Klosters

from £1029
The hiking opportunities here are magnificent and extensive, with routes progressing through meadowland, forest and alongside fast flowing glacial rivers up to exposed high level terrain.

The Swiss village of Klosters is an idyllic Graubünden village, tucked away at the confluence of four valleys where much of the old world charm of an Alpine Switzerland remains. A patchwork of picturesque flower-filled meadows cover the lower slopes and the sound of cowbells often accompanies you on your walks. Higher up we may see Marmots and maybe even the Chamois or Ibex which find their summer home amidst the high peaks.

The hiking opportunities here are magnificent and extensive, with routes progressing through meadowland, forest and alongside fast flowing glacial rivers up to exposed high level terrain. The well marked tracks are generally good underfoot, but at higher levels as we snake up and around the jagged peaks there are some tougher ascents and descents.

Some of the hikes we'll enjoy include a ridge walk to the Weissfluh, a walk along a wonderful ‘Panoramaweg’, and a walk starting with a gondola ride up the Rinerhorn, so the hiking is spectacular from the outset. The hike descends to the village of Monstein, where you might like to relax with a local craft beer.

Why not combine our Klosters holiday with our Alpine Arosa holiday? Please see our Switzerland's Grisons Alps' holiday for more details.

  1. Day 1

    We fly from London Heathrow, Manchester or Birmingham to Zurich Airport and travel the very scenic journey to Klosters by train.

  2. 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.

    One free day will be organised during the week, you can use your Davos Klosters Inclusive Card on any of the local mountain lifts. The Davos Klosters Inclusive Card is included and will be provided on the first day of your holiday. It gives you free travel on local transport and reductions on many local attractions.
