Furner Rundweg

The hike offers an insight into a typical region once settled by the Walser people, with Furna, a dispersed settlement high above the Prättigau and its scattered homesteads, agriculture and forestry, and the Fadeuer as a rewarding panoramic mountain summit.
The starting point for the hiking circuit is the Walser village of Furna, which is accessed via a mountain road from Pragg-Jenaz. The trail takes us across lush meadows upwards past scattered farmsteads until we reach a track beyond Scäri, which we follow off to the left. Shortly thereafter, it opens up views of the hilly, grassy high-plateau with the Berghaus Scära mountain hut. From here the mountain trail continues on upwards, rising gently as it traverses the slopes, circling the Wannenspitz and Fadeuer,and opening up the view into the valley running parallel, with its alpine meadows.

Before we cross the ridge after the Stelli hut and return to the Furna side in the direction of Alp Sattel, it is well worth the short climb to the summit of the Fadeuer, a vantage point with spectacular panoramic views. The final section of the trail takes us across pastures, at times without a path, then on an ordinary track, winding its way in hairpin bends from the Alp Sattel down through the forest to Hinterberg and across the road back to Furna.
