Play of light and shadow

Winter hiking in the Engadine

Winterwandern im Engadin.
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. In between, the Inn flows around contemporary witnesses such as Tarasp Castle and forms winter fairytale scenes of water, snow and ice.


The winter hiking offer

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. Depending on your needs, you can take tours lasting several days, such as the Via Engiadina, or take advantage of the variety, change the side of the valley spontaneously and enjoy the winter at your own pace.
