  • Overview

    Walking in the Engadine contains detailed route descriptions for 100 day walk routes that vary from 4 to 16km long in length. The routes cover a variety of terrain from luscious meadows and craggy mountains to glaciers and snowpeaks. Most of the walks described in this guidebook have been chosen with a particular viewpoint, lake, alp hamlet, hut or pass as the destination, while the principal objective of each walk is to enjoy a day's exercise among stimulating scenery.

    There's something for every walker's taste: gentle valley rambles for a family outing; craggy mid-mountain walks for the more adventurous; high-level routes that lead across glacier, snowfield and rugged passes for the experienced mountain trekker.

    Tucked away in the south-east corner of Switzerland, the Engadine is a region of lakes and mountains, home of the country's only national park, guardian of the Romansch language and location for some of the most sublime villages in all the Alps.
