Pizol Panorama High Altitude Trail

The circular trail in and over the UNESCO World Heritage Tectonic Arena Sardona with a breathtaking panoramic view on the Pizol high plateau.

Between Laufböden and the Pizol hut, stretched out on the Pizol high plateau, is a magnificent circular hiking trail. The crowning glory is the accessible summit panorama as well as the photo stele of the Grand Tour of Switzerland on the viewpoint Tagweidlichopf. The circular trail is dedicated to the UNESCO World Heritage Tectonic Arena Sardona. The hike offers sensational views of the surrounding mountains and, thanks to the information panels, interesting insights into the formation of the Alps in the region.
