Winter in La Punt Chamues-ch offers a little bit of everything; variety in unparalleled nature, tranquility for those seeking peace and quiet, and numerous activities for every taste. We have put together eight highlights for an unforgettable winter in La Punt Chamues-ch.
Through snow-covered forests or along the Inn River, those who stay in La Punt Chamues-ch will quickly fall in love with the alluvial landscape that stretches along the Inn. Then, when the temperatures are low, the nights clear, and the humidity of the river covers the branches of the deciduous trees with snow crystals, you can't help but wander along here. There is also God Fainchs, where you can combine the walk with a visit to the forest gallery. Peace and quiet is guaranteed here, and if you are lucky, you will spot deer, some of which make this their winter home.
Cross-country skiing in the Plaiv region means variety for you and your four-legged friend. Yes, you read correctly, because here you will find, among other things, three of the total of four dog trails that the Engadin offers. The network of cross-country ski trails in the Upper Engadin is the largest in Switzerland with more than 240 kilometers, and around La Punt you can train wonderfully. For example, you can tackle the cross-country ski trail to S-chanf. It is considered a tough challenge, especially on marathon Sunday, because the "Golan Heights" demand everything from the participants once again. So it’s a good idea to practice running in different topography, and La Punt is the ideal starting point for this - no matter in which direction you go from here.
Popular with motorists and bikers in summer for its picturesque route as a special driving experience, the Albula Pass is transformed into a unique toboggan run in winter.

The natural ice rink in La Punt attracts young and old. From December to February it is available free of charge to all those who enjoy skating on two blades. If curling is one of your hobbies or you would like to try it out - go ahead! The next stone is only a reservation away.
With its platter lift and two short runs, as well as a magic carpet with an easy practice slope, the Müsella ski area is the ideal place for skiing beginners. The magic carpet can be used free of charge, and if little skiers need professional help, the ski school can be easily booked on site. For fun without skis or just in between, there is a sledding hill and children's playground. The skiing area with restaurant Müsella is a true paradise for our little holiday guests.
If you can hike, you can also run. Which brings us to winter trail running, which is also possible on the daily prepared winter hiking trails around La Punt Chamues-ch. With the right equipment, there is no end to the season for trail runners here.
Happiness on earth lies on the backs of horses, they say. The Engadin River Ranch brings you these feelings of happiness. It offers western-style horseback rides for beginners as well as advanced riders. In summer, autumn and winter, short rides, day tours or multi-day tours lead you high on horseback through the Engadine mountains. For those who prefer to travel by carriage - the ranch also offers this. The horseback riding and yoga retreats are also particularly popular.
An experience for all senses offers the forest gallery in the beautiful pine-larch forest God Fainchs above Chamues-ch.
On the tour with ten stations, not only the fairy-tale surroundings come to light, the exhibition also offers the opportunity to listen to the meditative silence and to perceive the scent and power of the forest.
