Description

Mighty larches and Swiss stone pines line this high-altitude trail on longer distances. The tour is therefore also well suited for hot summer days. In between you pass again and again clearings, side valleys and Maiensässe, which open the view into the main valley. Such viewpoints along the way are, for example, the Varuna junction, the Baita Stafel or the Maiensäss Val in the unspoilt Val d'Ursé. They pay homage to the name of the trail: the "Sentiero Panoramico" is an enjoyable panoramic path. Across the shimmering green Lago di Poschiavo you can see up to the mountains of the nearby Valtellina.

A particularly charming place is the plateau of Selva. The barely wooded terrace was formed at the end of the last ice age at the edge of the melting glacier. Today there is a village with two small churches, which stand at the extreme edge of the steep step high above the valley floor of valposchiavo.

Geheimtipp

Pension Selva in the hamlet of the same name serves specialities made from locally produced organic ingredients.

Directions

The route is signposted as a mountain hiking trail (white-red-white, difficulty level T2). The start is at the Cavaglia railway station high above the valley floor. Ascents and descents alternate again and again, but in between the hike also runs along a flat path. In addition to forest paths and nature trails through Meadows, wide gravel paths and asphalted, but hardly used roads are used. The destination is at the railway station Le Prese in the valley floor of Valposchiavo.
