Are you apprehensive about winter hiking with a stroller? Worried it will be awkward or difficult or even boring because of the simple route?
We think it can be done differently and have put together a variety of hiking suggestions for families that are easily manageable with a stroller.
The Lake Trail from Maloja to St. Moritz or vice versa is an absolute highlight in the Engadin. Imagine - you're walking across one frozen lake to the next. Isn't that fascinating? After the lakes freeze, a layer of snow covers the ice and soon cross-country skiers, winter hikers, and snowkiters are moving on it with ease. If you didn't know it, you wouldn't guess that there are lakes underneath the large white surfaces. You usually do have to wait until about the end of December/beginning of January for this to happen. But then nothing will stand in the way of 17 kilometers of sporting pleasure, even with a stroller.
Not only the frozen lakes but also the Inn River exudes a special charm in winter. When the nights are freezing cold and the temperatures do not climb above zero even during the day, nowhere is it as beautiful as in the region between Celerina and Zuoz. The branches of the now bare deciduous trees are decorated all over with snow crystals which sparkle if the sun then adds its magic … and it is precisely in these surroundings that a winter hiking trail of about 3.5 kilometers leads from Madulain to Zuoz. And you can push the stroller along in a relaxed fashion.
This is a pleasure for young and old. During a winter hike in the fabulous Val Roseg you will meet trusting birds again and again that eat right out of your hand. The feeling when they land with their tiny feet on your hand is incomparable, and it is addictive to watch these little creatures up close. So the 7 kilometer hike becomes a nice walk. And when you arrive at the restaurant, the dessert buffet is waiting. For an even more relaxed return, take a horse-drawn carriage.
