On a walk with children, the natural world all around becomes a thrilling adventure playground. The footpaths of the Engadin promise delightful excursions for parents and kids alike: choose from a child-friendly network of routes, add some imaginative ideas for games, and every walk becomes pure family fun!
On the extensive Engadin hiking network there are numerous hiking trails that are well developed and not too steep. And it’s as if they’re made for children's legs or even strollers. For example, an easy hike from the Marguns mountain station leads down to Celerina in about 90 minutes. But before you set off, the playground at Marguns must be enjoyed by your offspring because you can't just walk past the giant swing, trampoline, and bouncy castle!
If your children are already a bit more "hiking-experienced" and you can trust them with a few more kilometers, try the wonderful high trail from Alp Languard above Pontresina to Muottas Muragl. The approximately 2-hour hike can become an exciting search game for all ages because, with a little luck and sharp eyes, you can discover some of the cute marmots and the approximately 1800 ibex that call the mountains above Pontresina home.
And anyway, fun for the little ones is never neglected when hiking, because children also like to hike when there is plenty to actively experience. And there is lots to do here - whether it's building cairns, creating reservoirs in the streams, romping around in the forest and watching the birds, squirrels, or even deer, or enjoying a cozy picnic at one of the many grilling sites - nature offers many unique experiences for children of all ages.
