The old Avers road runs from the Roffla Gorge into the high valley of the Avers to Juf, the highest settlement in Europe to be occupied all year round. The historical transportation route was originally built in 1895 and, over the past few years, it has been re-instated as a hiking trail. This stage features wonderful arched bridges and impressive natural stone walls, typical Walser houses, and the high valley’s exceptionally rich alpine flora and fauna.

After Innerferrera wonderful arched bridges and impressive natural stone walls alternate with tombini (water culverts), making for an entertaining hike. At Avers Cröt the trail continues up a steep section leading on to the well-preserved Cresta Rhine bridge and two other ancient arched stone bridges, known as Furra, up to Avers-Cresta.

At Avers-Cresta the first views of the high valley open up, featuring typical Walser houses dotted about the valley, some of them more than 400 years old. The Walser people nurture their customs and traditions to this day, and that includes their own local dialect.
