This high-altitude hike in the Lower Engadine leads you along the sunny side of the valley through authentic Engadine villages such as Guarda, Ardez or Sent. You will enjoy varied day hikes and magnificent panoramic views of the Lower Engadine Dolomites.


The Via Engiadina is characterised by the fact that many of the best preserved Engadine villages are strung together along its route like a string of pearls. A special charm results from the small but subtle differences from village to village. If you look closely and compare them, you will recognise the characteristic of each individual town. If time permits, we recommend a guided tour of Guarda, Ardez, Scuol, Sent or Susch. Additional highlights along the route are the castle hill of the Steinsberg ruins in Ardez or a sledge ride from the Ftan-Prui chairlift. In Sent it is worth taking the time to walk through the village with its sweeping squares and look up at the sky. The famous Sent gables date back to the end of the 18th century, when many villagers abroad (mostly in Italy and Austria) hoped for a better economic life as confectioners and, by returning, shaped the western Tyrolean flair of the village.


The trail is groomed after each snowfall. Please note the condition reports in the winter sports report. The tour was assessed in favourable weather conditions, the current snow and weather conditions must be observed before starting.


The trail passes through wildlife rest areas, please do not leave forest trails.The trail runs partly on cross-country ski trails and ski slopes - please walk along the edge of the trails/slopes.The km figures for the route include the ascent Scuol - Motta Naluns.
