Julier Pass Route
The Julier Pass Route leads from Chur through deep Alpine valleys, over the Julier Pass and on to St. Moritz. Discover the attraction of Switzerland’s oldest town, Chur –before moving on via Churwalden to Valbella and more spectacular sights, along with sweeping views over the Lenzerheide. The Seilpark on the Alp Pradaschier, with the world’s longest sled run, is of course yet another spectacular sight. (PostBus stop Churwalden, Post: Sesselbahn Pradaschier).
Lenzerheide, too, offers active year-round fun; with the idyllic Heidsee lake that invites visitors to take a refreshing summer plunge; and Globi hiking trail that appeals to children and those young at heart! (PostBus stop Lenzerheide Post). The Lenz sun-terrace offers delightful views over the Albulatal valley and, from this point, the Parc Ela nature reserve extends all the way to Bivio.
One of many recommended proposals, is a hike from Savognin (PostBus stop Savognin Posta) over the Alp Flix to one of the numerous PostBus stops that lie along this stretch i.e. PostBus stops Rona; Sur –and in summer there’s also an Alpin Bus connection with Alp Flix, leading to Marmorera, Dorf; Bivio, Posta. Bivio is door to the Julier Pass, where the European Rhein-Donau watershed flows, and location of the mountain-bike route over the Septimer Pass (PostBus stop Bivio, Posta). Following Silvaplana, with its unique lake-studded plateau, you find yourself in St. Moritz and the realm of excellent hotels and exclusive shopping possibilities….and that’s not all! Here visitors also delight in the spectacle of horse racing on the region’s deep frozen lake, along with the regal polo snow sport, and the world’s one and only natural bob ice-run that all in all make the beautiful resort a Mecca for winter sport enthusiasts.
