The Glacier Experience Trail

Bernina Glaciers - the grisons glacier experience

The Glacier Experience Trail

The glacier experience trail on the Diavolezza
Visitors on this high-alpine trail get close up to the glacier: both spatially – the trail leads you to the lateral moraine of the Pers Glacier – and mentally, as you can learn a lot about the Bernina Glaciers mountain world along the way.

The experience trail starts and ends at the Diavolezza mountain station (2,978 m). The mountain hiking trail meanders back down towards the Pers Glacier, continues along part of its lateral moraine and then goes back up to Diavolezza.

Five stations address the changes to the largest Grisons glaciers and the visible changes in the sensitive alpine room. The explanations are summarised in a booklet that is available from the valley and mountain stations. The “Glacier Experience Trail” is the practical supplement to the “VR Glacier Experience” in the visitor centre at the Diavolezza valley station.

Good to know:

  • The highlight is the proud Piz Palü (3,900 m) that is always in sight – one of the most beautiful snow and ice mountains in the world.
  • Wear robust shoes! A visit to the “VR Glacier Experience” at the Diavolezza valley station makes the experience more purposeful and intense.
  • Can be reached from the Bernina Diavolezza RhB station; a conveyor goes from the valley station to the cable car.
