Hiking & Mountaineering

Hiking

It has a very special appeal to explore the Engadine on foot. The multifaceted nature of the unique Grisons mountain landscape can be closely explored during hiking trips. More than 580 kilometres of well sign-posted and marked (in accordance with BAW provisions) Grisons hiking trails lead through a landscape shaped by contrasts: across lush green alpine meadows, slopes, past rugged hillsides, through shady coniferous forests, to snow-covered summits, along glistening lakes and to centuries-old glaciers.
Whether with family or friends, on one of the exciting themed trails or a multi-day trekking tour – the selection of possibilities is amazing. With different mountain railways, you reach areas like Corviglia/Piz Nair, Corvatsch/Furtschellas, Diavolezza and Muottas Muragl/Alp Languard, where marvellous mountain hiking trails give you the feeling of walking right through a panorama postcard.

Winter Hiking

Not only in summer but also during the cold season, hiking enthusiasts can enjoy the Engadine on foot with 150 km of winter hiking trails. Apart from flat routes from St. Moritz via Silvaplana to Maloja, which are also suitable for buggies under appropriate snow conditions, there are also the romantic side valleys, just like Val Fex near Sils, offering relaxed hiking trails.
One can saunter in winter where sailing trips take place in summer. One experiences the width of the valley on the frozen Engadine lakes in a completely different, but impressive way. It is one of the highlights of any winter adventure in the Engadine to watch the sunset during a walk across the frozen Lake Sils.

All those wanting to enjoy the view from high above to the snow-covered valley can do this on the philosopher way on Muottas Muragl which will also reveal exciting knowledge on proverbs of important philosophers.
It’s amazing to leave your tracks in the deeply snow-covered landscape on snowshoes. Various routes are, and guided snowshoe tours with professional guides are, for example, offered by the mountain climber school Pontresina. Connoisseurs and romantics will get their money’s worth with a full moon route in combination with a fondue chat in a mountain cabin.

Moutaineering, Climbing & Bouldering

All those with high aspirations are at the right place in the Engadine. Numerous three-thousanders offer an exciting and diverse choice of routes for summiteers. However, even inexperienced mountaineering enthusiasts can master here safely different ascents and defeat their first summit. The offers range from hiking trails via alpine routes to high altitude tours past crevasses in the Bernina area – there is something for each level.
However, with trails in breathtaking heights, one shouldn’t carry the head in the clouds, because good preparation is key for success. Professional mountain guides support your plan and will guide you safely to the highest summits, the cosiest mountain cabins with regional cuisine and back down to the valley.

Via Ferratas, climbing gardens and cliffs in the midst of free, untouched nature accelerate the hearts of climbing enthusiasts. Whether it is free climbing in the rocks, climbing one of the Via Ferratas with different degrees of difficulty, like La Resgia or Piz Trovat I and II, or in the climbing garden – an exciting climbing adventure for each level is guaranteed and rewarded with a marvellous panorama view of the Engadine mountain landscape. The climbing and Bouldering hall in S-Chanf is perfect as an alternative on bad weather days, or a place for learning and/or improving the basics of the climbing. The mountaineering school in Pontresina does not only offer guided tours with a professional guide but gives beginners the opportunity to learn the correct techniques with proper instructions in a course.
