Winter Hiking in Arosa

Hiking routes in Arosa, Langwies, on the mountain, at the Untersee lake or at the Hochwang

Every area offers a suitable option for your winter hiking tour. Our route list provides useful information for all tours including difficulty level. Arosa offers over 60 km of hiking trails which lead through snow covered forests or right across the snow sports area to all mountain huts.

Note: Unfortunately, the winter hiking trails cannot yet be groomed with a snow groomer due to the small amount of snow. However, most of the paths are already well tamped down or have been driven in with a quat and roller. However, good footwear is recommended. As a hiking tip, we can recommend the Eichhörnliweg, Prätschli - middle station or Prätschli - Rot Tritt.

Heidi & Gigi Trail

The Heidi & Gigi Trail, which connects Arosa and Lenzerheide, is a very special highlight in our winter sports paradise. The total hiking time is just around six hours. However, it can be shortened by using resort lift and chair lifts.

Be impressed by the mountain scenery, use the newest transportation facilities such as the Urden Aerial Railway and relax at one of the cosy mountain huts along the way.

Winter tours in detail:

Squirrel Trail

On the well-known squirrel trail children can feed the cute little animals by hand and learn exciting facts about squirrels along the way. The squirrels also enjoy unsalted hazelnuts in winter.


Bear Sanctuary Experience Trail 

Welcome to the bearish Tschuggen Trail. You can't miss our stars of the trail. Not for nothing do they belong to the big bear family. Set off and discover the six big bears, find out where they live and how big they can get. The route leads from Arosa Bear Sanctuary to Tschuggenhütte via the winter hiking trail to Bergkirchli to the village (Kulmwiese). Once you have found all the bears and measured them, you will find out which one is the biggest. Present the complete punch card, which you can get at Arosa Tourism or in Arosa Bear Sanctuary, at the guest information desk of Arosa Tourism (sports and congress centre in the village) and receive a beary surprise.

More information


In the two interactive adventure detective stories, you slip into the role of a commissioner of the Graubünden cantonal police. You are assigned to take up the investigation. Go on a search for clues across Ausser- and Innerarosa. Ask around in the village and in the surroundings of the two victims and get important clues that will lead you on the trail of the perpetrator. Both cases can be completed and solved independently of each other. (Only in German)

(Theme trail can be walked, provided there is not too much snow and the panels are not covered by snow).
