Hiking in Silvaplana

The high valley of the Engadin with its wonderfully varied network of trails – 580 kilometres (360 miles) in all – is heaven for hiking. The contrasts that characterise this region are bewitching: gently sloping hills draped with lush alpine meadows stand close by mighty glaciers, towering snow-capped peaks and sparkling lakes. The best way to explore this unspoilt landscape is on foot – whether hiking along one of the breathtaking panoramic trails or one of the fascinating theme trails, on a walk along the sparkling lakes, or on a multi-day trek.
The comprehensive network of trails also includes pushchair-accessible paths that are particularly suitable for families. Those preferring a more ambitious mountain hike can make for one of the four areas served by the mountain railways and cableways: Corviglia/Piz Nair, Corvatsch/Furtschellas, Diavolezza and Muottas Muragl/Alp Languard. These all offer thrilling high-altitude trails with spectacular views.

The trails are clearly signposted, and classified according to the guidelines of the BAW (the Graubünden footpaths organisation).
