Strolls along sparkling white trails

Winter walking & snowshoeing
Winter hiking on the frozen lakes

Winter walkers feel like royalty here: throughout the region, we roll out the red – or rather, white – carpet for them. The wide, specially prepared snow trails lead along idyllic valleys, across frozen lakes and throughout our winter wonderland, from Maloja to Zernez: a delight to explore.

The dreamy Val Roseg

It is so peaceful here that wild animals peep out of the forest to watch as you stroll up the picturesque valley… welcome to the Val Roseg near Pontresina! And it is so magical you feel you are in a trance – until awoken by the aroma of regional delicacies as you approach the Restaurant Roseg Gletscher. Here, you will also find horse-drawn sleighs ready to take you either deeper into the enchanting valley or back to Pontresina (2 hours’ walk each way).

Between St. Moritz and Bever

Walks in the region between St. Moritz and Bever reveal different worlds and magical contrasts. A stroll across frozen Lake St. Moritz, for example (45 min.) is an enjoyably cosmopolitan experience, while the Val Bever promises a taste of pure tranquillity. This wonderfully secluded side valley offers a delightful walk along the Beverin river, across meadows blanketed in snow and through sparkling forests (about 90 minutes each way from Bever). Here, far from the ski areas, you will encounter pure calm and, with a little luck, wild deer – along with a real gem of a restaurant. In addition to serving regional delicacies, the Gasthaus Spinas also features a 100-year-old novelty: an original French bowling alley.

Between La Punt and S-chanf

The traditional Engadin villages of La Punt, Zuoz and S-chanf, with their narrow alleys and magnificent facades, are full of historical charm. Every winter walk between these delightful communities is a magical experience. From S-chanf, it is well worth tackling the glorious walk into the idyllic Val Trupchun, as far as the border of the Swiss National Park (2 hours each way).

Growing in the Arpiglia region opposite Zuoz are majestic ancient stands of Swiss pine and larch shaped by wind and weather. Visible in the background here is Piz Griatschouls (2,972 m), which is located in S-chanf territory.

Walking in the “parish”

Picking the finest of all is a tricky business: after all, beauty is subjective. So it is all the more remarkable that enthusiasts agree unanimously that the winter walking trail of La Plaiv (Romansh for “parish”) is one of the most beautiful in the Engadin. Without doubt: on every step of the trail from La Punt along the river Inn to Cinuos-chel, you feel like singing for joy! (3 hours)

Walks across frozen lakes

The classic winter walk in the region leads all the way across the magnificent lake-strewn plateau between Maloja and St. Moritz, over snow-covered meadows and frozen lakes. The full walk takes about 6½ hours, but you can tackle it in stages (Maloja-Sils-Silvaplana-St. Moritz) with the help of local bus services. Not to be missed!
