The narrow and steep valley would appear to indicate difficult, technically challenging trails - not everyone's idea of pleasure. But the marvellous circuit of Saas Grund, via Furggau and back again via Saas Almagell undermines this assumption in spectacular fashion. Immerse yourself in an enormous mountain world and enjoy yourself, best sums up the approach to this tour.
