Breath-taking rock formations, lofty peaks and a wide view over the mountain tops into the distance. The Vals Valley is a top class rock climbing area. You can climb the most beautiful routes and go on a voyage of discovery on paths that hardly anyone knows with a trained mountain guide.
Exiting trails through the Vals Valley
The landscape of the Grisons mountains is an incomparable challenge for mountain bikers. Cycling over rough terrain, through dense fir forests up to airy Alpine heights beyond the tree line. All this gives you a feeling of fulfilment and joie de vivre. More than 50 km of signposted bike trails await you in the Vals valley.
A paradise for hikers and climbers
Wander through a unique flora and fauna, catch the flight of a shy wild animal or hear the marmots whistle. You can experience untouched nature in the unique nature of the Vals. Even the most ambitious mountain lovers have fun here. As the southernmost branch of the Bündner Oberland, the Vals Valley extends far into the glaciated main ridge of the Alps. The mountains of the Länta and the rear Peil and Canal valley offer experienced mountaineers a wealth of exciting and eventful alpine tours.
The popular lookout point
Our hut is situated at the most beautiful and popular lookouts of Vals. A very special, moving place, to which many people like to return again and again.
Snow sports on the Dachberg
The ski area of Vals is small but beautiful. It includes about a dozen different slopes of all levels of difficulty. The gondola and ski lifts take you up to an altitude of almost 3000 metres, where you can enjoy a magnificent view over many of the Alpine peaks.
The Dachberg, as our ski area is called, is a quiet, private winter sports area. You almost never have to stand in line here.

Untouched nature, animals tracks in the snow and tranquillity that you rarely find elsewhere. Sporting activity and an impressive view, the Vals Valley offers a variety of summit tours. Guided tours can be booked.
In the open air
Snowshoeing is a very special winter nature experience. Diverse snowshoe routes will lead you to impressive vantage points with views of the striking Vals mountains (such as Gadastatt-Kristallloch-Bidanätsch-Gadastatt, duration 3 hours). There is a marked snowshoe route in the Gadastatt-Bidanätsch area. Tours must be judged and decided according to weather and snow conditions. If you would like to explore your own paths, you should do so with great caution and experience.
If there is fresh snow, your snowshoe tour can start directly at the hotel. Ask us about it. We will be happy to help you. Snowshoes and poles are available for use free of charge. A private tour guide can be arranged according to availability.
