Time to be active

In summer it is simply there: boundless zest for life. Early in the morning, ambling over a mountain meadow still wet with dew, hearing your own step, feeling your own breath. Or standing on a high mountain ridge that you have conquered with your bike, or dipping the paddle into the water of one of the lakes of the Upper Engadine. Summer in the Engadine offers so much. And the best thing is to return to the Cresta Palace Hotel in the evening, after a day full of adventure . To relax in a deckchair in the park or sit on the terrace with a drink in one’s hand and think: this is what I have just experienced – and here, at this moment in time, I feel so completely alive.

Suddenly it is there: this feeling of boundless freedom. Skiing effortlessly through the deep snow, gliding on freshly prepared cross-country tracks into the day or carving the first figures onto the ice. Winter in the Engadine has so much to offer for body and soul. And in the evening you can muse on all these magic moments, relaxing in the Cresta Palace Hotel. After an hour in the spa, after a diner. When the starry sky recaptures the images of sparkling snow and magic moments.  

These unforgettable moments with the family: how proud your child is after the first long mountain hike. How the grandparents’ eyes sparkle. How rested the faces of mother and father look. It is above all the parents who know: the Cresta Palace Hotel makes it easy for families. Easy to be happy.

Enjoy unique nature as a backdrop for your active summer holiday.

Even in summer, Celerina has plenty to offer sports enthusiasts: hiking, biking, golf, tennis, summer skiing, riding, fishing and swimming. Alternatively, take a ride in a Bernina Express viewing carriage and enjoy a glass of red wine as you pass majestic glaciers and enter the Valtellina Valley.
