VIA SEPTIMER

VIA SEPTIMER AN UNFORGETTABLE HISTORICAL TRAIL

 

The Via Septimer with the Via Spluga and Via Bregaglia are three classic and cultural hiking routes in the central Alps which, throughout the centuries, have linked the town of Chiavenna to the towns on the north 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 Bregaglia, Via Spluga 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 something like their natural 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 company with the local population.

The Via Septimer trail connects in 6 stages the historical city of Chur to Chiavenna across the pass of Septimer, walking through Lenzerheide, the Surses valley and the characteristic villages of Savognin and Bivio.

It is possibile to walk or to mountain bike across the Septimer pass in one day only from Bivio, in the Surses valley, to Casaccia, in the Bregaglia valley.
