The snowshoe trail Tscheurig starts in Thalkirch. Before you start hiking, it is worth taking a look at the small Thaler church. It impresses with its fine simplicity. The trail then branches off to the right of the valley road vis-à-vis the Postbus stop Alte Post.

Steadily slightly ascending you hike up to the lower Tscheurig huts and on to Alp Tscheurig. From here it gets a bit steeper and you notice the pronounced terrain chambers at the foot of the Tälihorn more and more. At an altitude of around 2,100 metres, you can enjoy a magnificent view of the end of the valley with the dominant Weisshorn. If you observe the environment attentively, you can even observe ptarmigans.

After crossing the Gasslitobel, the descent to Alp Guw begins and continues to the Berggasthaus Turrahus and the Postbus stop Thalkirch/Turrahus. Right next door in the Turrahus exhibition stable, the visitor learns interesting facts about the settlement of the Safien Valley and the wooden buildings and stables typical of the valley. You can even lend a hand and try covering a roof with shingles. If you like it cozy, satisfy your hunger in the nearby mountain inn Turrahus or in the Hofbeizli Gassli with fine regional delicacies.


The trail can also be walked in the opposite direction.


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.
