The snowshoe tour starts in Ramosch, which is characterised by its old Roman road. It is one of the driest places in Switzerland and is considered the warmest Engadine village in the summer. The mild climate and good soil conditions once made Ramosch and the higher-lying Vnà the granary of the Engadine. On the slopes surrounding Ramosch, the terraced steps used to irrigate the fields still bear witness to this today. From Ramosch, the route follows the aforementioned terraces eastward uphill. On the way there you will enjoy an impressive mountain panorama from Val d'Assa over Val d'Uina to the Sesvenna group south of Scuol. The last stretch to Vnà leads through the forest. The sunny and panoramic location of the village invites you to take a break after the steep ascent. The village museum Vnà and the "dicziunari rumantsch" – a walkable dictionary – make a village tour in Vnà a wonderful experience. On small signs attached to the houses, expressions in four languages (Romansh, Italian, German, English) can be compared. The snowshoe tour then leads directly back to Ramosch. The legendary and listed Tschanüff castle ruin is always in view. Along with Tarasp Castle, it was the most important fortress in the Lower Engadine for a long time and characterises the village landscape just as much as the Reformed Florinus Church. The late-Gothic sacred building has room for 450 people, which makes the church – after St. Martin's Church in Chur – the second largest in the canton.
