Pure pleasure in the nature park of the Safiental

Switzerland - Europe

Safiental - Safien Valley
05.01 - 08.01.2023
Welcome to the decelerated Safiental, where life is still a bit more cosy and the silence is impressive. In this true winter fairytale landscape, we experience ski touring delights and a living Walser culture that accompanies us at every turn. The seclusion of the Safiental is part of the Beverin Nature Park, officially a "Regional Nature Park of National Importance" since 2013.
The Safiental is a touring pearl in a class of its own. The valley stretches from Versam 30 kilometres to the south and is accordingly spared from daytime tourism. This leaves plenty of space for enjoyable, quiet ski tours in a quiet and intact natural landscape. Due to its location and altitude, the valley is snow-sure and always offers perfect conditions for unforgettable tours.

With our excellent knowledge of the area, we are sure to always find the best snow on the most beautiful slopes. Mountain experiences with pleasure!

Your advantages at a glance:

- enjoyable ski tours over gentle slopes, great descents included

The Safiental is a touring pearl in a class of its own. The valley stretches from Versam 30 kilometres to the south and is therefore spared from daytime tourism. This leaves plenty of space for enjoyable, quiet ski tours in a quiet and intact natural landscape. Due to its location and altitude, the valley is snow-sure and always offers perfect conditions for unforgettable tours. Our Gasthof Gasslihof is simple and traditional, without the unnecessary frills of modern civilisation. Instead, there is more time for enjoyment, relaxation, peace and cosiness. It's great to have you with us in this wonderful valley!

Day 1: Meeting point at 8.15 a.m. at Reichenau-Tamins station. For a decelerated and relaxed journey without stress, we recommend spending the night from Wednesday to Thursday already at the Gasslihof. After checking the equipment, we set off on our first tour. From Under Camana, 1630 m, we enjoy a varied ascent to one of the numerous humps of the Camaner ridge, 2475 m. The wide ridge leaves us plenty of space. The wide ridge leaves us plenty of space for the rewarding descent!

Day 3: Today we visit one of the great classics in the valley. Depending on the conditions, we climb from Bäch or Thalkirch in an exciting route to the Tällihorn, 2856m. The descent takes us over the wide eastern slopes back to the valley, with a stop at the famous Turrahus.
1200 m altitude difference, ascent time approx. 4 hours.

Day 4: Final tour to the local mountain of Safien Platz, the Plangghorn, 2581 m. We start the ascent in Hof, 1658 m, and shortly before the summit through the avalanche barriers visible from afar. The descent then takes us directly back to Safien Platz, 1270 metres of downhill pleasure to finish the tour! We end our last day on the terrace with a well-deserved final drink!
