VIA SPLUGA HISTORICAL TRAIL

VIA SPLUGA THE HISTORICAL TRAIL ACROSS THE SPLUGENPASS

 

An unforgettable itinerary of 60km though untouched nature, historical villages and local art.

Both the Via Spluga and Via Bregaglia are two classic and cultural hiking routes in the central Alps which, throughout the centuries, have linked the town of Chiavenna to the towns at the northern side of the alps, over the passes of Splugen (2115m), Septimer (2311m) and Maloja(1815m).

They bring together people from Grigione, Rhaeto-Romance, Walser and the population of Lombardia.

Most of the Via Spluga, Via Bregaglia and Via Septimer paths wind their ways gently along old mule-tracks which have either maintained their original characteristics or have at least been restored to a similar to the original state.

The routes, as well as offering the opportunity to appreciate a piece of genuine history, also permit the walker to get to know a very particular mountain terrain in the company of local people.

The Via Spluga trail connects Chiavenna to Thusis over Splugenpass (About 60km) and the exemplary villages of Campodolcino, Splugen and Andeer. Exceptional points are the canyons of Cardinello and Via Mala.

 

It is possible to enjoy a shorter part of the Via Spluga Trail with 2 days of trip, from Splugen to Campodolcino. In summer a daily bus connects these two villages.

Organised trips (2 or 3 days) are available directly at the local tourist offices.
