En route between the hometown of Schellen-Ursli and the film location of the correspondent film. Scenically many sided round tour from Ardez to Sur En, alongside Giarsun and Lavin and over Guarda and Bos-cha back to the starting point. Sur En d'Ardez was the film location of the cinema movie Schellen-Ursli in 2015, whose story was created and plays in Guarda. After the longer ascent from the Inn bridge to Sur En and from Lavin to Guarda, a rest at the site is welcome. In between, rapid descents through scenically many sided forests are waiting as well as impressive views into traditional and award-winning Engiadina villages.
Distance 18.1 km
From the train station Ardez, the route leads steadily down the valley to the Inn bridge and afterwards steeply ascending to the pictorally quiet hamlet Sur En, in which the winter film shots of the cinema movie "Schellen-Ursli" have been produced. The well invites to stay, before the route continues in an easy up and down westward, passing Giarsun to Lavin. In Lavin, the tour leads over the sheltered wooden bridge and though the town center back eastward. At the eastern border of the village at the church, the train tracks and main road are crossed below and the longer ascent to Guarda begins. In Guarda, where the story of Schellen-Ursli was created and plays, it is worth to take a rest or a trip through the village. Following the ancient road westward, the route continues via the hamlet Bos-cha, every now and then with view over the valley on Sur En back to Ardez. The view over Ardez on the Unterengadiner Dolomites to the castle of Tarasp completes the tour as another lasting memory.
The tour can also be started in Guarda, Giarsun or Lavin.
