Panorama Trail by Vorab Glacier Map

To reach the starting point, take the Laax-Crap Sogn Gion lift from Laax up to Crap Masegn. Head towards the impressive Vorab Glacier, following the path just beneath it. The glacier is 2km long, forming part of the Glarus Alps, and stretches across the cantons of Glarus and Graübunden. The trail takes you to Nagens where you can take the cable car all the way down to Plaun.

Description

This route never drops below 2000 metres, so it's a great one if you want a short burst of high intensity running with awesome views!
