Tour description

This run is also suitable for beginners. The cross-country track is initially slightly uphill until you have left the village of Pontresina behind. After that there are no more climbs on the way to the Hotel Restaurant Morteratsch. Once you get there it is well worth taking the detour to the Restaurant's sunny terrace to enjoy the wonderful mountain panorama of the Bernina group of mountains.

Option B: The Morteratsch Glacier cross-country track takes you even closer to the glacial tongues. (distance: 5.4 km / climb: 107 m of altitude difference / technical difficulty: difficult)


Technical difficulty: easy
Technique: skating and classic
Downhill run: 15 m of altitude difference
