Sightseeing & Tours

Bernina Express

Beautiful Switzerland

Crossing the Alps in the Bernina Express certainly is one of the most spectacular ways to do it. Along the way, the Bernina Express rolls Hollywood-style over the 65-meter-high Landwasser Viaduct, the signature structure of the Rhaetian Railway and the UNESCO World Heritage site. Altogether the train passes through 55 tunnels and over 196 bridges on its way from Chur to Tirano. Travellers are treated to marvellous sights during their journey.

Corvatsch

Altitude 3303 m (10’837ft)

The big cable car is impressive in itself, gliding from Surlej up to the mid-mountain station in just seven minutes. More impressive still is the spectacular mountain panorama that greets you at the end of the next leg of the ride, when you step out of the cabin at the highest summit station in the Eastern Alps at an altitude of 3,303m (10,837ft)

Corviglia

Altitude 3303 m (10’837ft)

The “Black Peak” and its sporty neighbours! Hikers and bikers love the mountains and the energy of alpine nature. There is more than enough of this in the Piz Nair, Corviglia and Marguns region: a view which extends over the Upper Engadine Lake District almost to Maloja on nice days, scenery comprised of green bowls, mountain streams and lakes, and a kaleidoscope of possibilities to wander through the alpine world with hiking shoes or per bike.

Signal

Muottas Muragl

Altitude 2,456 m (8057 ft)

Something for the heart … and for the feet. Not only artists have been inspired since time immemorial by the view from the classic mountain. People like us are also captivated over and over again by the setting. Alone the ascent with the red funicular is a show. For over 100 years it has climbed up the steep slope and is the second oldest mountain railway in the Graubünden region. Some come to enjoy and have a feast, while others want to hike into the panorama, either down to Pontresina or up to the Segantini Hut and Schafberg.

Swiss National Park

Zernetz

The Swiss National Park has some awesome panoramas. Moving only a short distance reveals new mountain tops, and green valleys. Wether you are hiking or mountain biking you’ll find peace and quiet and a vast amount of jaw-dropping trails.

Lake Como (Italy)

Very Romantic

Travel to Lake Como, on board the famed Bernina Express, the highest rail journey in Europe and arguably the most beautiful in the world. Connecting the Italian and Swiss Alps, the Bernina Express crosses suspension bridges over bold gorges: You won’t find better, more flawless views.

Livignio (Italy)

Tax Free Shopping – 50min from St.Moritz

Furthermore, this is a historically duty free area, allowing the shopping addicted to make the most of many great deals! Please note that free imports are limited to certain amounts / values. You need to take your passports with on this trip as you cross the border.

Boat Trip

on Lake Sils

The highest scheduled boat service in Europe operates on Lake Sils. At the helm you find greying captain Franco Giani with the calm composure of an old sea dog. The boat trip from Sils Maria to Maloja takes around 40 minutes. Unfortunately! This is because you can never get enough of the stunning mountain scenery. 

TIME TABLE

Easy Walking

Beautiful outings around St.Moritz for all ages.

Walking

Beautiful Switzerland

You don’t need to be a top athlete to be able to enjoy the great outdoors in the Upper Engadin – quite the opposite. You can explore the picturesque Upper Engadin lake district between Maloja and St. Moritz on a number of short hikes or easy walks. The physical exertion may not take your breath away, but the marvellous Alpine panoramas certainly will.

Lake St.Moritz

Easy Walk – 1 hour or less

A must is to walk around the lake of St.Moritz. This will take you about 1 hour.

Heidi’s Flower Trail

Easy Walk – Take the Signal Bahn – 1hour

Walk, look and marvel: flower lovers will go into raptures along this kilometre-long themed trail from Chantarella to the Heidi hut and down to Salastrains. Some 200 different Alpine plants, many of them protected species, are laid out in beautiful, numbered islands of flowers. A brochure (free from the Tourist Information office) provides all the necessary infomation, and the wonderful scenery, with its forests of Swiss stone pine forests and varied flora, the perfect backdrop. The route is suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.

