The Morteratsch campsite, which is located in an attractive hiking region, is one of the most beautiful campsites in Switzerland. It lies 1860 m a.s.l. in a forest setting amidst larch and stone-pine woods. The invigorating strength of this unique natural environment set against the dramatic backdrop of the Bernina Range and the nearby Morteratsch Glacier will soon help you forget the daily grind. In summer the campsite is the ideal starting point for fascinating hiking and climbing tours, mountain bike trips, train journeys and much more. A small lake is a perfect spot for swimming and paddling. In winter the sites are just as popular. The campsite is located right on the edge of the cross-country skiing trails. The nearby Diavolezza/Lagalb skiing area can easily be reached by bus, and only takes a few minutes.
