The tscheurig snowshoe trail starts in Thalkirch. Before you go on the hike, it is worth a look into the small Thaler church. She impresses with her fine simplicity. The trail then branches off vis-a-vis the Alte Post post bus stop to the right of the valley road.

Constantly slightly ascending you hike up to the lower Tscheurighuts and on to the Alp Tscheurig. From here it gets a little steeper and one perceives more and more the pronounced terrain chambers at the foot of the Tälihorn. At an altitude of about 2,100 meters you can enjoy a magnificent view of the valley end with the dominant Weisshorn. If you watch the surroundings closely, you can even watch snow chickens.

After crossing the Gasslitobel, the descent to Alp Guw begins and on to the Mountain Inn Turrahus and the Thalkirch/Turrahus post bus stop. Right next door in the Exhibition Stable Turrahus, the visitor learns interesting things about the settlement of the Safiental and the wooden buildings and stables typical of the valley. You can even put on your own hand and try the covering of a roof with shingles. Those who like it cozy, satisfy their 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 themselves and inform themselves about the snow and avalanche conditions before the tour. Surselva Tourism assumes no liability.

The time 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.

Inform yourself about the current snow and avalanche situation before each tour 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.
