The classic Poschiavo hike takes us into the Val da Camp, now part of the Federal Inventory of Landscapes and Cultural Monuments of National Importance. It is a hike characterised by pastures, high-plateaus and lakes

In Sfazù the trail climbs as it follows the road. After the initial climb it reaches Buril before continuing gently upwards to the next settlements at Salva, Mottacalva, Lungacqua and Camp. Here the trails fork to the Lagh da Saoseo and the Lagh da Val Violavon respectively, where uninterrupted views open up to the Val Mera opposite.

The trail continues through an impressive landslide area down to the enchanting deep-blue waters of the Lago di Saoseo. A short steep descent takes us to the Lagh da Saoseo, from where the trail continues gently downwards. Walking through a mixed coniferous forest filled with an abundance of blueberry bushes and ferns, we finally reach Terzana.

Walking on pleasant hiking trails along the pastures we reach the branch-off to Sfazù and descend to the Campobach stream, which we then cross. On the other side of the river the trail continues steeply upwards, and soon we reach the settlement of Buril. The final ten minutes to Sfazù are along the road.
