The tour begins on the panoramic mountain Piz Nair, which is easily reached by mountain railway (including bike transport) from St. Moritz or Celerina. First down a section on the ski slope, then turn right to Fuorcla Schlattain and now out of the valley to Lej Alv, where the 300-metre-long ascent begins. At first you can still ride, but after the junction at Trais Fluors you have to push the bike and even carry it in the last part up to Fuorcla Valletta. Carrying the bike requires good physical condition and surefootedness. The descent is unique and compensates for the exertions of the ascent! At the end of the valley, Alp Muntatsch awaits you with delicious food and cool drinks. From Alp Muntatsch, an alpine path leads down to Samedan.
