The beginner tour starts at the village square in Silvaplana and first leads over the bridge to Surlej. After a first slight ascent, you reach the Palüd Lungia high moor. Keeping to the right at Lej Zuppò, the natural road leads past the former ski jump down to the tennis hall of St. Moritz and the Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bain. Now the tour follows the road up to St. Moritz Dorf until the roundabout at the hotels Schweizerhof, Hauser and Steffani. Shortly after the roundabout towards Somplaz, a gravel road leads diagonally uphill to the right. Follow this road in a large bend up to Salastrains and continue to Signal, the highest point of the tour. The descent to Champfèr is not very steep and leads through the famous Suvretta area with its beautiful villas. Through Champfèr you then reach Lake Champfèr and return to Silvaplana along the lakeside promenade.
