Watersports in Engadin

All thanks to the Maloja wind

Steady and reliable, the Maloja wind makes the Engadin a paradise for windsurfing and sailing. The wind always rises around midday – at least on sunny days, and as everyone knows, the sun shines a lot in the Engadin. In the mornings, the lakes are still, promising delightful outings with enchanting views to stand up paddlers.

Enjoy water sports 1,800 metres above sea level

Ever since the first humans harnessed the power of the wind over the water with sheets of cloth about 7,000 years ago, sailing has opened up new worlds. In the breathtaking scenery of the Alps, this experience is a real revelation! The lakes of the Engadin provide the magnificent setting for a whole world of water sports – from kitesurfing and windsurfing to SUP and sailing regattas.

When the legendary Maloja Wind gives its all...

If you are hearing the larches rustling and seeing the fishers on the lake straining to row against the wind, then this might be one of those days.
