Day 2 to 7
During our time in Klosters, our walks will start from the village of Klosters and others will require us to take a cable car, train or the occasional local bus. Our walks are flexible to allow for group ability and weather conditions, and may include one or more of the following examples:
Gotschnagrat Circuit. This magnificent high level walk on the Gotschnagrat Circuit takes us on a hike under, around and over the rocky spires of Gotschnagrat and Casanna. The varied habitats passed allow for a wide range of flowers, especially orchids and of course splendid views at all times. 8.7 miles (14km), 680m ascent/ descent, 4 hrs 50 mins.
Saaser Calanda. A definite day not to be missed is the interesting ascent through a collection of fascinating limestone rock formations to an easily rounded summit guarded by fearsome cliffs at the Saaser Calanda. We start with a ride on the Madrisa cabe car to Massplatte. Then meander through past the Geisshorn and Bockhorn before reaching Saaser Calanda for fantastic views. 5.6 miles (9km), 730m ascent/descent, 4 hours 40 mins.
The Ducantal. We will explore a cinder track up a valley near Sertig Sand, past a hidden waterfall tucked away from the main paths. We will ascent up through the trees to the Ducantal narrow valley where we can view rock strata’s different from any other walk in this area. We will enjoy the views up the valley before pressing on to a gathering of small huts at Fanexmeder and Oberalp. Our path will take us down to Monstein and through the picturesque local village for a final descent. 7.2 miles (11.6km), 821m ascent / 954m descent, 5 ½ hours.
Ridge Walk to the Weissfluhjoch. A superb ridge walk at the top of the grade because of some slight technical areas. We take the cable car to the top station of Gotschnagrat and start our ascent to the Parsennfurgga col where we can enjoy the views and a rest in a cafe. We then ascend along a steep zig zag path and encounter narrow pathways with fixed wires to assist. We will continue the short but steep descent to the top of the hill to view the Parsennfurgga below. We then catch a mountain train for a short distance before continuing on foot down to Davos. 12km / 8 miles 720m ascent, 990m descent, 5 hours.
