Hiking in Arosa

Arosa, the hiking paradise in Grisons

Is hiking your passion? Arosa is an insider tip for those seeking peace and offers a suitable trouvaille for every taste. Arosa’s unique location differentiates it from other holiday regions. There are numerous treasures to be discovered. Be it a special legend hike, a stroll through picturesque forests or hikes to crystal clear mountain lakes, peaks of 2,900 metres and routes to many more natural gems – all of it can be experienced on our marked and well-kept hiking trails in and around Arosa.
Keep your eyes open! Hikers often observe squirrels, chamoises, marmots, red deer, ibexes, peregrine falcons and even golden eagles. Thanks to the fact that calcareous soil and soil poor in lime meet on narrow space between the Arosa village and the Weisshorn, over 900 different flowering plants, 30 ferns, 250 species of moss and mushrooms are able to grow and flourish.
