There are many paths that lead to mountain biking happiness. And choosing the best can be a tricky task since all tours in the Engadin are among the most beautiful in all of Switzerland. Nevertheless, we have some suggestions that can help you make the right choice for you so here we present the "Top 6."
From the Bernina Pass to Celerina and up with the gondola to the Piz Nair and over beautiful trails down to Lake Silvaplana. The tour combines some of the most famous trails of the Engadin in one day!
Demanding tour with pushing and carrying passages, but with a descent off the mainstream.
The tour begins on the panoramic mountain Piz Nair, which is easily reached by mountain railway (including bike transport) from St. Moritz or Celerina. First down a section on the ski slope, then turn right to Fuorcla Schlattain and now out of the valley to Lej Alv, where the 300-metre-long ascent begins.
The local mountain bike route Bernina Express has taken its name from the legendary train of the Rhaetian Railway that travels over the Bernina Pass, and is as varied as it is inspiring. The return journey from Poschiavo by train is part of this tour, which connects the high Engadin valley with the southern Valposchiavo.
This 34 km long dream tour starts at the train station in Celerina and begins with a quite relaxed 400 meters altitude difference to Alp Laret. But then it gets intense; the climbs to the Glüna hut, past the Lej Alv, and finally up to a proud 2400 m above sea level will make you sweat profusely.
On this round tour you experience the landscape of Engadin St.Moritz from its most beautiful side. The tour offers intermediate entries with 3 different cable cars, Marguns, Corviglia and Signal and can therefore be easily done in several daily stages.
"Brevity is the spice of life" - a saying that not only hits the mark in many situations in life, but could also be chosen as the subtitle for this new route. consisting of only 8.6 kilometers, the Albula Trail combines a little taste of everything you want for a perfect mountain bike tour! A spectacular alpine panorama serves as your backdrop, and 625 meters of depth guarantee you an unforgettable flowing trail surfing experience with a varied route.
