Swiss-O-Finder, Minor treasure hunt and bear adventure trail
The concept of the game
The project was launched by Swiss Orienteering, the Swiss Association of Cross-Country Runners, and intends to promote an active lifestyle by simply combining two different skills: orientation and walking or running. The focus is set on the experience and on successfully finding the best route to the corresponding target.
This is how it works
Pick up a free map at any of the three starting points listed below, and off you go.

Minor treasure hunt
Around the Arosa Bear Sanctuary, at the middle station of the cable car Arosa-Weisshorn, squirrels have hidden. Who will find them? Starting in summer 2019, young and old can go on a treasure hunt for the squirrels carved out of wood and win great prizes. Those who find all the squirrels and mark them on the treasure map will receive a free Minörli (chocolate) as a reward from the restaurant Brüggerstuba. The hiking day in Arosa or the visit to the Arosa Bear Sanctuary can now be continued strengthened. There, bears can be observed in the spacious, natural outdoor enclosure.
Bear Sanctuary adventure trail
Welcome to the adventure trail. You can't miss our stars of the trail - 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. Once you have found all the bears and measured them, you will find out which is the biggest. Present the complete flyer at the guest information desk of Arosa Tourism (sports and congress centre in the village) and receive a big bear surprise.
The flyers are available at the guest information desk of Arosa Tourism or in the Arosa Bear Sanctuary.
The route leads from the Arosa Bear Sanctuary to the Tschuggenhütte, past the "Bergkirchli" (old chapel) and to the Kulmwiese.
