After passing Nietzsche (or rather his house) on your left in Sils, you will enter a mysterious landscape behind the impressive Hotel Waldhaus. As if forgotten by the world, the area seems to be asleep, covered by a snug winter coat. The stroll through the Laret forest to the sledding trail, up to Fexerstrasse and finally arriving in Güvé will leave you enthralled. A short climb up to the lookout and you will have a fairy tale at your feet with views ranging from Piz La Margna to Val Fedoz and across Lake Sils in the direction of Maloja. Make sure you leave time for a cake fresh out of the oven at the rustic hotel Crasta in Fex Crasta before you return to Sils on the canyon trail.
