Langlaufloipe Thalkirch, Safiental
Show all 5 images
The trail winds its way along the valley floor at the back of the Safiental valley and is framed by an imposing mountain backdrop. With a little luck you can even observe wild animals from the trail.
If you are at the very back of the wintery, secluded Safiental, you will quickly be surrounded by a relaxing peace. The wide valley floor is framed by imposing mountains such as the Wisshorn, the Schwarzhorn and Gelbhorn. At times you feel like you are in an amphitheater. The cross-country ski trail starts in Thalkirch Turrahus and winds along the valley floor and through a small pine forest, which also offers shelter for roe deer and black grouse.
The striking compensation basin of the Zervreila power plants seems somewhat strange in this otherwise idyllic landscape. On the way you can always enjoy a beautiful view of the Walser scattered settlements typical of the Safiental. The view extends to the Camaner huts, which form contrasting dots in the snow like a string of pearls.
In the exhibition stable Turrahus at the start and end point, the visitor learns interesting facts about the settlement of the Safiental and the wooden buildings and stables typical of the valley. You can even lend a hand yourself and try covering a roof with shingles. In the nearby mountain inn Turrahus or in the Hofbeizli Gassli you can satisfy your hunger and thirst with fine regional delicacies.
A visit to the Gasslihof or Berggasthaus Turrahus is worthwhile for refreshment before or after cross-country skiing.
