  • Guidebooks - Cicerone - Trekking in the Silvretta and Rätikon Alps

    By Kev Reynolds

    Straddling the borders of Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein, the limestone Rätikon Alps reach into the snow-bound and glacier-hung Silvretta Alps to provide a richly diverse series of landscapes. The Tour of the Silvretta, the Prättigauer Höhenweg and the Rätikon Höhenweg, all within easy reach of Klosters, have been devised to help trekkers explore the best of the region. Given sufficient time they can also be combined to create a continuous 2-week tour.

    This guide describes all three treks, step by step, as well as 12 short routes linking some of the area’s most idyllically-located huts, for those who prefer to plan their own tours.

    Sizing Information

    Technical Information

    • 3 treks between 5 and 8 days long, suitable for moderately experienced trekkers, with optional side excursions to climb nearby peaks
      • A Tour of the Silvretta Alps - this fairly strenuous hut-to-hut tour makes a counter-clockwise circuit of the Silvretta Alps over the course of about a week. With magnificent scenery throughout, there are several rugged passes to negotiate and a number of beautiful valleys to wander through.
      • The Prattigauer Hohenweg - a medium-grade multi-day route that works its way along the south flank of the Silvretta and Ratikon mountains between Klosters and Landquart. This very fine trek is demanding in places, but it rewards with numerous memorable views especially of the abrupt walls of the Ratikon mountains.
      • The Ratikon Hohenweg - the Ratikon Hohenweg Nord runs along the Austrian flank of the mountains, while a roughly parallel route known at the Ratikon Hohenweg Sud takes a similar course on the Swiss flank. By linking them at either end of the mountain range, a first class hut-to-hut circuit can be achieved.
    • 12 full- or half-day hut-to-hut routes
    • ncludes a hut directory with full information about all the mountain huts in the region, as well as language notes and recommended pre-holiday reading
    • Activities
    • Alpine trekking
    • Seasons - When snow has melted from the high passes and all the huts are open, the treks are best tackled from late June until the end of September.
    • Centres - Since these are multi-day routes there are no bases as such, but the treks either bein at, or pass through, Klosters, Lavin, St Antönien, Nenzinger Himmel and Brand.
    • Difficulty - No technical difficulty or special equipment will be required to tackle these routes under normal summer conditions, but the 7-8 day Tour of the Silvretta has several challenging and remote passes to cross and is suitable for experienced trekkers. The 5-day Prättigauer Höhenweg and 7-8 day Rätikon Höhenweg are both moderate.
    • Must See - Three great trekking routes among such peaks as Piz Buin, Piz Linard, Dreiländerspitz, Schesaplana, Sulzfluh and Drusenfluh, crossing the Vereina Pass, Furcletta, Pass Futschöl, Hochmaderer Joch, Gross Furgga, Verajöchl and Plasseggenpass, and visiting villages like Lavin, Guarda and St Antönien. The Silvretta has snowfields and glaciers, the Rätikon is limestone and almost dolomitic in grandeur.
