Lumbrein a historic mountain village lies on an offshore rock plateau at 1390 m above sea level and is a good starting point for nature-conscious snowshoe hikers. Those who reach the mountain peak Um Su on this circular hike have a beautiful view over the Sursilvanian mountains at 2357 m above sea level. If you can't manage the 900 meters of altitude, you can easily turn around earlier. The terrain offers some worthwhile variants.

Back in the valley, the hosts will be happy to spoil you with coffee and cake or even with a fine capun.

The tour can be done in Lumbrein Nussaus (refreshments; Ustria Péz Cavel) or Lumbrein St.Andriu can be abbreviated with the Postbus.

The trail is not marked.

A snowshoe tour leads into unsecured terrain. 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-proof clothing. The wind can reduce the perceived temperature sensitively in winter: do not forget winter gloves, hat, thermos, etc.

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

Snowshoe equipment can be rented at Menzli Sport in Vella.
