Bernina Glaciers Active Week 11.10.-15.10.21

Hiking Music Weeks in the Swiss Mountains

Where the eternal ice meets the golden larches, Nordic folk music rings in our ears and we enjoy a nature experience with every step, we actively let our souls dangle. On guided hikes in the Upper Engadine and Val Poschiavo we experience an oasis of nature. Over the glaciers of the Bernina area, through the wild and romantic Val Roseg or through the Italian Puschlav.

Which hikes you want to enjoy is up to you. Trails of different lengths lead to the same destination. Choose which day's theme inspires you, or take part in the whole week right away.
