The adventure trail starts at the Ravitschana bridge right by the «Ravitschana» post bus stop. It leads us along the Clemgia stream through a mixed spruce, pine and larch forest typical of the region to the Schmelzra Bear and Mining Museum. Along the path there are nine boards with information and games about the bear. These playfully convey information about the bear's way of life and the coexistence between bear and man. There is a barbecue area at the end of the trail.

Author’s recommendation

We recommend a visit to the mountain village of S-charl, which is about seven minutes walk from the Schmelzra Bear and Mining Museum.

Allegra stimà sar Kern Grazcha fichun – herzlichen Dank für Ihre Frage. Es freut uns, dass Sie am Bärenthemenweg interessiert sind. Der Bärenthemenweg hat einen sehr unruhigen Untergrund, weshalb wir ihn für Wanderungen mit dem Kinderwagen nicht empfehlen. Mit dem Kinderwagen können wir Ihnen hingegen den Flurinaweg oder die Strecke Scuol – Sur En empfehlen, beides habe ich Ihnen nachfolgend verlinkt. Ich hoffe, dies hilft Ihnen ein wenig für Ihre Planung. Für weitere Fragen oder Tipps stehen wir Ihnen zudem auch gerne unter info@engadin.com zur Verfügung. Wir wünschen Ihnen eine schöne Zeit und viel Freude in unserer Region.
