The best way to experience the wonders of nature is, as ever, on foot. The densest network of trails lies in the stretch of valley between St. Moritz and Bever. Here, winter walkers are able to find a variety of fascinating routes, from pushchair-accessible paths to simple forest trails - simply anything your heart desires.
When the Engadine lies under deep snow, an even more intense sense of peace settles over the valley. You will notice this wonderful tranquillity when each step seems to crunch resoundingly under your shoes. Walkers think they’ve been transported to a fairyland on the 150 km of winter-walking trails. This wonderful experience of nature is carefully signposted to make sure no one gets lost – other than in happy contemplation.
Interesting fact: In the Engadine the average winter temperature is around -9°C. Night temperatures can fall slightly below -20°C but due to the dry climate (average of 57% humidity in February) it feels no more than -6° found in other regions with higher humidity levels.
