from CHF 970.-- per person for 5 nights Prices per person in a double room

The offer is bookable from 17 June until 19 September 2023 (depends also on the snow conditions on the pass).

Combine first-class hotel comfort with simple cottage experience

Beautiful mountain hike in alpine terrain from Vnà, a mountain village not far from Scuol, via Heidelbergerhütte to Samnaun. Combine first-class hotel comfort with simple hut romance. Over hill and dale the path leads you from valley to valley - one more beautiful than the other - through lush green meadows, between rushing mountain streams and the mighty peaks of the Silvretta Group.

Scuol: Arrive and enjoy


Start your trip with a 2-night stay (or more if you wish) at the Hotel Belvédère****S in Scuol. Arrive and enjoy is the motto here! A generous wellness world and regional gourmet cuisine await you. Take a sauna in the hotel's own SPA Vita Nova and bathe in the mineral water of the Engadin Bad Scuol, which is directly connected to the hotel by a walkway. On the 2nd travel day there is time to explore the surroundings of Scuol and the Swiss National Park.

Stage 1: from Vnà to the Heidelbergerhütte


On the 3rd day of the trip, you will drop off your luggage at the hotel, for onward transport to Samnaun, and board the post bus, lightly packed with utensils for the mountain hut, in the direction of Vnà, the starting point of the transfer hike. The post bus leaves directly in front of the Hotel Belvédère. In Ramosch, change to the smaller post bus that goes up the narrow road to Vnà. From the terminal station Vnà, Jalmer you continue on foot.

Leisurely, with a slight incline, the path leads you deeper and deeper into the wild and romantic Val Sinestra. You will come to a crossroads where you have the option to either walk down to the Zuort farm or to continue slightly upwards following the signpost to the Heidelbergerhütte. Via Hof Zuort you are about 10 minutes faster. Would you like to enjoy a coffee at Hof Zuort before the climb then gradually increases? Or you can go straight on to Griosch (about 15 minutes from Hof Zuort), where you will find a very authentic small alpine restaurant, which offers products from the region and from the alp. Here, however, you can only sit outside - so if the weather is bad or cold, it is more advisable to plan a stop at Hof Zuort. From there on, there are no more possibilities to stop for refreshments until you reach the Heidelbergerhütte. From Griosch, the trail leads deeper and deeper into the beautiful, remote mountain landscape. You hike through lush green meadows while listening to the murmur of the wild brooks: pure nature, here you can switch off. Then follows the ascent of about 1.5 hours to the Fimber Pass. At the top of the pass you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view of the Fimba Valley. The path formed by the water winds down through the mountain meadows to the Heidelbergerhütte. Not far and you will reach the hut, wonderfully nestled in the alpine landscape, far away from civilization.

The Heidelbergerhütte is a very special hut: it belongs to the German Alpine Club, is run by an Austrian host couple and stands on Swiss soil. Here you can expect pure hut simplicity, relaxed atmosphere, hearty Tyrolean cuisine (be sure to try the apple strudel - one of the best!), bunk beds and wool blankets. You will look in vain for cell phone reception here - enjoy the offline time, the peace and nature!



Stage 2: from the Heidelbergerhütte to Samnaun


After a hearty breakfast, you hike across the alpine mats inhabited by marmots in the direction of Piz Fenga Pitschna. First you follow the hiking trail from which you came the day before for about 15 minutes and then turn left towards the signpost to Samnaun. There are a good 500 meters of altitude to overcome until you reach the Fenga Pass. Here you stand exactly on the border between Austria and Switzerland and enjoy magnificent panoramic views of the Silvretta group. First, you descend a bit on a path through scree before heading up to the Zeblasjoch on a pleasant meadow path. From here a wide, pleasant path leads down to Samnaun. It can be guessed that the valley descent passes through here in winter. Nevertheless, a wonderful trail in the midst of beautiful mountain scenery.

Samnaun: recreation at the destination


In the village center of Samnaun you are already expected at Chalet Silvretta Hotel & Spa****. Enjoy your welcome drink and treat yourself to some soothing hours in the SPA area. Our wellness tip: sweat in the earth sauna, cool off in the garden and stand under the cold outdoor shower. In the evening, enjoy a fine 4-course menu and use the remaining days of your stay for further hikes in the natural paradise around Samnaun: how about a side trip to Ischgl, for example? Visit the Alpenquell adventure pool or use the time for shopping in the duty-free village.

Important to know:


Reversed alternative:

The tour can also be booked with reversed accommodation order. Here you just have to keep in mind that the hike from the Heidelbergerhütte to Vnà is steep down after the Fimberpass, which is not very pleasant to walk. Therefore, we recommend the hike starting from Vnà. However, both variants are well doable..
