Themed trails

Themed trails are a practical way to get to know better your "holiday home" and explore its character. If this can be combined with heavenly trails soothing your soul, even better. Stories, customs and the regional way of life are mentioned on the Engadine theme trails just as there are explanations of flora and fauna and the use of renewable energy. Many nature trails are created in a playful way which makes them perfect to use with children as well.

Water makes happy

hiking along the lakes

When it comes to hiking along the lakes in the Engadine, the high plateau between Maloja and St. Moritz is THE choice. You will find lakes born as postcard pictures. A content stroll or hike to the four amazing valley lakes and some small forest, mountain or moor lakes are our special recommendation for an active  day of holiday during the warm season.

Tips for hikes around the lakes:

  • Go around the High Engadine lakes
  • Water trail to the six Lejins (circular walk)
  • Bernina Pass: from lake to lake into the Puschlav or Lej Minor (circular walk)
