Winter walking in the Upper Engadin

Winter walking in the Upper Engadin

Apart from the crunching of snow beneath your boots, you hear - nothing! The Upper Engadin offers countless walking opportunities with varying degrees of difficulty. The frozen Engadin lakes invite you to walk on them. Level winter walking trails through the high valley lead from Maloja to Silvaplana and St. Moritz. They are ideal for families. Do you love picturesque winter walks? From Sils into the Fextal valley or from Maloja through the snow-covered forest to the Cavloccio See lake, you will get your money's worth here.

Winter walking on the lakes

On the broad, frozen lakes, you will discover the Upper Engadin from a different perspective. The level walking trails on the lakes are ideal for families with pushchairs. One of the most popular walks leads from the Chastè peninsula on the Silsersee lake into the sun and towards Maloja. An insider's tip: in the evening light of the setting sun, your walk across the lakes will become an unforgettable experience.

Winter walking in the mountains

The winter walking trails "with a view" offer you unforgettable panoramas. On the Philosophen Weg (Philosopher's Trail) on the Muottas Muragl, you can let your thoughts fly free. The trail on the Corviglia tempts the gourmets. And the highest trail? From the Berghaus Diavolezza restaurant and hotel past the Piz Trovat mountain to the mountain station of the Gletschersessellift (glacier chairlift). After a good half hour, the view will take your breath away: the panorama extends deep into the eastern Austrian Alps, to the Piz Kesch and Piz Linard, and the Italian peaks, including the Ortler mountain. On the return leg, the Piz Palü and Piz Bernina mountains reveal their beauty. The trail is only groomed with shovels, meaning that good mountain shoes are essential.

Winter walking in the side valleys

You can enjoy peace and quality time together in one of the idyllically situated side valleys – on a walk through the beautiful Val Bever valley, for example. The peace is a great experience: from Bever railway station along the Beverin stream to Spinas across snowy levels and through enchanted forests. In Spinas, the smart mountain guesthouse awaits you with local delicacies and genuine hospitality. Another popular side valley is the car-free Val Roseg and its majestic backdrop, or Val Fex, one of the most unspoilt valleys of the Upper Engadin.
