The most beautiful Helsana trails with mountain lakes: information about the routes

The Helsana trail in Arosa offers four signposted circular routes. The shortest route of 2.6 kilometres and a 51-metre elevation gain is also suitable for less-experienced runners. Those looking for a challenge can opt for one of the three routes between seven and ten kilometres that lead towards Prätsch or via the midway station of the Weisshornbahn cable car. These are also suitable for walking, Nordic walking or hiking.

The trail around and above Alt St. Johann in the Toggenburg region offers no less than five routes. They can be easily combined, supplemented with a visit to the "sound trail" or shortened with a ride on the chairlift to Alp Sellamat and the Iltios funicular.

The three Helsana trails in Davos are located below the Jakobshorn. The starting point for all three is the base station of the Jakobshornbahn cable car, Davos Platz. There are suitable routes for all levels and disciplines, whether jogging, walking or hiking.

The three trails in Flims offer multiple hot spots, including Lake Cauma and the Il Spir observation deck with views of the Rhine Gorge. If you fancy a swim, choose the green trail stretching five kilometres, while those in search of panoramic views should opt for the yellow route (ten kilometres, can be shortened). Don’t miss the fork in the direction of Conn/Il Spir.
