Höhenweg Almagelleralp

This trail leads you from the idyllic Kreuzbogen lake and the colourful Alpine flower trail via the romantic Almageller valley to Almagelleralp, and along the adventure trail to Furggstalden; the Almagelleralp mountain trail is unrivalled in the scenic variety it offers.
From Kreuzboden (2400m), with its idyllic mountain lake, you hike along the first part of the Alpine flower trail to the Triftgrätji viewing point. Edelweiss and gentian are just two of the roughly 240 species of flowers you can marvel at along the Alpine flower trail. The mountain path above Grundberg leads you into the wild and romantic Almagellertal to Almagelleralp (2194m). After a break at the mountain hotel Almagelleralp which, in addition to excellent home-cooked food, also has a playground, a petting zoo and a Tyrolienne rope, you continue your hike either along the stream to Saas-Almagell, or via the adventure trail to Furggstalden. The Almagellerhorn adventure trail is the perfect hike for adventurous families, young people and the young at heart. The absolute highlight of the adventure trail is a 60 m long hanging bridge. From Furggstalden, you can comfortably descend to Saas-Almagell by chairlift. There is a bus every hour from Saas-Almagell to Saas-Grund.
