Winter walk in the Val Fex

Winter walk in the Val Fex

 open  partly open   closed 

Starting in the village of Sils, where the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche spent many productive summers, you head behind the imposing Hotel Waldhaus and into a mysterious landscape, wrapped in white and forgotten to the world. The enchanting walk leads you through the Laret forest up to the toboggan trail, up to the Val Fex road and finally to Güvé.

A short climb leads to a viewpoint offering a sublime panorama that sweeps from the Piz La Margna to the Val Fedoz and over Lake Sils towards Maloja. In Fex Crasta it is worth stopping to sample the oven-fresh cakes at the rustic Pension Crasta, before following the path through the Platta gorge back to Sils.
