Bluäma Wäg Avers (Flower Walk)
Show all 6 images
After only a short stretch of the way, a first, purple flowering meadow follows, whose scent seems to be literally in the air: There are magnificent carnations in large numbers. Shortly thereafter, the first stands of the massive Alpine mountain ridge with its large, purple flower heads appear. Past old mountain huts, the path soon becomes lonely and leads through former wild hay fields, on which a good dozen plant species shine in violet variations for the favor of bees and butterflies, including the purple shiny scabiosis. The flowers are impressive, as is the steepness of the slopes. The cultivation of these remote mountain meadows was gradually abandoned until the beginning of the seventies, today they lie fallow.
A project by Pro Natura Graubünden aims to mow them regularly again so that the original diversity is further promoted. At the highest point of the hike, at 2100 meters, grows the violet-blue flowering Himmelsleiter, further down in the high perennial meadow near the mountain pasture Starlera you will meet the trimmed lice herb with its violet overflowing leaves and the violet-blue flowering Scheuchzers Rapunzel.

Good to know:
The narrow path is often sloping and exposed and requires good surefootedness. In wet weather, the hike is not recommended due to the risk of slipping. Not suitable for strollers and not suitable for children!
Avers-Cröt and Innerferrera can be reached by post bus. Further information and timetable information can be found at www.sbb.ch.
