This resort area is one of the most beautiful and frequently visited areas in Switzerland. Below is a list of trip options:
Pontresina – We will travel by horse-drawn coach along the Roseg Valley to view the stunning Rotarsch Glacier. We will visit the impressive tributary of the Rhine River dubbed the “Swiss Grand Canyon” – a must-see for nature lovers. From there we will tour magnificent St. Moritz
We will board the famous Bernina Express at the Pontresina station and embark on one of the most stunning routes in the Swiss mountains. The train will climb to the foot of the Diovolezza glacier, where we will take a chairlift to the peak of the glacier at 3000 meters. Wow… we will return to the bus an, on our way to Italy, we’ll see beautiful lakes leading to the Livigno Valley. We will stop at the famous duty-free town and browse in the lovely duty-free shops, enjoying every moment.
A short ride will bring us to the pretty village of Silvaplana, right near St. Moritz. We will take 2 chairlifts to the perpetually snow-capped peak of the Corvatsch. A short walk will enable us to observe the mountain peaks surrounding us on all sides. We will descend the mountain and continue on to the old train station at Muottas Muragl to observe the Engadin valley and the region’s lakes. Beautiful!
We will visit Chur, the ancient capital of the Graubundin (Grisons) canton. We will traverse the Julier mountain pass in the direction of the Hinterrhein (a tributary of the Rhine River). About 5 kilometers from Chur, we will descend 321 steps to the Viamala Gorge. The narrow raging river all the way at the bottom and the strip of blue sky way above it make for a powerfully beautiful scene. From there, we will continue to Churwalden and ride the longest and most impressive toboggan run in all of Switzerland. Thereafter, we will descend on Chur’s beautiful stores. If time allows, we will stop at neighboring Landquart, the “brand name outlet village.”
We will travel through the Fluela Mountain Pass to visit the famous villages of Klosters and Davos. Lots of walking paths among awe-inspiring sights. We will continue to the village of Zernez, at the entrance to the Swiss National Park. The young and the young at heart can take a 10-kilometer scooter ride. Fabulous!
We will set out for Italy, passing through the winding Maloja mountain pass. After just a few kilometers, we will approach the Italian border. We will travel for about 6 kilometers on a narrow, winding highway to the picturesque city of Soglio, which is situated like an amphitheater facing the mountains. We’ll tour romantic alleyways from the Middle Ages and then take a short ride to the Acquafraggia Waterfalls, which cascade down two steps. Then we travel via a tunnel road to Lake Como, where we’ll take a boat ride and stop in lovely Bellagio. We’ll visit its alleyways and slopes, taking in the sight of shops, people and lush gardens. An enchanting place you’ll find hard to leave.
