Trailrunning Via Grischuna

Trailrunning: Via Grischuna Trailrunning

The most beautiful peaks in the world

The Via Grischuna climbs about 9'000 metres in altitude on the seven stages from Davos to St. Moritz. The fact that such dimensions can be found in Grisons may come as a surprise at first glance, but at second glance it becomes clear that the local mountains don’t need to hide from any summit in the world.

On the contrary: wide, rocky valleys, crystal-clear lakes and gleaming white glaciers make Grisons’ mountain-world one of the most beautiful ones on the planet. The wild and romantic landscape, that the Via Grischuna leads through, takes the breath away of even the best trail runners.

Itinerary

First, with the call-bus to the Vereina mountain inn. At the beginning, it's a cosy walk over lush green pastures, but already the first ascent to the Jöri lakes is a real challenge. Highlights of today are the two passes Jöriflüelafurgga and Flüela Pass. From here, you descend to the mountain inn in Dürrboden.

approx. 23 km
1'550 m
1'485 m

With the ascent to the Scaletta Pass, you overcome about half of the difference in altitude of today's stage right at the beginning. Then you keep the altitude and walk high above the Val Funtauna to the crystal-clear mountain lakes of Sella da Ravais-ch. A wide valley leads you to Chants. Those with tired legs can shorten the trip from here with the Taxi Alpin - for fit runners, the plateau above Val Tuors offers a harmonious end to today.

approx. 17 – 30 km
800 – 1'370 m
965 – 2'010 m

The first kilometres lead along the Albula line past the lakes Lai da Palpuogna and Lais digl Crap Alv, then you descend in serpentines into Val Bever. The turquoise-blue river Beverin accompanies you on the last kilometres to the mountain inn in Spinas.

approx. 18 km
1'295 m
845 m

The trail to the Chamanna Jenatsch climbs steadily at first, and the last few metres up to the highest SAC hut in Grisons are a real challenge. The views on the Fuorcla d'Agnel and Fuorcla digl Leget passes are breathtaking. A long trail leads you from here down to Bivio.

approx. 27 km
1'655 m
1'700 m

An old Roman mule track leads you up to the Septimer Pass. From here, you set off for the summit climb, which takes you high up onto Piz Lunghin. Afterwards, you descend into the Engadine. You reach the Via Engiadina and cross the Heidi village Grevasalvas. Today's destination: Sils-Maria.

approx. 21 km
1'270 m
1'235 m

The trail winds upwards through the forest in countless serpentines. Once you have crossed the tree line, views of the lakes of the Upper Engadine await you. The highlight of today is the Fuorcla Surlej with a breathtaking panorama of the glaciers of the Bernina Group. A steep descent is followed by a gentle finish through the Val Roseg to Pontresina.

approx. 23 km
1'215 m
1'255 m

First up to Alp Languard and then in a long curve on a high trail to the Segantini Hut. This is followed by a steep descent through Val Muragl and an unhurried cool down walk through the Stazer Forest to St. Moritz.

approx. 23 km
1'200 m
1'235 m
