Sailing in the Swiss Alps
Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains offers complimentary outdoor adventures in St. Moritz
The lush Alpine settings, unspoilt nature and Swiss peacefulness combined with world-renowned events, an elegant lifestyle and unlimited sports possibilities make St. Moritz and the Engadin one of the most beautiful and inspiring valleys in Switzerland. Especially in summer, it is an ideal escape for guests who want to swap hot and humid summer temperatures for breathtaking vistas with a light breeze of the famous Maloja wind.
The Maloja wind, the sun and a crystal-clear mountain lake make the perfect combination for an exclusive sailing adventure – one of six exciting outdoor adventures which guests of Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains can enjoy as a complimentary add-on during their stay this summer. The sailing turn with expert instructions from a skipper takes guests through the glittering water on Lake St. Moritz every Friday. The lake is set at an elevation of 1,822 m above sea level, and next to the spectacular mountain panorama, it offers perfect wind conditions and wind speeds ranging from three to six Beaufort.
Nestled in the sporty heart of the chic Alps resort and only a few steps away from the cable car, the five-star superior hotel is the ideal hub to discover the inspiring Engadin landscape while escaping in style. The hotel`s “Discover the Engadin” programme is comprised of complimentary outdoor activities suitable for families and thrill seekers alike: E-bike tours along the mountain lakes, goat trekking with the guide “Heidi” and her five goats, climbing and abseiling with views to the Morteratsch Glacier or mountain biking with a focus on technique and riding down trails. An additional experience for adrenalin seekers is the glider flight experience, where a rapid winch pulls the glider into the air up to 500 m. Guests fly almost weightlessly over the famous mountain of Muottas Muragl and enjoy a magnificent bird`s-eye view of the Swiss Alps from above.
“We are delighted to spoil our guests with a choice of activities” says Konstantin Zeuke, General Manager of Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains. “Many still think of St. Moritz as a pure winter and skiing destination, but the summer on top of the Swiss Alps is just as diverse. We hope to show the beauty of our beloved valley through these activities.” The programme of outdoor activities is complimentary for all guests staying at Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains this summer season until 30 September 2018.
