Witness the pioneering efforts of man and nature on the Path of the Pioneers, which takes you to the geographic centre of Graubünden. The Crap Furò natural forest reserve is home to one of the most diverse forests in Switzerland on such a small area.

Author’s recommendation

Der Pfad der Pioniere eignet sich auch als Ausflug für Schulklassen. Auf Wunsch bietet der Verein Parc Ela geführte Exkursionen an.

Beautiful path, exceptional scenery. Beware that there are currently several path interruptions between point 10 and 11, as the path has been overrun with rocks; therefore, we would not recommend it for families with children younger than 12. Solid shoes and sure footedness are a must. We have contacted the park today about these interruptions.
