The Heidi & Gigi trail can be started in Arosa as well as Lenzerheide. At the latest since the inauguration of the aerial tramway Urdenbahn, "LenzerHeidi" and "Gigi of Arosa" go hand-in-hand. And every now and then they also visit each other by foot and enjoy the beautiful view from the peaks and have a drink or two at the various restaurants along the way. Follow the connecting trail and fall in love the unique panorama of Heidi and Gigi.



During a visit to the Hörnlihütte, you can indulge in culinary delights or enjoy the mountain panorama on one of the cosy deckchairs.
