Winter hike Heuberge - Hochwang
Show all 11 images
Since the winter season 2019/2020, a winter hiking trail connects the two snow sports areas Fideriser Heuberge and Hochwang. The attractive route in avalanche-safe and gentle terrain is very scenic and well sun-drenched. It can be walked in both directions and is also suitable as a public transport round trip. Don't miss: The 12 km long toboggan run from the Heubergen to Fideris!
Start Heuberge: The path rolled by snow groomers leads from the 2000 meter high mountain house Arflina over several plateaus up to the Arflinafurgga (2246 m). This pass connects the valleys Prättigau and Schanfigg - the view shows from now on the Aroser and Lenzerheider mountains and direction Surselva. After a short descent you reach the Faninpass, where you can catch another glimpse of the Rätikon mountain range with the Schweizertor. Relatively flat it now goes along gentle mountain slopes below Mittagspitz and Cunggel westwards, still consistently above the tree line. Finally, some hairpin bends lead to a branch, where you gain the path to the Berghaus Hochwang (1957 m). Alternatively, you can descend here to Peist. From the Berghaus, the trail leads for about 1.3 km to the Triemel mountain station of the chairlift (1880 m).
Start Hochwang: From the Triemel mountain station, follow the chairlift to berghaus Hochwang. About 300 m after the mountain house, the path branches off to the left (signals "Arflina"). After a short incline, you gain the gentle slopes below Cunggel and Mittagsspitz and soon see the culmination point Arflinafurgga. From the pass, the path leads in an easterly direction to the Berghaus Arflina.
Public transport round trip: With the Postbus to St. Peter and the regional bus to the valley station of the Hochwang cable cars, chairlift ride to Triemel. Winter hiking trail to Arflina. 12 km sleigh ride to Fideris. By Postbus and RhB back to Landquart.
