Panorama hiking in Engadine

The glaciers of the Bernina massif shine a bright white and are one of the most beautiful panoramas in the Alps. These panoramas will be the backdrop of your unique hiking tour, which will start in the lovely Val Poschiavo with a walk to the nearby Lago lake and then take you to Piz Bernina, following the call of the mountain! After a short stop at the pass, the trail will take you up to the Diavolezza mountain lodge, where you can enjoy the sunset over the peaks of the Bernina massif. After visiting Munt Pers, home of the beautiful mountain fairy, you will descend into the idyllic Val da Fain. This wonderful hike will end on the shores of Lake Sils but not before you have taken a tour through Val Roseg and a detour to Morteratsch Glacier

  • Day 1

    Individual arrival in Poschiavo

    The Rhaetian Railway takes you down to Val Poschiavo through a route that is full of hairpin bends. 90% of the farms in this valley are certified organic. You can take your time and taste the local specialities.

  • Day 2

    Poschiavo-Bernina Pass approx. 11km 4hrs | +965m -100m

    On the second day, you will take the train up to Cadera, the starting point of your hike to the Bernina Pass. The red trains of the Rhaetian Railway will show you the way up to Alp Grüm. Views of the peaceful Val Poschiavo and the ice masses on Piz Palü accompany you from here to Lake Bianco, where you spend the night on the shores of the lake. Details: approx. 11 km +965 m -100 m, duration: approx. 4 h.

  • Day 3

    Bernina Pass–Diavolezza approx. 12.5km 5hrs | +1245m -530m

    The route on day 3 will first take you leisurely along the lakes of the Bernina Pass and then turn into a steep uphill climb to the turquoise-blue Lej da Diavolezza. You will then go past the mountain lodge up to Munt Pers. Legend has it that there once lived a mountain fairy on Munt Pers, who gave Diavolezza and the nearby valley Morteratsch their name. You will find yourself mesmerised not just by the legend but also by the view of the surrounding peaks and glaciers. After the summit attempt, you will descend almost 3,000 meters and spend the night in the mountain lodge.

  • Day 4

    Diavolezza–Val da Fain–Pontresina approx. 10.5-14km 4.5-5hrs | +855 -875m -610-1125m

    On day 4, the cable car helps you cover some altitude difference and brings you back to the valley. An idyllic path leads you into Val da Fain, where you walk on curvy roads up to Fuorcla Pischa. Countless lakes will accompany you on your descent down to Pontresina. If you want, you can cut the tour short by taking the cable car from Alp Languard.

  • Day 5

    Pontresina-Surlej approx. 14km 5hrs | +1075m -170m

    The gleaming white glaciers in Val Roseg will make your hearts beat faster. The climb to Fuorcla Surlej will also ensure an increase in heart rate. As you reach the top, all the splendour of the Engadine will unfold before your eyes. You will get an unobstructed view of the Sils and Silvaplana lakes and of the proud peaks and glaciers of the Bernina range. From Murtel, you can take the cable car down to your stopover.

  • Day 6

    Surlej–Maloja 15km 4hrs | +210m -1100m

    The cable car takes you back to the clear mountain air. From Murtel, you will follow a mountain trail that gently brings you down to Sils Maria. Connoisseurs can end the tour with a boat trip –the hike that takes you past Grevasalvas, location of the first Heidi film, is also equally enjoyable. Destination of your hike: the Maloja Pass.
