From the Postbus stop Tenna, Post walk towards the Reformed Church. Opposite the church from the 16th century, the route begins, which leads past old stables and barns up to the Tenner Alp. When wading through the snow, it feels like walking on a cloud for the hiker. With little effort, the tour offers an impressive backdrop in the best snowshoe terrain. The ascent to Tenner Chrüz leads past the world's first solar ski lift. Arriving on the Tenner Chrüz, you can enjoy a magnificent view of the Rhine Gorge, as far as Chur and the Engadine mountains.

Since we move at the tree line, the wildlife is not far away. Please note the winter rest areas, which are well signposted in the village.

A visit to the church in Tenna is highly recommended. It has beautiful murals and a richly decorated wooden ceiling.


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 themselves and inform themselves 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. An inspection in poor visibility conditions (fog, snowfall, etc.) or in the event of an increased avalanche danger is strongly discouraged. Attention spring conditions: From about March and generally on warm and /or very sunny days, tours must be ended early.

Before each tour, inform yourself about the current snow and avalanche situation We recommend that you complete your first tours with a guide.

For us humans, winter is a wonderful time! Deep snow-covered landscapes, clear, pure air and in the evening after the snowshoe tour a warm, cozy home awaits. For our game, such as deer, deer and gems, winter is a hard time! Every disturbance caused by us humans, every flight, becomes a torment for these animals and consumes their reserves. Stay on the published route! In this way, the game and rest areas 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.
