The route over the Schlinig pass used to be a smugglers’ path for bringing coveted wares such as coffee or cigarettes over the border. Smuggling in Alpine border areas was often an important additional source of income for the local population in the past. Where smugglers’ paths used to run, there are now hikers. One of the paths leads around 19 kilometres from Schlinig into Unterengadin valley. This hike, which is steeped in history, requires a modicum of fitness, yet hikers are rewarded with a breathtaking view of South Tyrol’s highest mountain, the Ortler.

Skiing and cross-country fun

The road to Schlinig leads right past the valley station for Watles ski slopes. The popular ski area at the border triangle with Switzerland and Austria has wide pistes and fantastic views, as well as 18 kilometres of piste that are especially suitable for families. Children can let off steam in the children’s area, the ski-cross piste or on the four-kilometre-long natural sledge run. Lots of paths lead snowshoe walkers and ski tourers into the high mountains from Schlinig.

Cross-country skiers will get their money’s worth in Watles, too: in Nordic Schlinig ski centre there are 15 kilometres of trails for beginners and advanced skiers to try. The trails are well prepared, as the centre sets its standards high and international cross-country ski races take place here.

Mountain hike to Monterodes

A mountain hike to Monterodes promises breathtaking Alpine views and lots of unspoilt nature. The 2,361-metre-high mountaintop lies to the south of Schlinigtal valley. The hike starts in Schlinig and leads towards the mountain to an isolated pasture, the Kälberalm. Hikers will already be able to enjoy spectacular views of Schlinigtal valley, the Sesvennagruppe and Watles mountains.

You carry on going up towards the mountain saddle to reach Monterodes, and, after crossing a mountain ridge, you are nearly at the top. Once up there, there are fabulous views from Reschen to the Ortlergruppe mountains to be had. To return, either you go back the same way, or you cross the Schleiser Alm through Arundatal valley.

Mountain bikers will leave the tidy little mountain village behind them as they head off into some stunning landscape. It’s worth dismounting and taking a rest from time to time to better appreciate the amazing Alpine flora. There is a steep stretch going past Schliniger Alm pasture in the Sesvennahütte direction, where a gripping trail awaits involving a 100-metre climb to Schlinig pass, which is surrounded by wetlands and their typical plants.

Then there is a descent to the impressive Uinaschlucht gorge. Pushing bikes for the next few kilometres is recommended. At the end of the gorge there is an 8.5-km-long descent to the little Swiss village of Dur En and then on to Scuol and Passo Costainas. After heading down to Lü, bikers will come across some easy trails to Müstair. This is where they can join a cycle path to Mals - and back to South Tyrol – eventually getting back to Schlinig.
