The choice of hiking routes in the Engadin / St. Moritz holiday and hiking paradise is almost unlimited. In and around St. Moritz, comfortable aerial cableways, including the Piz Nair, Corvatsch and Diavolezza, access three 3'000-metre peaks and many other famous vantage peaks such as the Corviglia, Signal and Muottas Muragl.
Famous vantage peaks such as Corviglia, Signal and Muottas Muragl are starting points for numerous panoramic hikes that are unique in splendour and density, with many cosy mountain restaurants offering the chance to take a break and savour delicious regional specialities. In addition to almost unlimited independent hiking, St. Moritz and its neighbouring resorts offer guided excursions on special themes such as geology and botany as well as glacier and mountain tours.
The statistics speak volumes: on 320 days a year the sun travels across the Upper Engadin, transforming the lakeland plateau, side valleys and mountain slopes into a poetic interplay of light and shade. The region’s 580 kilometres of hiking trails offer an invitation to stroll, walk, hike and tour. And whatever your taste, you’ll find a path to pleasure. Muottas Muragl, a favourite mountain for hikers, is particularly rich in views and you’ll truly feel on top of the world along the sporty trails. An easy stroll along a level path is also idyllic, for example in the pleasant shade of the Stazerwald forest – followed by a dip in the lake.
