The tour begins with the steady ascent from Samnaun Dorf (1840 m) along a forest path toward Motta Saltuorn. The forest cabin is closed, but nevertheless the surroundings with fountain, small pond, tables and benches invite you linger. From here it is not far to Val Motnaida, where the forest path ends (2,147 m). There are further benches a few metres above the forest path which offer beautiful vistas of Samnaun Dorf, Piz Ot and toward Zeblasjoch. The return journey takes the same route back to Samnaun Dorf.
