A varied short tour into the Albula valley. Thanks to the low altitude, this tour can also be done as early as May.

This route leads through the impressive pine and larch forest near Lantsch/Lenz. In spring, thanks to the low altitude and plenty of sunshine, the tour is already doable from May. In autumn the forest turns a beautiful golden colour and makes this entertaining tour a unique experience. On the way back located between Surava and Brienz, the mighty ruin of Belfort awaits for further expeditions. It's worth putting your bike aside for a moment and taking in the view of the valley from the ruins.

On the trail from the campsite to Tiefencastel you have to pedal for a short time every now and then. The way back is never steep and thanks to the fluid trails at Lantsch / Lenz there is already an uphill flow experience. This characteristic makes this tour the ideal E-Bike round with a high single trail share.
