Mountain Bike Tour - Corviglia Flowtrails
The panorama of the Bernina Massif and the run over Alp Nova make this route a favourite with mountain bikers. Marvel at the otherworldly karstic landscape of the stretch beneath Sass Runzol, before following the flow trail from the mountain hut to Alp Giop and finishing at Chantarella – a great workout amid beautiful surroundings.
Mountain Bike Tour - Val Suvretta
This route begins at Celerina railway station and traverses the woodlands and lakes of the Val Suvretta and Val Bever. With gravel tracks, some steep ascents around Piz Nair, a 6km (3.7 mile) flow trail leading down to a spectacular high-mountain basin and a few bumpy sections to keep you on your toes, this route has a bit of everything.
Biking Trail - River Inn
Follow the fast-flowing waters of the River Inn for the opportunity to take in some local architecture, see yourself reflected in crystal lakes, and perhaps do a little bird-spotting: you might be lucky enough to see some spotted nutcrackers in the Stazer forest. As the valley gets narrower, prepare for a steep ascent leading to the idyllic village of Guarda. Don't miss the chance to take a tour of the Rhaetian Railway as you return.
Biking Trail – Bernina Express
This demanding, but spectacular trail is a must for real mountain biking fanatics – from a winding path behind Pontresina, through forests up to Bernina Pass with its commanding views of the local glaciers, it is a scenic treat as well as a way to put your fitness to the test! After taking a break to enjoy the vistas, continue on the challenging trail following the Bernina Railway to Val Poschiavo.
