena. Via Idalp and Paznauner Taja you reach the extensive Fimba Valley.

After a rest in the Heidelberger Hütte, the ascent to the Fimberpass follows and from there the long descent towards Hof Zuort. For the last time, there are 200 metres of altitude difference to overcome in Val Laver before the long descent to Sent, past the legendary Hotel Val Sinestra, begins.

Author’s recommendation

In summer, the Val Sinestra mountain restaurant or the Bündnerstube in the large Kurhaus are open. There is a cosy mountain restaurant with a comfortable terrace or, in bad weather, a beautiful winter garden dating from 1903.
