All around LA VAL

Did you know that Brigels is one of the places with the longest hours of sunshine in Switzerland? Or that the automobile club ADAC named the Brigels ski region number 1 in the category “small and select”? Have you heard of the one-of-a-kind golfing idyll on the Brigels panorama plateau with the breathtaking views of the Grisons Alps? Or do you know the “Uaul Scatlè”, the highest-altitude virgin spruce forest in Europe? 

This and much more awaits you at our hotel in Brigels. Look forward to being pleasantly surprised!

Summer activities

The mountains of Graubünden are transformed into a glorious natural paradise during the summer months. Beyond the reach of mass tourism you can explore and enjoy the wonders of nature at your own relaxed pace.

The region has a comprehensive range of leisure activities to offer for hikers and bikers, as well as mini-golf, tennis, rock-climbing and Nordic walking. River rafting is also possible in the nearby Rhine Gorge.


Enjoy a round of golf on one of the most beautiful golf courses that Switzerland has to offer. Just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel, a 9-hole course awaits you on the sundrenched Tschuppina plateau and rewards you with a wonderful view. There are also two other golf courses nearby: the 18-hole Buna Vista Golf in Sagogn (21.5 km) and the 9-hole Golf Club in Sedrun (28 km). 


Over 150 kilometres of hiking routes and mountain trails lead you through the varied and sun-blessed landscapes around Brigels up to 2,729 metres above sea level. Whether you prefer a leisurely stroll or a hike over several days, there’s the right route for every level of ambition. In particular a ramble through “Uaul Scatlè”, the highest virgin spruce forest in Europe, can be recommended without reservation to anyone who enjoys hiking.


From simple meadow paths to challenging tours, the extensive network (1,299 km) of mountain bike trails between the source of the River Rhine and the Rhine Gorge offers everything that bikers dream of. The Tura Roiala (“royal” tour), for example, which covers a distance of 71km and incorporates an altitude difference of around 2,700 metres, is a challenge even for seasoned bikers. If you prefer things somewhat more relaxed, you can hire an electro-bike and explore the surroundings and natural beauty in comfort.

Winter activities

The winter transforms Brigels in Graubünden into a true paradise for anyone who loves winter sports with plenty of snow. With excellent slopes and cross-country trails as well as unique winter sports offerings, there’s recreation and fun for everyone right in the heart of the winter. Cross-country skiers can look forward to 25 kilometres of well-prepared trails, and tobogganing fans have a field day on several attractive runs in Brigels and the surrounding area. And for snowshoe fans there are various attractive trekking routes.

Skiing / Snowboarding

Small enough to not get lost, yet with thrilling expanses of landscape. No queues, no rush. Instead, over 50 kilometres of perfectly prepared ski and snowboard pistes with many different variants at attractive prices. The ski region was awarded first place by the ADAC Travel Magazine in the “small and select” category in 2009. The valley station and the snow sports school can be reached on foot or with the free local shuttle. Anyone who skis here has plenty of space and kilometres of slopes to enjoy.
