Turn-by-turn directions

1st stage: Corvatsch - Pontresina 
You travel by post bus to Surlej Corvatschbahn. The Corvatsch aerial cableway takes you to the Murtèl middle station at 2702 m above sea level. From here you can already enjoy a wonderful view over the Engadine lake district. After about 45 minutes you reach the Fuorcla Surlej, from where you can see one of the most spectacular panoramas of the Alps. From Fuorcla Surlej, the path descends into Val Roseg with a magnificent view over the entire valley and the majestic glaciers. After approx. 2.5 hours walking through the enchanting beauty of this high valley you reach the restaurant Roseg Glacier, where you can decide whether the way to Pontresina should be covered comfortably in a horse-drawn carriage (approx. 1 hour) or on foot (approx. 1.5 hours).

2nd stage: Alp Languard - Muottas Muragl
The third stage takes you from Alp Languard to Lej Muragl and then to Muottas Muragl. Enjoy the enchanting view of the Upper Engadine lake landscape before descending on funicular to Punt Muragl and take the train to Zuoz.

3rd stage: Zuoz - Celerina

You hike on your first stage from Zuoz via the tranquil village of Madulain. Continue along a mountain trail past La Punt, Bever, Samedan to Celerina. The whole stage is about 17km long and lasts approx. 5 hours.
