unserer Tour von Davos nach St.Moritz war, bei traumhaftem Bergwanderwetter, ein wirklicher Genuss! Die Tages-Touren waren abwechslungsreich, herausfordernd, aber nicht überfordernd und entsprachen exakt den angegebenen Zeiten. Der Aufstieg zur Jenatschhütte war wirklich anstrengend, doch die Übernachtung in der Hütte war auch der Höhepunkt der Tour. Unser Tipp: unbedingt ein Doppelzimmer in der Jenatschhütte buchen, es schläft sich murmeltierisch gut darin!Achtung: die letzte Etappe über die Fuorcla Suvretta nur bei gutem Wetter machen, die Fuorcla ist sehr steinig, rutschig und sehr wind und wetterexponiert.

Es gibt eine Schlechtwetter-Variante zur Fuorcla. Man kann von der Jenatsch-Hütte auch über den Julierpass absteigen und von dort mit dem Bus nach St. Moritz. Die Karten und Beschreibung sind ebenfalls in den Unterlagen vermerkt.

hervorragend
Sehr gute Organisation der Tour durch Eurotrek (Unterlagen, Abwechslung von Hütten und Hotels), wunderschöne Route, geniales Wanderwetter und Beobachtungsglück (Bartgeier bei Keschhütte und bei Abstieg von Fuorcla Suvretta, Steinböcke bei Jenatschhütte, Falke, daneben auch Murmeli). Es war für uns und unsere kanadischen Verwandten ein wunderbares Erlebnis - vielen Dank!

PRIMA ORGANISIERT - GUTES WETTER
Sehr beeindruckende und gut organisierte Reise, bei der man deutlich spürte dass die Änderung im Vorfeld von Eurotrek getestet wurde. Unterkünfte waren seriös. Wegabschnitte lang und schwierig aber wunderbar machbar.So sollte eine Reise sein.
