Bernina Glaciers

Between the Engadin and Valposchiavo

Experience the fascination of glaciers in the Bernina Glaciers adventure territory located between the Engadin and Valposchiavo. Glaciers, energy and time combine to give visitors a fantastic experience of nature and some unique attractions.

Everything revolves around eternal ice, which is on full display when looking out on the Bernina range from the vantage point at the Diavolezza mountaintop station; it is accessible most easily walking the Morteratsch-glacier theme trail; and it appears at Cavaglia in the form of remarkable glacial mills created by nature in the course of millennia.

Rhaetian Railway’s spectacular Bernina line, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, interconnects the numerous highlights, making them easily accessible. Along the train trip, passengers get plenty of opportunities to discover unique natural backdrops, a meteorological, cultural and linguistic boundary, unusual choices of accommodation, a great variety of hiking and biking trails as well as delicious food.

LAGO BIANCO 2234

Skating the old-fashioned way, on a frozen lake with the ice as black as the night. An Alpine natural spectacle embedded in the mountainscape surrounding Piz Bernina. This unique experience is the latest attraction between Upper Engadine and Val Poschiavo!
