Hiking in Arosa
Arosa, the hiking paradise in Grisons
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. We suggest you also try our guided hiking tours.
The Grisons Hiking-App is a vital companion for the most beautiful tours in Grisons. It offers a continuously growing number of tours on topographic maps on a scale of 1:25'000. Handy – the maps can also be used offline! More content: peak collector contest, tour planner with automatic routing, configurable tachometer and peak finder.
