After the ride in the gondola from Tigignas to Somtgant, a wonderful panorama is waiting for you. The winter hiking trail leads across the Alp Somtgant to Radon, and then to Tigignas.

You are always accompanied by the views of the three «Bergüner Stöcke» - Piz Ela, Piz Mitgel and Tinzenhorn. Piz Ela is by the way also the eponym of the regional nature park «Parc Ela». Ela stands for «wings» in Romansh.

After the short hike to Alp Somtgant, the brought along sledge can be used for the descent since the winter hiking trail is also used as a cosy tobogganing run. In Radon or Tigia, restaurants invite you to a stay on the sun terrace. The winter hiking trail continues to Tigignas.
