Juf is Europe's highest (2126 meter) village inhabited year-round.
The Swiss village is situated in the Östlicher Alpen Nordhang, about 21 km West
of Sant Moritz.
An ideal base camp for a week touring in the surrounding area.
Tour possibilities ranging from simple (L) to Quite Difficult (ZS) and from a 2
hour walk to "as long you like".
The tour plan comprise the following itinerary:
Uf da Flüe
Stallerberg - Bivio - Mot Scalotta - Juf
All described routes are day tours, starting en ending in Juf.
I can recommend the climbing of the Piz Surpare in combination with the
roundtrip Stallerberg - Bivio - Mot Scalotta - Juf .
From the peak of the Piz Surpare you have a very nice view and a beautiful
descent to Bivio.
On the way back you can take a ski lift. This will bring you to an altitude of
For the Val Bercla route you have to cross two cols.
The last one, Fuorcla Bercla is quit steep and you might need a rope and
crampons as well for the first 20 meters.
This part of the route has not been described by the SAC guidebook.
All together a rewarding tour with a constantly changing scenery.
You won't find a SAC-hut in Juf but Pension Edelweis can offer you a suitable
accommodation as well.
Other nice hamlets in the valley of Avers, where you might want to stay, are
Juppa, Am Bach, Pürt and Cresta.
Juf is located at the far most end, following by Juppa, and so on.
