Because of its location at the bottom of a wide valley, Arosa is very sunny and to a great extent sheltered from strong winds. As there is no transit traffic, the air is particularly pure which is why Arosa has been a famous Alpine health resort since 1877. Arosa is accessible by Rhaetian Railways from Chur or by car across over 365 serpentines and through several tunnels, past the smaller holiday resort of Langwies.

The Arosa All-inclusive Card, which is free to all overnight guests (apartment, hotel or camp site), Arosa guests benefit from a wide variety of local leisure activities in summer and autumn – all for free! The Arosa All-inclusive Card includes the usage of the mountain railways to Hörnli and Weisshorn, access to the rope park, entrance to the local history museum, pedalo hire and much more.

Summer

The hiking region boasts 200 kilometres of varied walking and hiking trails. The 15-kilometre-long ten-lake-hike, for example, takes you past one crystal clear lake after another. And walkers doing the several-day tour from Davos via Arosa to Lenzerheide can have their luggage transported from one stopover location to the next. For mountain bike riders there are 50 kilometres of trails. There is also a luggage transport service for riders embarking on several-day tours.
