From A to Z

Bernina glaciers

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.

Tandem paragliding

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. Depending on the weather and time of year, you can start your flight from Muottas Muragl, 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.
