From Sils Maria over the scenic hill and through the Val Fex back to Sils Maria.

Walk beside the road into Val Fex, past the Hotel Waldhaus, to Vaüglia. Here you turn right, away from the road and through a primeval forest. The hiking trail takes you past an upland moor, in front of Alp Petpreier, and on to the Muott'Ota ridge, from where you can enjoy a superb view over Lake Sils and of the imposing Piz da la Margna. Your next destination is the first pronounced crest, after which you cross wide expanses of Alpine meadows down to the valley floor. You can return to Sils by horse-drawn carriage from outside the Hotel Fex, or hike through the hamlets of Curtins, Crasta and Platta and the impressive rock gorge back to the picturesque little village of Sils Maria.
