St Moritz, Walking & Hiking

St Moritz and the Upper Engadine offer up a wealth of high altitude walking routes for those with the lung capacity to cope. The village nestles at 1856 meters or just under 6000 feet and several peaks rise above the 10,000 feet mark. As anyone that has ever experienced hiking at this sort of altitude will confirm it ain’t no walk in the park. Fortunately the lifts operate throughout the summer months so it doesn’t all have to be uphill.

The region has an interesting variety of walking environments including everything from rugged rocky ridges and glistening glaciers to flower filled alpine meadows and forested lakeside paths. And the area is vast, accessed via a 580 kilometre network of hiking trails. Sometimes dramatic and sometimes serene the ever changing scenery is almost always captivating.

A long walk on a hot summer’s day can be rewarded with a cooling dip in one of the valley’s lakes – just watch out for the windsurfers and sailing dinghies – or a cool drink from one of the mountain restaurants.
