The ideal routes for day excursions (01, 17, 19) are generally open from mid-June to the end of October. Route 13 (Champlönch) is usually open earlier.
The first snowfall can occur as early as October, which may necessitate changes in the route. Up-to-date information on the current state of the paths can be found here.


The routes vary mainly in their length (see route descriptions) and the travel time from visitors’ locations to the starting point. Thematically, there is much to discover on all routes. Images and route information available on the website.
In autumn, Val Trupchun is ideal for observing the rut of the red deer. The Margunet nature trail leads through the forest of the Pass dal Fuorn and offers spectacular views from Margunet. The fascinating, wild Val Mingèr valley with its numerous cembra pines, is easily accessible from Scuol. The Champlönch route is somewhat shorter and is ideal for children.

A day excursion lasts 6-7 hours; at least half the time is spent walking (see route description) whilst the rest of the time is dedicated to observations, discussions and a picnic break.

Bookings at short notice are problematical, for organisational reasons. We therefore ask you to book 1-3 months ahead. For last-minute bookings we offer tourist excursions in German (book by 5 pm on day before. German spoken!).
In cases of emergency, excursions can be cancelled or postponed up to 72 hours ahead of the date reserved, either by contacting the guide concerned or at the National Park Centre +41 81 851 41 41. Last minute cancellations (72 hours or less before the date reserved) or non-appearance will be charged 80% of the agreed tariff.

Basically, yes!

Per guide maximum 20 people; for 21 people or more there must be a second guide. The smaller the group, the more you benefit from the presence of your guide.

Details of the meeting point can be discussed directly with your guide. Please travel in an environmentally friendly way by public transport. General information on travelling can be found ► here.



Guided excursions usually start between 8:00 and 10.00 am.

Yes, you can hire binoculars from the National Park Centre in Zernez, for CHF 20.–/day.
