The town of Davos lies in a beautiful Alpine valley, right in the heart of Switzerland’s Graubünden and with over 700km of marked walking trails, is one of Switzerland’s top walking destinations. Excursions by train, bus and cable-car, and walks into the mountains, uncover a tapestry of traditional Swiss villages, dramatic views and abundant wildlife. Walkers have access to a vast supply of paths on both sides of the valley. Clavadeler Alp cheese factory or the Monstein brewery are within easy reach, whilst options for day trips include an enthralling ‘Bernina Express’ train ride down to Tirano in Italy.