Panorama Trail

Easy Walk – Muotas Muragl – 2 hours

This excursion combines the pleasures of hiking like no other: the trip up the mountain in the picturesque funicular, the fabulous views, and finally this enchanting panorama trail, which leads through through pine forests and past gnarled roots of stone pines, and constantly accompanied by a view of the magnificent Bernina mountain range. Halfway along the route, just below the trail, you will come across the cosy little Unterer Schafberg restaurant, which is the perfect place for a break. The climb to Alp Languard will leave you a little out of breath – which provides you with a perfect reason to stop off and treat yourself to a tea and never-ending views. And possible also a good excuse to take things easy and hop in the chairlift for descent to Pontresina.

Six Lakes Water Trail

Easy Walk – Furtschellas – 2.5 hours

They sparkle in the Upper Engadin summer sun like shiny sequins on an evening gown: high up on the Furtschellas (2,313m/7,589ft), six small mountain lakes reflect the sky in their crystal-clear waters. The Water Trail follows a 2 1/2 hour circular route past the lakes towards Alp Munt, and then back again along the other side to the summit station. The breathtaking view extends across the lake plateau, deep into the valley and up again on the other side to the rocky flanks of the Corvatsch massif. Numerous vantage points invite hikers to stop and linger. The water hiking trail for young explorers, with a colourful games & activity book, has an exciting tale to tell.

Val Roseg

Pontresina – Val Roseg by Horsecarriage 1h

Just sit back, relax, and let the horses pull you at a leisurely pace to the Hotel Roseg Gletscher at the far end of the idyllic Val Roseg. Of course, you could also make the 7 km (4-mile) journey on foot, but there’s something wonderfully romantic about a horse-drawn carriage ride on a lovely summer’s day. At the Hotel Roseg Gletscher, enjoy a cold Ice-tea – along with the views of the nearby glaciers and the impressive Bernina mountain range.

Thrill & Action

Helicopter Rides

Are you an arenaline seeker?

Take off in a helicopter and enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Engadin. The helicopter will bring you very close to the peaks of the Piz Palü und Piz Bernina – and up into seventh heaven! Or how about a flying in a loop around the mighty Bernina massif or along the spectacular Biancograt ridge? Look down on the sparkling glaciers and the shimmering lakes until the granite rock of the Bergaglia seems almost close enough to touch. The choice of what you want to see is entirely yours.

Mountain Biking

Go with the Flow Trail…

In recent years, Corviglia, St. Moritz’s local mountain, has become a real hot spot on the mountain-biking scene, not least because of its three different flow trails. Their banked curves, bumps and jumps are sure to set the mountain bikers’ pulses racing. And the best thing is that all three trails are family-friendly and suitable for children aged 12 and up. BIKE RENTAL INFO

Kite Surfing

Spectacular fun

The fun begins when, with a board under your feet, you are actually holding a kite into the wind (and yourself upright on the water). The quickest and most effective way of learning the correct technique is by booking a few lessons at the Swiss Kitesurf School in Silvaplana. The school was the first of its kind in the world – after all, this trend sport was invented here at Lake Silvaplana – just 10 minues drive from the hotel.

Paragliding

Fly like a bird

Even more mountain-air, reviving your nose, brain and most important your soul. So enjoy a flight with a hangglider or paraglider piloted by an experienced pilot. No experience or knowledge of flying required, just be able to stand straight up on the start. Flights take place from 10 am. to 4 pm. Meeting every full hour, underneath Corviglia top station every day, weather- and flying conditions permitting.

Downhill Scooters

Fly like a bird

Anyone wishing to explore the Engadin nature at a faster pace will certainly get a thrill out of these huge scooters with mountain bike wheels: they are smooth-running, easy to steer and fast. Not to mention a pretty adventurous and unpaved road of negotiating the trail from the Marguns top station at 2,273m down the mountainside to Celerina. The natural path, part of it quite steep, leads through flower-filled Alpine meadows. When you reach the forest, it is worth putting your foot on the brake and taking a deep breath – the fragrance in the air is so divine that you wish you could put it in a bottle and take it home with you.

River Rafting

Fly like a bird

Family rafting trips a great fun for everyone and the highlight of any child’s holiday here in the Engadin. The Inn river is not only the home of some great white-water but also has a couple of quieter sections that can be enjoyed by family groups with children as young as 8 (minimum height 1.20 cm). The family trips are generally run on the middle scenic section of the Scuol gorge and feature a few small rapids. On these trips its all about having some good fun on and in the river, we have a jumping rock where everyone is invited to get wet and depending on the section we run there are also some spots where you can go for a swim.
