Tour description

This hike takes you up to Muottas da Schlarigna (2,305m/7,562ft). From Pontresina railway station, the route briefly runs in the direction of the Val Roseg, then takes a right turn through a residential area. Following the signposts, cross the edge of the forest to the Muottas da Schlarigna viewpoint, which is a lovely place to linger a while and take in the breathtaking, almost 360°view of the valleys and mountains. You will have already traversed various areas of primeval woodland on the way up to the vantage point. If you want to see the oldest Swiss stone pine, which is over 1,400 years old, on the way down take the path towards Alp Staz. The gnarled pine is on the right of the trail, shortly after the intersection. From Alp Staz, a wide Alpine trail leads down to the idyllic Lake Staz. If you prefer to spend more time hiking up on high, do not branch off to the ancient pine, but follow the high route past old stone pines, Alpine roses and alders, from where you can occasionally snatch a glance at Lake St. Moritz, St. Moritz and Corviglia. Eventually you reach St. Moritz and then make your way along the valley floor back to Lake Staz. On sunny days, the lake is warm enough for bathing. The lakeside is dotted with places where you can relax and enjoy an afternoon snooze or rustle up a barbecue. The route resumes behind the Restaurant Lake Staz and returns through the forest to Pontresina.
