Almost 160 km of winter hiking paths

Winter hiking trail Ischalp to Clavadeleralp remains closed

For safety reasons it is not possible to lead the winter hiking trail Ischalp to Clavadeleralp over the newly built and mechanically snowed piste. Therefore, this winter hiking trail will remain closed during the winter season 2023/2024. Alternative: Winter hikers take the chairlift from Carjöl to Fuxägufer, which from there can reach Clavadeleralp via the winter hiking trail to Clavadel.

Winter hiking in Davos Klosters

You can also hike in winter. The easiest way is on our marked winter hiking trails, 111 km in Davos and 45 km in Klosters. On these snow-cleared walking trails, you can stroll leisurely or at a brisk pace through the snow-covered winter landscape.

It doesn't always have to be the highest peak or the longest route. On the contrary. A leisurely winter hike also belongs on the to-do list during a winter stay or ski holiday in Davos Klosters. Winter hiking is a classic that never goes out of fashion. No wonder: you explore the snow-covered winter landscape without elaborate equipment and without much effort. The mornings are particularly intense, when the day slowly awakens – and the scent of winter is literally in the air.

Eight tips for
Winter hiking in Davos Klosters


Berghaus Stafelalp: Up on foot, down by toboggan

The winter hiking trail starts in Davos Frauenkirch and leads up to Stafelalp at 1894 metres above sea level. The rustic mountain house has been around for over 250 years, but is bursting with cosiness. The hosts Maik and Cati serve homemade rösti or fondue. You return to the valley on a traditional wooden sledge, which you can borrow free of charge. An excursion away from the hustle and bustle.


Take a detour to Alp Garfiun

The winter hike from the Monbiel car park up to Alp Garfiun is a classic in Klosters. Especially for the whole family with prams and grandparents. Once you reach the top, host Marc Schlunegger awaits you with culinary delights. Tip: the homemade Früchtewähe, fondue or the deer sausage. If you like, take the horse-drawn carriage back down to the valley.

Take a winter hike with a panoramic view

There are two panoramic winter hiking trails on Pischa. Both tours start at the Pischa mountain station. The shorter route (1.3 km) is a circular route and leads rather flat towards the south. The longer route (6.3 km) takes winter hikers to the end point Hüreli at 2444 m above sea level - one of the most spectacular views of Davos.

Climb the Strelapass in winter

This winter hike takes you steeply up over the Strelaberg to the pub on the pass. At the top, a viewing terrace awaits with views of the Chüpfenflue, Schiahorn and Haupterhorn. And the Tinzenhorn shines in the distance. So the break can last a little longer. For example, with a piece of freshly baked apple strudel. Delicious!

Discover Klosters' local mountain on foot

You don't have to be a skier to enjoy the snow on sunny Madrisa. There are two routes to choose from for winter hiking: either from the mountain station to the Mässplatte or to the Zügenhüttli. Once you reach the latter, Vroni and her team will serve you homemade delicacies. Tip: venison salsiz, raclette or apple pie. Mhhh!

Marked winter hiking routes

Safe and secure winter hiking is possible in Davos Klosters on the following marked routes. Good to know: The winter hiking trail into the Dischma Valley (10 / 244) as well as into the Sertig Valley (19) are located along the road.

Wildlife Rest Areas & Game Reserves

The unexpected appearance of a freerider can be problematic for wild animals in winter: an escape costs a lot of energy, which is then lacking to survive. Four simple rules help.

Freeriders are happy about a lot of fresh snow. For wild animals, on the other hand, this means one thing above all else: a naked fight for survival. Because what deer, deer, chamois and ibex normally scrape out of the snow to eat is now under a thick blanket of snow. Wild animals are therefore forced to use their energy sparingly. If they are disturbed and forced to flee, their survival is at risk.

4 rules while being out there

  • Respect designated wildlife areas and wildlife reserves
  • Stay on paths and marked trails in the forest
  • Avoid forest edges and snow-free surfaces
  • Keep your dog on a lead, particularly in the forest
