A unique trail experience in the largest nature park in Switzerland, Parc Ela!

A distinctive and unique trail experience, surrounded by steep mountain peaks, vast landscapes, glaciers and mountain lakes. In the heart of Graubünden, the Val Surses.

The T102 promises an epic trail run adventure, with the first climb among the most demanding and elevation challenges. Starting in Savognin, the route takes you to the enchanting Lai Tigiel, a picturesque mountain lake, and over challenging scree fields until you finally reach the impressive pass digls Orgels. The sight of this pass will immediately make you understand why it bears this name.

Your descent to Bergün takes you over scree slopes before continuing on to Naz. Then it’s up again, through forests, wide meadows and challenging gravel paths to Fuorcla Tschitta. Even before you reach the pass, the imposing Piz Ela appears in your field of vision and leaves an unforgettable impression. On the pass itself, a breathtaking panoramic view opens up, rewarding you for all your efforts.

From this point, you will lose altitude again as you pass by various majestic mountain peaks, admire the clear mountain lake Lai Grond and walk across green alpine pastures until you reach Alp d’Err. The route continues to the biodiversity of Alp Flix and up to Bivio. From there, the route goes uphill again in an impressive area, surrounded by imposing mountain peaks and lush pastures that constantly change nature, until you reach the Septimer Pass. Then you continue to Fuorcla Forcellina, where the view opens up into the high valley of Avers. After passing the deep blue Leg Columban, with a view up to Piz d’Err, you return to Bivio.

From Bivio the route leads via Sur and Plaz Beischen to Rona, followed by a final climb to Alp Tscharnoz. Via the bike path you finally reach the finish in Savognin. With over 6000 vertical meters climbed, this route is a real challenge and an unforgettable adventure.
