Surrounded by steep slopes and high peaks, Puschlav is not only suitable for extended mountain hikes over lonely heights. In the valley there are also hiking routes with a small difference in altitude. For an easy hike, for example, the largely flat valley floor is ideal.

From the church of the village of San Carlo it goes initially a few dozen meters uphill to Somaino, then in the forest a piece of flat path and then back down to the northern end of Poschiavo. But from then on, the hike is practically flat.

In the second part of the tour you go through a graceful cultural landscape characterized by meadows, hedges and dry stone walls, later directly along the valley river Poschiavino. At Rutisc you pass an idyllic water landscape with ponds and crystal clear streams.

The last part of the hike leads directly along Lake Poschiavo. The route offers a lot of variety: there are scenic nature trails, footbridges, galleries and even two short tunnels.


A coffee stop in Poschiavo is indispensable. The magnificent palazzi give the main town of the valley an urban atmosphere.


The route is signposted as a hiking trail (yellow boards, difficulty level T1). It is an easy hike in the valley floor of Valposchiavo. The route has only slight differences in altitude, runs almost in a north-south direction and thus not only leads towards the sun, but also offers beautiful views out of the valley. The starting point is the Postbus stop of the village of San Carlo. The destination of the hike is the train station Miralago.
