Excellent outings in upper Engadin

Excellent outings

This holiday region will inspire you with its variety and contrasts. Outings by train, coach, on horseback, by helicopter, boat and car offer unforgettable holidays for every budget.

The fairytale trail to Spinas begins right outside Bever. It has achieved cult status, and leads you past six different locations upriver. At the end of the valley, the Spinas guest house serves specialities from the Engadin. And you can hire a coach and horses for the way back.

When it comes to exploring the dreamy side valleys, we recommend a romantic coach ride. Whether by day or in the evening, you can enjoy the beauty of the landscape. Once you arrive at your destination, you can dine in style before being taken back the hotel. Coach rides: to Val Roseg, Val Flex and Val Bever.

They are friendly, even-tempered and sure-footed: the horses of the Engadin River Ranch (an organic farm where heifers are bred) are calmness personified, which makes them perfect for relaxing outings into the majestic mountain landscape. Even beginners are welcome.

With an outing by car, post bus or train, you can enrich your stay with trips to Puschlav (the Cavaglia potholes, the historic centre of Poschiavo, Tirano with the Palazzo Salis) or the Lower Engadin and its beautiful, unspoilt villages such as Guarda, Ardez and Sent. Müstair and its famous abbey, a UNESCO World Heritage site, can be reached via the Fuorn Pass. Do you know Val Bregaglia? You probably know its most famous son: Alberto Giacometti. His sculptures sell for astronomical sums on the art market. Val Bregaglia is a short, steep and deep valley in the southern Alps. Several mountains over 3,000 metres in height rise up on both sides of the valley. The difference in altitude across just 30 kilometres is almost 1,500 metres, with the upper part lying within the canton of Graubünden.

Europe's highest-lying passenger ship crosses Lake Sils: it docks at Plaun da Lej and Maloja, and passes by historic locations such as the Chastè peninsula. The comfortable round trip on this ship lasts approximately 40 minutes.
