Arrival information

From Tannenheim the gondola lift takes you up to Prodalp, then the 8-seater chair lift takes you to Prodkamm. Hike along the beautiful and interesting high trail to Maschgenkamm. Further possibility from Prodalp via shuttle "FlumsiTrain" and 6-seater chairlift Panüöl to the Maschgenkamm. From Maschgenkamm you hike on a flat path to Zigerfurgglen and follow the hiking trail there, which leads over magnificent meadows and fresh mountain streams via Calanshüttli to Spitzmeilenhütte. Another option would be to ascend via Zigerfurgglen to Sächserseeli and on to Hoch Camatsch, from there back down to Calans and then on to Spitzmeilenhütte (approx. 2.5 - 3 h hiking time).

Take a rest in the cosy hut before taking the path back under your feet. From the Spitzmeilenhütte SAC follow the hiking trail up to the Spitzmeilen, enjoy the magnificent view of the mountains and then continue to Fansfurggla and past the Chammseeli. Follow the hiking trail to Madchopf and Weisstannen. In Weisstannen you can stay overnight at the Hotel Alpenhof and return the next day by public transport to the Flumserberg.

Please note that the Maschgenkamm gondola lift will be rebuilt in summer 2019.
