Winter hiking and cross-country skiing. Both are good for body and soul. Unwinding is the order of the day - at least if you take it easy. In Zuoz this is very feasible. There is a relaxed, magical winter atmosphere here. But also for ambitious athletes, the location in the wide area of the Plaiv is ideal to get the heart pumping.
13 kilometers from La Punt to Cinuos-chel this winter hiking trail leads you, always along the Inn River, once lengthwise through the Plaiv region. The villages provide the special charm of this winter hike. It is worthwhile to allow enough time and to make one or two stops along the way. From Cinuos-chel the train takes you comfortably back to the starting point - passing by the winter landscape you have just hiked through.
This winter hiking trail, which leads through the village to S-chanf and back on the other side of the valley, is wonderfully suitable as a short walk. The approximately 6 kilometers lead, sometimes with a view, sometimes along the forest, back to the starting point in Zuoz.
It is about half the distance to Madulain.
The Alp Es-cha Dadour is one of the insider tips in the Plaiv region. Why is it so popular? Firstly, fine meals are served on the terrace while you enjoy the sunshine, and secondly, a fun toboggan run down to Madulain awaits on the way back. If you don't have a sled with you, you can rent one at the top of the alp.
Cross-country skiing is always possible - in any weather, at any temperature, from young to old age, classically in the track or in skating stride. This whole-body workout improves coordination skills, strength, and stamina, and in the Engadin, there are a total of over 240 kilometers of cross-country trails available for this purpose. Zuoz with its well-developed cross-country skiing center is the ideal starting point. Here you will find dressing rooms, heated lockers, showers, toilets, and a waxing room. The restaurant Sur En provides the necessary refreshment, and those who need rental equipment or would like to take cross-country skiing lessons will also find a store and a cross-country skiing school here. Then nothing stands in the way of the fun - off you go on the cross-country trail!
