Description

From Juppa, the path leads past the two inns "Berghotel turtschi" and "Hotel Bergalga" to the hamlet of Podestatenhaus at 2046 m above sea level.M. In 1664, Augustin Strub, ex-Podestat in Valtellina, built the "Podestatenhaus" here as an old man's residence. The destination of the hike is Juf, the highest, year-round inhabited settlement in Europe at 2126 m above sea level.M. The inhabitants of Juf live mainly from agriculture and tourism. Maybe you will discover a few chamois, mountain jackdaws or even the golden eagle!? Catering and accommodation are available in Juppa and Juf. Return to the starting point by PostBus or on foot (on the same route).

The history of the Avers high valley goes back a long way. Late Stone Age and Early Medieval finds do not yet allow conclusions to be drawn about a permanent settlement, but these suggest that the valley was used very early as a transit area. In the 13th century, the Avers was settled by the Walsers. This is still evidenced today by the way of settlement (scattered settlements), the architectural style of the houses and the Walser dialect.

Information on the condition of the winter hiking trails in the Avers can be found here.
