Once you have arrived in Thalkirch, Turra, we recommend that you visit the exhibition stable of the Safier Ställe association right next to the post bus stop before starting your hike. There you will find interesting information about the significance of the stables and the Walser scattered settlements, which characterize the landscape in the region.
You start your hike following the valley road back to Thalkirch. After a few minutes, leave the road to the right over a bridge and follow the river to Thalkirch. As you walk, you will recognise the typical Safi settlement landscape with the scattered houses on the left side of the valley (sometimes with free-standing ovens), stables, hay barns and alpine huts (called "Stupli").
In Thalkirch it is worth visiting the small church. From the church, walk back along the valley road for a short distance and then follow the hiking trail, which starts immediately to the right after a residential building. Across a meadow you walk in the direction of Bawald and a little later you reach the enchanting forest, which has many legends to tell. The path continues through forest and across alpine meadows up to the Camaner huts. The view from up here is magnificent. They overlook almost the entire valley. In Camanaboda you will find yourself in the highest settlement in the valley that is inhabited all year round. This is also where the Safi Museum of Local History is located. Despite its small size, the "aalt Huus", as it is also called, has all the rooms that were common for the time and you can experience here impressively how people lived and worked in the past. It is open every other Sunday or by appointment. From Camanaboda, the path follows the road for a section before descending steeply from the "Hof" to Safien Platz.
