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 sifficient time they can also be combined to create a continuous 2-week tour.
The Silvretta and Rätikon may stand together, but their geology and landscapes are vastly different. Together, they feature picturesque alpine villages, a large selection of mountain huts and a range of walkers' passes to provide excellent trekking.
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.
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.
Along with detailed route descriptions, maps, information on travel to and around the area, practical tips on equipment and trekking logistics, as well as details on climbable peaks and points of interest, are all included.
