#1: Welschtobel Tour

The Welschtobel Tour should be on every bucket list of an Enduro or All-Mountain rider. There are two variants:
1. tour analogous to the tour description according to the link over the Parpaner Rothorn: Includes a 1.5 hour carrying march. But the descent is definitely worth the effort! Length: 32.1 km / difference in altitude: +/-2'483 m (with track), condition: 5/5 and technique 4/5
2nd tour via Lenzerheide to Alavaneu: With this choice of route, you can look forward to a lush 1,500 metres of altitude difference, which require good thigh muscles. For those who prefer this to carrying their bike for 1.5 hours. Go for it. Either way, the descent is brilliant!

Tip: Plan the tour as a two-day tour with overnight stay in the Ramozhütte. Not because the tour is not feasible in one day, but because an overnight stay in the SAC Ramozhütte is simply brilliant!

#3: Arosa Cable car tour

The cable car tour in Arosa is easy with the Weisshorn cable car and the Hörnli Express. At the Hörnli you don't enjoy the comfortable descent over the Hörnli Trail, but face the tricky task of a difficult single trail down towards Lake Schwellisee. Take up the challenge! And the good news is that the trails are short and you can try it more than once a day to improve your technique.

Length: 26.3 km / difference in altitude: -1'800 m
Conditions: 3/5 and technique 4/5

#4: Plessur Run

A little inside: At the start or end of your bike stay in Arosa, it's worth making a short detour to Langwies. The descent includes forest roads in between, but in between there are two very exciting single trail descents.

Please try it out - it is also very popular with locals as an evening run.

#5: Medergen

The small Walser village of Medergen is not far from Arosa and with its rustic houses, a mountain inn without electricity and its view of the Schanfigg valley creates a unique oasis of well-being. And these are not just beautiful words, they are fact! All the better, one can visit the little village with an ascent of around 700 metres in altitude, followed by a super cool, partly technical descent back to Arosa.

Length: 19.6 km / difference in altitude: +/-773 m
Conditions: 4/5 and technique 4/5

#6: Bike & Grill

Enduro biking is only riding single trails, but also a certain lifestyle. This lifestyle meets during the summer season on selected Saturday evenings at the Hörnli, rides the Hörnli Trail and enjoys a fine sausage in the Alpenblick. The perfect relaxation programme alongside all the crunchy tours.
