The third stage is the Pièce de Résistance of the Hut Tour Surselva. But the key data are more frightening than the stage actually is – especially since the track can also be significantly shortened at the end.

Anfänglich you roll down from Vrin to Surin and follow the signposted mountain bike route via Surcasti to Uors. Here it is worth taking the post bus for the ascent to Vals. This saves "only" 320 meters of altitude difference, but at least! Because on the third stage of the hut tour Surselva it is necessary to save energy for the upcoming ascent high to the Tomülpass. To do this, follow the signposted mountain bike route (Alpine Bike), first on asphalt, then on gravel and after the ridge on a well-rideable singletrail. On the last section after Alp Tomül, a sliding passage is always announced, except you have strength in your calves like Nino Schurter - or then just an e-bike. But the push is not in vain, because the upcoming section through the Safiental with the almost 40 kilometers is one of the longest mountain bike runs in the Alps. The first part leads along the historic mule route down to Safien Thalkirch. Now you change to the little-used road and later pass the village of Safien Platz. At the Rainmatte you leave the road, follow the brook Rabiusa, pass the reservoir and then climb up a few meters on the right side of the valley to finally reach the old Safierstrasse. From the road today only a singletrail is left, for mountain bikers therefore a fantastic section through enormously steep terrain. The route here is always interspersed with small tunnels. Later the path becomes wider again and on a road you roll the valley out to sigl ault.

At Sigl Ault, the wheat separates from the chaff on the final stage of the Surselva hut tour: if you have no more strength, roll down to Bonaduz and get on the train here for the return trip to Chur. But the original route still has a few highlights to offer. The section after the Sigl Ault is a trail treat unparalleled and leads high above the Rhine Gorge to the Versamerstrasse. Here is the next possibility to finish the stage with the flat ride to Bonaduz. But here, too, there is still something to experience on the original route, because the upcoming singletrail section past the ruins of Wackenau is no less attractive than the previous trail over the Rhine Gorge. In this way you get to Reichenau and get on the train back to Chur. As far as the recommended version for the third stage of the hut tour Surselva.


If you still don't have enough in Reichenau, follow the cycle path from Tamins in the direction of Chur and then change to the trail near the left bank of the Rhine before Felsberg. This trail leads to the Rossboden army compound, from where you roll along the cycle routes to Chur train station.
