The Via Engiadina follows a route not far above the floor of the Upper Engadin valley. The varied hike takes you through Swiss stone pine and larch forests, across little, crystal-clear mountain streams and Alpine meadows, and past idyllic mountain huts and traditional Engadin villages, accompanied all the while by a breathtaking view of the unrivalled Upper Engadin scenery and the glistening glaciers.

Stage 1: Maloja - Silvaplana
This hike starts in Maloja. The village at the bottom of the mountain pass and at the gateway to the unspoilt Bregaglia Valley has attracted artists since time immemorial, thanks to its breathtaking scenery and fascinating interplay of light and shade. The path leads past Pila and Blaunca to the traditional village of Grevasalvas, where Johanna Spyri's children's story, Heidi was set, which slumbers peacefully above Plaun da Lej. At Sils-Baselgia, the hike almost reaches the valley floor, before rising again to end in trendy Silvaplana.
