An impressive educational trail was set up in 2007 to teach people about this wild glacier landscape. The circular route, which heads into the forefield of the glacier, features 15 information panels providing interesting facts and figures about climate change and an alpine landscape in constant change. The starting point is the Silvretta Mountain Hut at a height of 2,341 metres. If the climb from Klosters is too far, it is also possible to take the bus taxi (Gotschna taxi) to Alp Sardasca, shortening the climb to the mountain hut. This description starts from Alp Sardasca.

 

The educational Silvretta Glacier Trail winds its way over some four kilometres across the forefield of the Silvretta Glacier. En route, you will climb approximately 300 metres in altitude. Yellow-and-blue signposts show the way. 15 information panels are positioned along the circular route, which provide information and diagrams about local features, but also demonstrate the correlations between climate warming, the role of humans etc.

The circular hiking route described here follows the old mule track to climb up to the Silvretta Mountain Hut, takes the circular Glacier Trail and then descends back to the Alp through the breathtakingly beautiful Galtürtälli valley.
