Graubünden Bike

The demanding ride over the Scaletta Pass and up to the Kesch Hut could be called the centerpiece of the Graubünden Bike route, which offers everything in terms of trails, scenery and challenge. Then comes the descent to Val Tuors: a high-Alpine section surrounded by 3,000 m peaks and glacier snouts.
In Davos it generally takes less than five minutes to get out of the urban village and into the peaceful countryside. The way up to the Kesch Hut is no different. As soon as you reach the entrance to the Dischma Valley, it is all about nature. There is barely any traffic here and the longer you ride up the long side valley on the small road the more charming it gets. Near Dürrboden the asphalt road changes to a cart path, initially easy, then steep and rough up to Scaletta Pass. Normally, people walk their bike up to the small pass and enjoy the wonderful downhill ride on the trail to Val Futauna.

Down on the bottom of the valley, you will need your strength again. A single trail climbs up to the Kesch Hut, initially very pleasant, but then becoming increasingly steep. Well trained mountain bikers will stay in the saddle all the way up to the beautifully situated hut. It took its name from Piz Kesch, an enormous rocky mountain whose north wall rises right in front of the hut.

But we are focusing on getting downhill now. A gorgeous trail, about a meter wide, winds itself down to Chants, and then you leave the rugged Val Tuors on a gravel road leading directly to Bergün and its historic village centre, the destination of today’s stage.
