The Arosa Lenzerheide holiday region offers you the ideal setting for active summer days. Whether you're a pleasure hiker, a long-distance runner or a family tour, you're sure to find the right hike for your needs on more than 300 kilometers of marked hiking trails. The lake Untersee in Arosa and the lake Heidsee in Lenzerheide also provide refreshing cooling on hot days. Davos Klosters offers a hiking paradise in the heart of the Alps: well signposted hiking trails, panoramic views and around 700 kilometers of hiking trails through forests, side valleys and high peaks.

In June 2019, six adventurous bloggers will each be exploring a spectacular hiking route in various Swiss regions: Climb the Mythen near Lucerne, enjoy the view from the San Salvatore in Ticino or a relaxed rail hiking trip? Switzerland also has something for every type of hiker in the Valais, Graubünden and Bern region, with a wide variety of hiking trails to choose from — the path quickly becomes the destination! In this collection you can explore the high valleys, lakes and peaks in Graubünden together with "Marlenes Leben" (bhc2019.myswitzerland.com/region/graubuenden).

There's also a great competition: Test your knowledge of Switzerland and win your very own personal trip to Switzerland for two: With SWISS you fly to Switzerland, where you will explore the Bern region and Ticino. A total of five overnight stays await you at the Handeck Hotel and Natural Resort and the Hotel Belvedere Locarno. On top of that, you'll get two Swiss Travel Passes, with which you can use buses, trains and ships on your journey free of charge.

    The third stage in Grisons takes you over the Parpaner Rothorn and past the picturesque mountain lakes Älplisee and Schwellisee to the idyllic mountain village of Arosa. On the way you will be pampered on every step with magnificent views of the Grisons mountains.The gondola lift will take you to the Parpaner Rothorn early in the morning. At 2,865 meters, your gaze wanders over the high valley of Lenzerheide and the surrounding 1,001 mountain peaks. After leaving behind the barren lunar landscape on the summit, the hike leads you via Gredigs Fürggli past the crystal clear Älplisee and Schwellisee to Arosa. Before returning to civilization, there's a detour to the restaurant Alpenblick for a regional lunch. Strengthened, you continue hiking through the village of Arosa and past old Walser houses. For wildlife and nature lovers, Arosa is also worth a visit to Bärenland, on whose platform you can observe the bears saved from poor housing conditions.
