Running along well-kept forest paths, on rough gravel, across wild meadow trails, or zigzagging past rocks - trail runners love natural terrain. Lucky for them, the Engadin has plenty to suit all tastes.
What could be better than challenging yourself while enjoying the great outdoors and experiencing the magnificent Engadin mountains in all their splendor? If you are looking for a special kind of nature experience and want to really push yourself, trail running in the Engadin is for you!
Countless trails of all levels of difficulty lead through thick forests, across open mountain slopes, and into secluded side valleys, promising action and excitement for runners of all tastes and levels of ability. The Engadin mountains have trails to suit everyone, from beginner to expert.
Flat trails lead through idyllic larch forests, for example, while the picturesque Val Roseg offers runs with gentle climbs. More challenging, however, are the routes with racy climbs and narrow switchbacks, such as the trail from the Diavolezza valley station to Alp Languard. The Diavolezza region also offers a trail of considerable challenge for top-class runners: the scree-covered slopes demand a sure foot and confidence in the face of steep gradients. But the view of the impressive glacier cluster on the Bernina massif with the mighty Morteratsch Glacier is the best kind of natural high on offer, banishing fatigue and exhaustion in no time!
A very special multi-day trip is organised by Eurotrek for experienced and ambitious trail runners. The route from the Bernina Pass to the Maloja Pass leads via Diavolezza, through the valleys of Val da Fain and Val Roseg, and along the lakes of Silvaplana and Sils: a spectacular alpine trail guaranteed to thrill.
