Riein Rundtour

The area between Riein and Oberdutjen is one of the most ideal snowshoe tours in the central Surselva. Sparse forests, dreamy alpine meadows and an impressive panorama characterize this area.

The tour is not marked.

This area is probably one of the best snowshoe areas in the Surselva. Wildlife and tracks can also often be observed. However, this also requires appropriate behaviour towards the sensitive animal world in winter.

The start of the tour is at the upper end of the village of Riein. Shortly after the reservoir, turn right onto the wide hiking trail. Later it goes up over alpine meadows. Sometimes flatter, sometimes steeper. Soon you arrive at the bottom of the Cuolm Sura mountain huts. Often there are other tracks here and you can relax before it goes steeper up to Alp da Sevgein. Again, a short rest is offered on a flatter section. But now it's time to get down to business and climb a good 300 meters in altitude to the Dutjer Alp. The panorama up here at over 2000 m above sea level extends over the whole Surselva down to the Alpine town of Chur, the 3000m peaks of the Sardona chain. The subsequent descent over the wide ridge to Alp da Riein is leisurely. Now you are well run in and can jump down the somewhat steeper slopes and slide. At Darmasal you come back to the ascent route and can now trudge back to Riein in a relaxed manner.


A visit to the church in Riein is worthwhile.


Ski and snowshoe tours in unsecured terrain require good knowledge of avalanche danger assessment and tour planning. Furthermore, a complete safety upgrade must always be carried - regardless of the current avalanche danger.

We recommend the WhiteRisk app and website to prepare and plan the tour.

For carefree enjoyment, we recommend our mountain guides and snowshoe hiking guides of the Surselva.
