The Bernina region between Morteratsch and Cavaglia has always impressed visitors with its breathtaking beauty. Everything revolves around eternal ice, which is on full display from the Diavolezza mountain railway station on the Bernina massif. The Morteratsch glacier is easily accessible via a themed trail and the glacial mills at Cavaglia are also definitely worth a visit. The two summits can be easily reached on the spectacular UNESCO World Heritage-listed Bernina line of the Rhätischen Railway.
Canyoning refers to travelling along a waterway from top to bottom through a canyon or gorge. You wade, swim, abseil, jump into the water and slide – as if you were on a water slide – while making plenty of stops to marvel at the towering canyon walls and crystal clear water. Qualified mountain guides who have undertaken specialised canyoning training look forward to introducing you to this unique sport. Tours are held from June until October.
Ice skating & ice hockey
Eisarena Ludains in St. Moritz Bad is an artificially refrigerated ice skating rink where visitors can play ice hockey and skate in the open air from mid-July until mid-April.
As the professional paragliding guide calmly prepares everything for the flight, your adrenaline will already be pumping. Then before you know it, you’ll be floating high above the Engadin lake district. Prerequisites for a tandem flight include a normal physical constitution and a body weight of between 30 and 110 kg. Depending on the weather and time of year, you can start your flight from Muottas Muragl, Alp Languard, Diavolezza, Corvatsch or a starting point in one of the neighbouring valleys.
Scenic helicopter flights
Climb to new heights and witness Engadin’s beauty from a bird’s eye perspective. Around the Bernina massif, right up next to the Biancograt, over the mighty glaciers, all along the lake district, close to the contours of Bergeller granite and then safely back down to earth. See all that and more on a scenic helicopter flight. You can even choose your own route.
Engadin St. Moritz has some great locations for inline skating, such as the tracks at Engadin Airport and between La Punt and S-chanf (8.6 km). Both are easy and suitable for speed skaters, recreational skaters and families alike.
Horse-drawn carriage rides

Clay pigeon shooting

The Wurftauben Club St. Moritz shooting school is open from June until August. PLEASE NOTE: The facility will be closed in 2015 due to construction work on the new ski jump.
