Running & Trail running

Running and mountain-running around St. Moritz

Running is an ideal past-time for many to clear one's head and do something good for body and soul. It has become more and more popular in the last few years to treat oneself with an extra kick by not just running on asphalt but to enjoy the sport off-road. In the Swiss Engadine you do not have to miss your trail-running meters. Away from the trodden paths you can run on comfortably soft forest trails, on gravel, meadows and sometimes bedrock in front of the scenic Bernina-Massif into your  holiday happiness.
