Your tour starts in the Engadine village of Tarasp. Right at the beginning there is a lot to see with the imposing castle, the small lake "Lai da Tarasp" and the beautiful Engadine houses. As soon as you leave the village, you head into the beautiful forest landscape that surrounds Tarasp in the direction of Zuort. The tour is a loop and finally leads you back to Tarasp. 

Author’s recommendation

Combine the tour with a guided tour of Tarasp Castle.
