Schanfigger Höhenweg

Der Schanfigger Höhenweg kann in sechs Tages-Etappen bewältigt werden und führt über markierte Wanderwege oberhalb der Waldgrenze rund ums Schanfigg. Durch duftende Alpwiesen über kleine Bäche vorbei an lauschigen braungebrannten, windschiefen Bargen marschieren, bedeutet Erholung für Körper und Seele. Und die grandiose Bergkulisse über dem Schanfigg ist Belohnung genug, den Höhenweg unter die Füsse zu nehmen. Auf der Peister Alp trifft man zufrieden weidende Kühe, die den Wanderern neugierig entgegenblicken. Gemütliche Hütten und heimelige Gasthäuser entlang der Wanderroute laden die Berggänger zum Verweilen und Übernachten ein.
