Andeer - Valley Schons: Pleasure and Wellness as season prelude

Switzerland - Europe

Andeer - Andeer
22.01 - 27.01.2023
In Andeer we are at the intersection of three large Graubünden high valleys, the Val Schons or Schamserberg, the Rheinwald and the Avers. The touring possibilities are fantastic, the snow is always good somewhere and relaxation is not neglected in the Andeer mineral baths.
We will be accommodated and pampered in the traditional Hotel Fravi, which was built in 1828 by Johann Jakob Fravi Gondini as a bathing and spa hotel. The hotel has direct access to the mineral baths! A ski touring week could not be more beautiful and enjoyable.

Your advantages at a glance:

- enjoyable day tours with light backpacks in Val Schons, Avers and Rheinwald
- first-class accommodation in the traditional Hotel Fravi
- direct access to the bathing and sauna area in the mineral baths of Andeer
- in Graubünden we are at home, here we know every stone :-)

Pure enjoyment and wellness is the motto of this week, spiced with a pinch of culture and history. An ideal start to the ski touring season, for pleasure-seekers and those who want to leave the hustle and bustle of everyday life and stress behind and switch off.
We are at home in Graubünden, here we know every peak and can offer you a great tour every day with the best possible snow conditions. After the tours we visit local restaurants and sights and of course benefit from the spa, which we reach directly from the hotel.

Day 1: Meeting point at 18.00 at the Hotel Fravi in Andeer. You can check into your room from 2.30 p.m. so that you can already benefit from the mineral bath on the first day. Dinner together, equipment check and discussion of the first tour.
