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.
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.
In the Engadin, no accommodation is far from the next lake, as our hotel and holiday home search option shows. Numerous sports shops provide suitable equipment, while our water sports schools will give you the necessary skills. And the Maloja wind? There’s plenty for everyone – and it’s free of charge!
