Special dog trails in Davos

There are three special dog trails in Davos. On 18.5 kilometres the four-legged friends can accompany their owners on the cross-country ski trail. A true nature experience.

Davos offers three specially marked dog trails.

Dog owners know only too well that their four-legged friend likes to romp in snow. Often, however, dogs are not seen or even undesirable on cross-country skiing trails. Unlike in Davos, there are three specially marked dog trails:

  • Bolgen - Iceland
  • Iceland - Frauenkirch
  • Frauenkirch - Ara Gadenstatt

Dogs are allowed to accompany their owners on a total of 18.5 km of trails. It doesn't matter if the dogs leave a few paw prints in the tracks. The only rule: please take into account other cross-country skiers so that the shared use of the cross-country skiing trails remains a pleasant experience for all.

Herzloipe trail in Davos for beginners and heart patients

At the Davos Cross-Country Ski Centre there is a special trail called "Herzloipe". This is a short, flat circuit - especially for cross-country ski beginners and all those who want to strengthen their heart.

The Herzloipe Davos makes cross-country skiing easier for beginners - and trains the heart.

A short, signalled circuit without climbs, external defibrillators for emergencies and a good infrastructure on site: The Herzloipe trail at the Cross-Country Ski Centre Davos makes it easier for heart patients and beginners to get into cross-country skiing. 

Ten heart tracks throughout Switzerland

These special Herzloipen have been in existence since 2015 in Switzerland and the network of cross-country ski trails has been continuously expanded since then: With the Davos route, there are now a total of ten special cross-country ski trails. In Davos, the Herz-Reha, the community, the Davos Cross-Country Ski School, the cross-country skiing centre, Hofmänner Sport, the Swiss Heart Foundation and the Davos Klosters destination work closely together - and together with the Herzloipe offer a coordinated programme. Good to know: A visit to the Herzloipe is free of charge - as with all cross-country trails in Davos Klosters.

Testimonials of the "Herzloipe" Davos
Christopher Tillmann, former rehab patient of the Heart Rehabilitation Davos

"I'm thrilled with Davos. After only one hour and the valuable input of the cross-country skiing instructor, I was able to master the "Herzloipe" well. I look forward to spending more time for cross-country skiing here. It's important to get people to move around. The "Herzloipe" trail is perfect for this, as it is flat and offers beginners and patients a great experience."

Michael Riklin, former rehab patient of the Heart Rehabilitation Davos

"It is a beautiful and very suitable cross-country skiing trail. It is highly recommended with good care for former patients. The caring factor seems to me to be an important aspect, so that one learns cross-country skiing correctly from the beginning and does not physically overreach oneself. This worked out very well here in Davos."
