Untervaz has a public transport connection every half hour with Chur and can be easily reached as well as by car. The hike starts in the middle of the village (stop Untervaz Dorf) and leads via Vordergasse to the junction to the various Alps. We follow the signpost to the left in the direction of Fallboden and Hinteralp. At the fall floor turn left again through the forest to the Bärenhag. On the way we pass two short tunnels that have been carved into the rock.
The alpine road from Bärenhag to the former Walser settlement Batänja is a bit steep, but easy to walk. On Batänja (belonging to the municipality of Haldenstein) it is worth taking a break and taking a look at the opposite mountains of the Rhine Valley. Unfortunately, there is no place to stop for refreshments.
The path now winds through the small settlement and further through forest and meadows to the highest point of the hike on the Gürgütschboden. Now it goes downhill on the Alpweg. Again and again there are wonderful views of the valley and the rock formations of the Rätikon. The last section from Fallboden back to the village is identical to the ascent route. Right next to the village square is the Restaurant Linde, where you can comfortably wait for the next Postbus.
