This is an additional tour from Scuol - Ftan - Motta Naluns 964.

The tour starts in Scuol and follows a steeper path, almost parallel to the mountain railway, up to Tanter Dossa and on to Flöna. From here you now continue to Ftan, crossing the Motta Naluns gondola lift. The Engadine village of Ftan is great to explore on a village walk and offers a lot to discover with its typical houses and small shops.

Your tour now takes you on a good path up to Prui. From the Prui mountain station, you then walk along the Flurina path to the Motta Naluns mountain station. Here the reward awaits you - the view over the valley, Scuol and Tarasp Castle opposite. You can also enjoy an excellent meal in the "La Motta" mountain restaurant. You can return to Scuol either via the same route, a hiking trail from Motta Naluns or comfortably by cable car.



The route is signposted on site with green route stickers on white signposts.
