A challenging start: a steep climb up to Alp Nursera. At the highest point: superb flora and sweeping views – protected silver thistles below, Piz Grisch behind you and the Teurihorn ahead of you. A glimpse of Lake Sufers, and then the pass village of Splügen welcomes you with its Italianate palaces and Walser houses.
