Softly Mobile Holiday in Arosa (Switzerland)

Fun-Filled Winter and Summer in the Swiss Alps

For sustainable holidays with incredible discounts, look no further than Arosa, climatic spa town in the Alps.  A direct train ride from Chur to Arosa makes for an easy trip, its location at the tail end of a valley ensures little to no traffic plus the free use of the local bus is a welcome relief for your wallet.  Let yourself be pampered by many hours of sunshine in the Swiss canton of Grisons. In Arosa, we guarantee sunshine all year round and snow in the winter.  Situated at 1,800 m above sea level, this charming village is ideally located for many activities in the snow during the winter. The ski lift ticket doubles as ticket for public transportation. Strap on your skis at the hotel and off you go for hours of excitement. If you’d rather walk, romantic snow-covered winter trails are waiting to be explored.

This area boasts 200 km of hiking trails through green meadows and along crystal clear mountain lakes. So summers are no time for boredom either. In the summer, our overnight guests receive a free “all inclusive” Arosa Card, ensuring free mobility for many fun activities in the mountains.  Use this card for cable cars and buses at no cost to you for as long as you stay here.  And it doesn’t stop there. This all-inclusive card gives you free access to many other recreational offers.
