There, where all sorts of smugglers and packers used to roam in the past, there are still paths that can be walked on today. In a varied circular hike, the Smugglerpfad leads over the St. Antönier Joch (2,379 m) past the Gafiersee (2,290 m) to the Gafierjoch (2,415 m). On the four-and-a-half-hour circular hike through the border area between Austria and Switzerland, there is plenty to discover - including shy mountain dwellers such as marmots, chamois and ibex.
