We load our bikes on the train and ride to Tschamut. Here the family fun begins. Always downhill and with little power we roll down to Selva. On the single trail from the main road to the golf course we need some skill, but afterwards the paths are wider again and less demanding. Alternatively, we can ride on the pass road to Selva.

In Selva we change to the other side of the Rhine. Below Rueras we pass a playground, where there is a barbecue in case lunch is planned. On asphalt we continue through the forest and past the power station Vorderrhein to the bathing lake Lag da Claus. The water reaches a pleasant temperature in summer, the terrace is open in nice weather where you can get small snacks or ice cream.

The short climb up to the main road is perhaps a bit difficult after the long break and just has to be endured. But then we relax again from Bugnei on. Easy peasy it goes via Mompé Tujetsch and Segnas down to Disentis.


The kiosk at the lake provides us with food and drink or with an ice cream.


Suitable for children from about 12 years. Between Tschamut and Selva, the single trail for children is only partially drivable, but alternatively you can also drive on the pass road to Selva.


Don't forget your bathing dresses!


Tschamut can be reached with the Matterhorn Gottard Bahn, which transports the bikes of the whole family. Here we drive down the road to Tschmut and drive down a short distance on the pass road. Immediately after leaving the village, the tour leads to the right on the hiking trail, which leads down to the golf course of Selva. As soon as the natural road is reached, we turn left onto it and drive through the golf course to Selva. Even before the first houses, the tour turns right onto the natural road, which leads down to the bridge. We pass the gate and drive up the natural road briefly but steeply and follow the medium-wide nature trail down the valley. Shortly before camping in Rueras, the natural road joins a tarred road. We continue straight on this and up to Foppas above Surrein. As soon as we get out of the forest, a short single trail branches off to the left, which can be used as a shortcut to get to Surrein. Alternatively, follow the tarred road to the next intersection, where the road leads left to Surrein. We drive out of the village down to the intersection, turn right there and a few meters later meet the bathing lake Lag da Claus. From Lag da Claus the tour leads along the tarred road to Sedrun. In Sedrun we turn right onto the cantonal road and drive out of the village. At the Bugnei signpost we turn left and drive up to the Bugnei train station. We cross the tracks and turn right again onto Senda Sursilvana. This leads us back to Disentis.
