Winter hiking

Strolling through winter wonderland

On a stroll across the frozen Engadin lakes, you really appreciate the great expanse of the high valley and especially at sunset, the magical quality of light in the Engadin. The flat winter walking paths from Maloja to Silvaplana and on to St. Moritz are perfect for families - depending on snow conditions, with pushchairs, too. For a particularly picturesque winter walk, follow the path from Sils into the romantic Val Fex, or from Maloja through the snow-blanketed forest to the frozen Lake Cavloccio. A special highlight - full moon tour on Muottas Muragl.
