Hint

Intro

The Alp Fops round trip does not only include culinary highlights, but also a stunning panoramic view, overlooking the lake Heidsee. You can complete your hike with a cool refreshment in the lake Heidsee or with a relaxing pedalo excursion.

Description

Start the round trip at the post office Lenzerheide and walk past the sports pitch to the Zentrum Lai (shopping center). From there, the gravel road Penasch seura leads up to the parking lot of valley station Tgantieni. We do not use the cable car, but follow a beautiful meadow- and forest path up to the former mountain hut district Sporz. There, you can admire the famous mountain hut Hotel Guarda Val and enjoy the sun terrace on occasion.

You continue on the forest path to an open meadow where, with a little luck, you can see grazing horses during the summer months. After a short ascent, you will reach to the highest point of the hike. Up there you can enjoy the idyllic location in the mountain hut Alp Fops and relish a tasty Fopserbrettli (Fops plate) and a warming Hüttentee (hut tea).

The mountain path will take you then to Spoina and from there down to the lake Heidsee. As a conclusion of this beautiful hike, you will explore the Eichhörnliwald (squirrel forest) which will take you back to the post bus stop in Lenzerheide.

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
