Cross-country Skiing

Silvaplana

The Engadin has a lot to offer with over 240 kilometers of cross-country trails. The highlight as a whole is definitely the cross-country trail of the Engadin Skimarathon. Where else can you ski over frozen lakes, wide open spaces, up rigorous climbs, through an entire valley, from one end to the other?

42 wonderful kilometers to train for. Whether to be ready for the Engadin Skimarathon or simply to stay fit. Either way - there is hardly a better whole-body workout than cross-country skiing, and in Silvaplana it is especially enjoyable.

Circular tail Silvaplana - Surlej

The cross-country trails across the lakes are usually not ready until January. However, cross-country skiing in the Engadin is possible as early as the end of November. In Silvaplana, the 3-kilometer-long Silvaplana-Surlej circular trail attracts the first cross-country skiers. The Crap da Sass castle and the view of Lake Silvaplana and the Corvatsch mountain are the main scenic features of the circular trail.

Palüd lungia

If you want to go steep, you can tackle the trail from Surlej over the Palüd Lungia to St. Moritz. It is physically demanding - but as is often the case, it is the greatest efforts that are responsible for the release of numerous endorphins in the end. The 5.8-kilometer trail takes you into a fairytale forest, past the Lej zuppo, and on to St. Moritz Bad. Shortly before the finish, downhill skills are called for - after all, if it's a steep climb, it has to come back down again at some point.
