The Hochjoch cable car takes you up from Schruns to the summit station at Kapell (1,874m). Continue towards Seebliga and through the ski tunnel into the Seetal. Passing Lake Schwarzsee, Lake Kälbersee and Lake Herzsee we continue to the Wormser hut. Below the ridge we reach in a few minutes the station of the Sennigrat lift, with which we make the descent to get back to the starting point. Of course this tour can also be done in the reverse direction.

Aufstieg von Kapell aus Richtung Sennigrat Station. Sehr schön aber auch etwas Anspruchsvoll! Die Seerunde ist sehr schön! Nebel/Wolken machten es für uns Perfekt! Abstieg bis zur Kapell über die Rot/weiße Strecke gut, inclusive Murmeltiere.
