This hike offers a wonderful spectacle of nature: light-green lakes set in the heart of a barren mountain landscape. Highly recommended!

The hike begins at the Wägerhus Postauto bus stop. From here the trail runs in a north-easterly direction across pastures and scree, up the slope to Winterlücke.

From here hikers can enjoy a unique view of the Jöriseen lakes and the Jöri Glacier. Beyond them stretch the peaks of the Silvretta Massif and the Piz Linard.

Returning to the starting point takes you along the left-hand edge of the glacier and between the light-green waters of the Jöriseen lakes. A wonderful photo opportunity. 

From the lakes the trail continues upwards to the Jöriflüelafurgga and from there back down towards the valley and the Wägerhus.

Tip of the author
The largest of the lakes is milky-green in colour and is fed underground by the melt waters from the Jöri Glacier. Its runoff is the Jöribach stream, which gushes down into the Jöri valley and on to Vereina. The waters of the other lakes are dark blue and so clear that the lake bottom is visible.
Public Transit
Leave the bus at the Wägerhuus along the Flüela road. The trail begins behind the former refuge.
Parking
Free parking at Wägerhus, Flüelapassstrasse.
