Useful tips about swimming in open waters

Our mountain lakes and waters are wonderful – so stay safe and enjoy them!

Here are some useful tips to help you avoid getting into difficult situations:

  • Do not leave your children unsupervised at any time.
  • Do not enter the water with a full stomach or on a completely empty stomach.
  • Your body needs time to adjust, so never jump into the water if you’re overheated. Keep in mind that rivers take longer than lakes to warm up.
  • Take care when jumping into rivers or lakes. You could injure yourself otherwise.
  • When swimming, keep a lookout for flotsam and/or any obstacles beneath the surface like bulky objects.
  • Never undertake to swim alone over long distances.
  • Lilos and swimming aids are no guarantee of personal safety.
  • The open waters of the Engadin are unsupervised. Apply extra caution!
