Hiking: Bernina Tour
- 7 Days / 6 Nights
- Self-guided tour
Arrival to Poschiavo
The Rhaetian Railway takes you down to Val Poschiavo through a route that is full of hairpin bends. 90% of the farms in this valley are certified organic. You can take your time and taste the local specialities.
Poschiavo – Bernina Pass
On the second day, you will take the train up to Cadera, the starting point of your hike to the Bernina Pass. The red trains of the Rhaetian Railway will show you the way up to Alp Grüm. Views of the peaceful Val Poschiavo and the ice masses on Piz Palü accompany you from here to Lake Bianco, where you spend the night on the shores of the lake.
The route on day 3 will first take you leisurely along the lakes of the Bernina Pass and then turn into a steep uphill climb to the turquoise-blue Lej da Diavolezza. You will then go past the mountain lodge up to Munt Pers. An old legend says that there once lived a mountain fairy on Munt Pers, who gave Diavolezza and the nearby valley Morteratsch their name.
You will find yourself mesmerised not just by the legend but also by the view of the surrounding peaks and glaciers. After the summit attempt, you will descend to 3,000 meters and spend the night in the mountain lodge.
Diavolezza – Pontresina
The cable car helps you to cover some altitude differences and brings you back to the valley. An idyllic path leads you into Val da Fain, where you walk on curvy roads up to Fuorcla Pischa. Countless lakes will accompany you on your descent down to Pontresina. If you want, you can cut the tour short by taking the cable car from Alp Languard.
Pontresina – Surlej
The gleaming white glaciers in Val Roseg will make your hearts beat faster. The climb to Fuorcla Surlej will also ensure an increase in heart rate. As you reach the top, all the splendour of the Engadine will unfold before your eyes. You will get an unobstructed view of the Sils and Silvaplana lakes and of the proud peaks and glaciers of the Bernina range. From Murtel, you can take the cable car down to your stopover.
Surlej – Maloja
The cable car takes you back to the clear mountain air. From Murtel, you will follow a mountain trail that gently brings you down to Sils Maria. Connoisseurs can end the tour with a boat trip – the hike that takes you past Grevasalvas, location of the first Heidi film, is also equally enjoyable. Destination of your hike: the Maloja Pass.
Departure or extension
This tour takes you to high altitudes. Even if you always have the option of shorter, easier routes, basic fitness and surefootedness are a prerequisite for the climbs that can be steep in part.
