Falera-Curnius-Schneeschuhlaufen

A sunny trail above the former sun worship site of Falera. It runs through forests and over alpine pastures to the Curnius mountain station, affording a panoramic view across the Rhine Valley and the Val Lumnezia along the way.
The route begins at 1,200 m above sea level in the historic village of Falera. Inhabited for more than 3,000 years, this was originally an important sun worship site. The«Parc La Mutta» megalithic site – one of the largest of its kind in Switzerland – still attests to this. Starting by the chairlift valley station, the snowshoe trail runs up an appropriately sunny slope towards the Curnius mountain station.

The first 300-odd metres follow the winter hiking trail, while the official snowshoe trail begins at the first right turn. The route just under four kilometres long runs over wide alpine pastures and through short forest sections, with a beautiful view across the Rhine Valley to Chur and from the Val Lumnezia towards Obersaxen in the distance. At the end of the trail at 1,644 m above sea level, hikers reach the mountain station and the Tegia Curnius restaurant. The typical Graubünden dishes on the menu include the house speciality: Maluns with alpine cheese and apple sauce.

Athletic hikers can follow the snowshoe route back to Falera, while a chairlift ride down into the valley is the more leisurely option. Those with time to spare should make a detour to the village and visit St. Remigius church. This landmark of Falera was built in the 15th century on a scenic terrace with a view across the central Anterior Rhine Valley. The church is regarded as one of the region’s most beautiful historic buildings. It is located on the «Parc La Mutta» megalithic site, known as the «Swiss Stonehenge» and featuring more than 30 geometrically arranged stones.
