This charming snowshoe trail leads past idyllic hamlets and the Caman huts, which are lined up like a silver thread. The view wanders again and again into the distance: to the striking summit Piz Beverin, the Bruschghorn, the Glaspass and all the way back into the Safiental.

The snowshoe trail starts at the Camana junction. First follow the road towards Camana for about 50 meters and turn left into the forest. The trail meanders pleasantly uphill through the forest. Soon you leave the forest and hike over wide slopes up to Innercamana. From there, the trail leads over wide loops up to the impressive Camaner huts. As witnesses of Walser alpine farming, they are lined up like a silver thread on a line. Hiking from hut to hut, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Piz Beverin, the Bruschghorn and the Glaspass. Until about 1875, this was one of the most important connections for the Safiental to the neighbouring valleys.

Almost at the end of the Camaner huts begins the relatively steep descent to Camanaboda. Just like Innercamana, Camanaboda is also a typical hamlet with sunburnt houses, as found in Walser scattered settlements. Since agriculture has changed dramatically, there are also new, large stable buildings. In the past, the Walser moved with their animals from stable to stable and were only for a short period with the cattle near the house. In Camanaboda it is worth taking a look at the Safier Heimatmuseum. There you will learn impressively how you used to live and work. In the Hotel Camana you can eat yourself with homemade delicacies before the final descent to the post bus stop Mura.


A snowshoe tour leads into unsecured terrain. Some of the tours are not signposted or maintained. It is up to each tourer to fully equip himself and to inform himself about the snow and avalanche conditions before the tour. Surselva Tourism assumes no liability.

The time indication is a guideline in good conditions for reasonably experienced tourers. Times for snowshoe tours can vary greatly depending on conditions, equipment and condition. Plan enough time and start early for the planned tour!

This tour description and the marking in the terrain do not represent a tour recommendation. Each inspection decision is the sole responsibility of the individual tourer. It is strongly discouraged to walk in poor visibility conditions (fog, snowfall, etc.) or in case of increased avalanche danger. Attention spring conditions: From about March and generally on warm and / or very sunny days, tours must be finished early.

Before each tour, find out about the current snow and avalanche situation We recommend doing your first tours with a guide.

For us humans, winter is a wonderful time! Snow-covered landscapes, clear, pure air and in the evening after the snowshoe tour a warm, cozy home awaits you. For our game, such as roe deer, deer and gems, winter is a hard time! Every disturbance by us humans, every escape, becomes a torment for these animals and consumes their reserves. Stay on the published route! In this way, the wildlife and quiet zones are protected.


Well-functioning snowshoes, poles with winter plates, good footwear, winter-ready clothing. The wind can significantly reduce the perceived temperature in winter: do not forget winter gloves, hat, thermos bottle, etc.

It is recommended to carry a complete winter tour equipment including avalanche detector.
