The best way to truly experience the Engadin is on two feet, and hikers are spoiled for choice when it comes to routes offering sweeping, panoramic views over the valley. Whether you challenge yourself with the Piz Nair to St Moritz route or choose the gentler path from Corviglia, you will return inspired by the natural beauty of the Alps.
Why not take in the sparkling, deep blue waters of the Engadin lake district? Between Maloja and St Moritz is a chain of lakes and a network of paths offering everything from a gentle afternoon stroll to a strenuous hike. Enjoy the Emerald Trail from St Moritz railway station to Sils Maria, the Val Minor tour of the region's smaller lakes or the journey to the source of the River Inn. Be sure to bring a camera: you will want to capture these views forever.
Take a walk on the Senda d'Inspiraziun to combine breathtaking views with captivating sculpture: this circular walk on Muottas Muragl features a number of artworks to contemplate on your journey. Alternatively, discover alpine flora on Heidi's Flower Trail, follow the Glacier Trail's 15 stopping-points, or take a gastronomic odyssey between the region's many fine restaurants: every one is a new experience.
Swiss National Park
With 170sq km (65.6 sq miles) of pristine landscapes that have been protected for more than a century, the Swiss National Park is a haven for the naturalist in all of us. It is the only park in the Alps to be categorised as a strict nature reserve, meaning the plants and animals here are under the highest level of protection – all the better to enjoy them as they were meant to be enjoyed.
