Tour description

Deeds rather than words: with its Total Energy project, St. Moritz is setting new standards worldwide in terms of protecting the nature and the environment by consistently promoting the production of renewable energy. Energy generated by hydroelectric, solar and biogas sources is used from down in the valley (1,770m/5,807ft) right up to Piz Nair (3,057m/10,026ft). You can witness this effort on the Clean Energy Tour, which takes you past the 180 solar panels operated by the Corviglia and Piz Nair mountain transportation facilities. The tour also encompasses Norman Foster’s Chesa Futura project in the heart of the village, and the natural spring that provides warm water to Badrutt's Palace Hotel. The hike starts with the trip up to Piz Nair, during which the solar panels are clearly visible. At the summit, you can enjoy views of the Engadin lakes from all sides, and also have an opportunity to assess your forthcoming hiking route from above. The first section follows a steep route down Piz Nair to Munt da San Murezzan. A wide, relatively flat path continues to the Alpina hut, and then steeply down to Corviglia. From Corviglia, you take the trail via Sass Runzöl, past the special limestone formations to Alp Nova. Shortly afterwards, you cross under the Corviglia railway line and follow a long bend leading to Chantarella.
