You climb the old mule track of the "Strada Antronesca" to the Saaspass. In the past, this route was the connection between Villadossola and Saas Almagell. On the pass, where you can still find the remains of an old retreat, there is a panoramic view over the 4000 m of the Saas Valley. The route then leads down into the valley to Furggstalden, a little above Saas Almagell. Furggstalden can also be reached from the pass via a new panoramic route that leads to a chair lift (Heidbodme) that goes down to the village. From Furggstalden you can reach the stage destination Almagelleralp via a secured path.
