Fantastic circular tour in Arosa. Taking in four mountain lakes, this tour offers a lot of nature experiences for all. And the single track on the panorama path above Lake Schwelli is a delight to ride along.

The tour starts in Arosa and proceeds via the Scheitenböden to the Prätschli. From there a leisurely ride along the Arlenwaldweg with a fabulous view towards Medergen takes you to the middle station. At sunset this is a particularly impressive, not-to-be-missed experience. The route continues to ascend consistently until there is a brief descent after passing under the Carmenna chairlift. Taking a break to enjoy some refreshments and the view on the terrace at the Restaurant Alpenblick is highly recommended.

From the restaurant there is a challenging single track above Lake Schwelli to Arve. From there you can enjoy the descent to Bärenbad before putting your skills to the test again on single tracks right through the middle of the forest.

Just before you reach the Alteiner Waterfalls the route takes you right through the middle of the wild and natural Isla to the reservoir and the final ascent to Arosa.
