When an Advent window is unveiled every day in December, when the traditional Schlitteda takes place at the end of January/beginning of February, and when thousands of marathon runners pass Bever in March, these are just a few highlights that are associated with winter in Bever. But the real highlights are exploring the winding village streets, the wild and romantic Val Bever, and everything else the Engadin has to offer with Bever as a starting point.
The cross-country trail to Val Bever is without a doubt one of the top picks for cross-country skiing in the Engadin. It is considered to be moderately difficult and leads into a snow-covered fairytale world along the Beverin stream to the finish in Spinas. Immersed in the beauty of the surroundings and in harmony with nature, the gentle incline spread over 4 km is barely noticeable at all. Before returning, the Spinas Inn will tempt you with hearty Engadin specialties and homemade cakes.
Parallel to the cross-country skiing trail runs the winter hiking trail into Val Bever. We recommend taking the path on the left side of the valley, which leads through a snow-covered forest to Spinas. And it doesn't always have to be Val Bever - the winter hiking trails from Bever in the direction of Samedan or in the other direction to La Punt run mostly flat and along the Inn, which gives them a special feature on cold winter days: the deciduous trees turn into works of art when they are covered in ice crystals.
So what are you waiting for? Put on your winter boots and go! In any case, there is no shortage of winter hiking kilometers to be covered in the Engadin.
The Crasta Mora toboggan run above Bever can be reached by a 20-minute walk. So if you can't get enough of the sledding fun - walking for 20 minutes a few times is absolutely justifiable, isn't it? If you like it fast-paced, head to the nearby toboggan run on Muottas Muragl, which provides adrenaline but is not for beginners or small children.
If you prefer to be upright on two blades, you can have fun on the natural ice rink in Bever.
Who will succeed in hitting all nine with one ball and thus bowl "es Babeli"? A 100-year-old bowling alley with original wooden balls awaits you at the Spinas Inn. In addition to the game, the culinary delights are not neglected - the cheese fondue tastes even better in this historic ambience. If you don't want to spend the night at the inn, it's best to take a carriage back to Bever and enjoy a few romantic moments to end your trip.
