Zernez - Susch – Lavin

In Susch turn right on the main road and after about 100 meters follow the hiking trail leading to Lavin. In Lavin hike in the direction of Stazium. Trains run regularly from the Lavin Railway Station to Zernez.

Romantic wilderness forests alternate with green meadows. The mighty peaks of the Lower Engadine rise around the trails. On the way you will find the villages of Susch und Lavin. Susch, at the foot of the Flüela Pass, with its many houses built in the Graubünden style, is especially a feast for the eyes.

The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
