Hint

Intro

The Champlönch-Il Fuorn route is the ideal tour as an introduction to the Swiss National Park. Thanks to its interactive kids trail it is also ideal for families. The highlight is the cute marmots at Alp Grimmels.

Description

«I’ll show you what you can’t see» is the motto of the new Champlönch Kids’ Trail. Get to the root of the mysterious deer activity; eavesdrop on the conversation of mule-train traders of yesteryear; discover the truth about dwarfs and marmots – the new kids and family offers at the National Park provide all this and much more. A booklet and GPS device can be hired at the National Park Centre at Zernez.

The hike leads from the edge of the park at Ova Spins to Hotel II Fuorn on the Ofenpass road. The route follows the old mule track used before today’s Ofenpass road was built. Champlönch means «long field» – and it is on this that visitors make the gentle hike towards Hotel Il Fuorn.

A detour to Alp Grimmels is definitely worthwhile – and not only because of the marmots. The former alp affords wonderful views of the Ofenpass area with its extensive mountain-pine forests and is an ideal spot to take a rest.

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
