This is the "easiest" stage of the "National Park Region" e-mountain bike tour. It initially leads steadily to the right of the Inn, several ascending and descending to Zernez and on to Susch and Lavin. After crossing the Inn, the long but steady and pleasantly steep ascent follows until Guarda is located at 1653 m above sea level. Schellen-Ursli's home is sun-drenched on a terrace and invites you to linger. Until Bos-cha the road runs flat, followed by a short descent towards Ardez. Ardez is bypassed above before the last climb over the ruins of Chanoua, past the valley entrance to Val Tasna to Ftan, is tackled. You can regularly enjoy the wide view over Tarasp and Scuol to the Lower Engadine Dolomites. The final descent from Ftan to Scuol is sometimes a bit steep and requires some caution.

Note: Dogs are not allowed in the Swiss National Park, not even on a leash.
