Silvaplana is a lively, trend-setting holiday resort set amongst the lakes of the Engadin.
On its doorstep, the towering Corvatsch offers unlimited winter sports options. But this is only one reason why Silvaplana has become a magnet for outdoor activity fans: it is also a paradise for snowkiting. Since this spectacular sport was invented on frozen Lake Silvaplana, enthusiasts from all over the world have flocked here to take advantage of the Maloja wind that builds up almost every day around noon until it has the kites dancing across the blue Engadin sky and skimming at speed across the plateau.
The resort also has a wonderfully tranquil side. Set amidst sublimely beautiful and unspoilt scenery with expansive frozen lakes, forests dusted with snow, and peaceful footpaths and scenic cross-country ski trails leading through the enchanting Engadin mountain landscape, Silvaplana also offers an abundance of treats to those who prefer natural highs to adrenalin-fuelled thrills.
