Play of light and shadow

Winter hiking in the Engadine

Via Engiadina: Winterwandern im Engadin.
Via Engiadina zwischen Ftan und Scuol
Like a sgraffito, winter in the Engadine lives from the tension between light and shadow. Here the gentle and wide landscape with sun-drenched Engadine villages far above the Inn, there forests in the shadow of the rugged Lower Engadine Dolomites. 


Our winter hiking world

Over 160 km of winter hiking trails, numerous mountain restaurants, complete signposting and access by PostBus, RhB and mountain railways make winter hiking in unspoilt nature an experience.

Take care of our wildlife

Animals need a lot of strength and endurance in winter, for example to rummage under the snow cover for twigs and buds. Even more energy is needed to escape. To ensure the animals as much rest as possible, we ask you:

  • Observe wildlife rest areas and protected areas.
  • Stay on the trails.
  • Avoid forest edges and snow-free areas.
  • Keep dogs on a leash.
