Just where the Upper Engadine Valley becomes the Lower Engadine, somewhere between Zuoz and Zernez, the River Inn has created a deep gorge, where the sides of the valley rise up steeply on both sides of the river. While the right-hand side of the valley is part of the Swiss National Park and is therefore largely left to Nature, along the left-hand side of the valley there are a number of picturesque villages to admire, typical of the Grisons region.

The tour begins in Zuoz and follows the Veloland Schweiz route as far as Zernez. There, the route changes to the other side of the river. You go past the villages of Brail, Cinuos-chel and Susauna before the final climb up to Acla Laret. When you get to the top, a sensational panorama of the Upper Engadine valley opens up before you. Finally, a rather tricky descent takes you back down to Zuoz.
