Tour description

The Via Engiadina follows a route not far above the floor of the Upper Engadin valley. The varied hike takes you through Swiss stone pine and larch forests, across little, crystal-clear mountain streams and Alpine meadows, and past idyllic mountain huts and traditional Engadin villages, accompanied all the while by a breathtaking view of the unrivalled Upper Engadin scenery and the glistening glaciers.

Stage 2: Silvaplana - Samedan
Once you have crossed the Julier Pass road, you will soon be rewarded with a superb view across the expanse of the Upper Engadin, with St. Moritz in the foreground. The route passes the El Paradiso mountain restaurant and up to the Corviglia. After a short, steep climb, you soon reach the deep blue Lej Alv, where the trail descends once more to Marguns. The Via Engadina then continues via the Munt da la Bês-cha high-altitude trail along the Piz Padella. Tradition is actively cultivated in Alp Muntatsch. After a rest stop amidst the wonderful Alpine scenery, you can tackle the descent to the picturesque village of Samedan with renewed vigour.
