The impressive alpine hut hike, rich in experiences and views, begins in the Chur Rhine Valley, in the village of Haldenstein opposite Chur. The mighty Calanda massif towers imposingly in front of the Alpine City. You can enjoy a gentle ascent into the beautiful nature and the view becomes more and more impressive the higher you climb. The ascebt to the Calanda hut is about 1,500 metres. Those who still have energy left at the top can also master the ascent to the summit of Haldensteiner Calanda. This is another 800 metres of altitude difference, but the panoramic view is more than worth it.


The next day, one crosses from the hut over the Felsberger and Taminser Älpli to the historic Kunkelspass. An ideal place to strengthen yourself in the Überruf mountain restaurant. One is now officially in the perimeter of the UNESCO World Heritage Sardona and can inform in detail about it in the information room next to the restaurant. The ascent to the Ringelspitzhütte follows, from where you have a great view of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and the clearly visible Glarus main thrust at the Ringelspitz summit. After the second overnight hut stay the descent follows through the picturesque Lavoitobel, which is characterised by alpine rocky landscapes and the idyllic Lavoi stream. Further down follows a leisurely descent through secluded forests until you finally reach the Rhine Valley again and the village of Tamins. From there you can easily reach the city of Chur and the main railway station for the return journey by bus.
