Sardona World Heritage Trail

Multi-day mountain hike, the Royal Trail of the Sardona World Heritage

The Sardona World Heritage Trail is the backbone of the Sardona Geopark and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is signposted throughout as SchweizMobil-Route Nr. 73 ( SwissMobility Route No. 73). This route from Ziegelbrücke to Flims is designed to allow you to walk from accommodation to accommodation through the heart of the Sardona Geopark and the World Heritage for a week. On the way you will experience landscapes such as the Kerenzerberg along the Mürtschenstock, the Murg lakes, the Mühlebach valley and the Flumserberg, the karst area near the Schils spring, the fossil sites between Schönbühl, Fanser and Laui-Fürggli, the Weisstannen and Calfeisental valleys, the Heubützli and Foopass mountain passes as well as the visitor centre in Elm. Instead of one week, you can also go on a two or three day tour for partial stretches; or you can include further geo-sites and extend or change the hike as you wish.
