Avers Valley–Surses–Val Bregaglia – a hiking paradise awaits you

The triangle formed by the Avers, Surses and Bergell valleys has some unusual highlights in store for hikers, such as the three-way water divide on the Lunghin Pass.

The Postbus journey to Juf seems almost unending. Situated at the far end of the Avers Valley, Juf is the highest permanently inhabited settlement in Europe.  At 2,126 metres above sea level, Juf is located above the tree line.


The entire route offers an exceptional variety in flora and fauna. Accompanied by the sounds of whistling marmots, you start out in Juf and head east, climbing steeply uphill, in the direction of the Treia creek to the saddle of Stallerberg (2579 m). Enjoy the panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and back to the Avers Valley from there. As you continue, you will recognize the road across the Julier Pass far in the distance. Later, you will pass some moor areas which are followed by the steep descent via Plan Tguils to Bivio (1769 m).


A short detour to the Flüeseen tarns at 2,682 m is certainly worth the effort.

Hiking time

approx. 3½ hrs.
approx. 4½ hrs. via Flüeseen


It also marks the start of the ascent to Forcellina Pass. At the top of the pass the view opens up to the south and the mountains of the Engadine and Bergell valleys. The trail descends past Leg da Sett to the Septimer Pass and continues to Bivio or to Casaccia in the Bergell Valley. As an alternative, you could hike up to the Lunghin Pass to the three-way water divide between Black Sea, North Sea and Mediterranean Sea. The headwaters of the Inn, Julia and Maira are located in this area. The descent takes you via Lake Lughin to Maloja.

Hiking time

approx. 4 ½ hours to Bivio
approx. 5 hours to Casaccia
