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.
