Stage 1: Celerina - Pontresina

This route delights with an incredible panorama of the lakes and glaciers around Piz Corvatsch. From Alp Suvretta you reach a multi-faceted trail that leads down to the Julier Pass road to Silvaplana. In the valley you then continue to Pontresina.

Stage 2: Pontresina - Zuoz

From Pontresina we recommend exploring the Val Roseg, probably the most beautiful side valley of the Engadine. In just over an hour you reach the Hotel Roseg Gletscher, where the restaurant terrace invites you to linger.

Stage 3: Zuoz - Celerina

You ride your mountain bike to Samedan. From there it's uphill to above the forest line, where the magnificent mountain panorama opens up. On Alp Muntatsch, a homemade apple strudel is recommended before heading back downhill on the single trail towards Marguns. This descent demands skill and concentration. From Marguns, the speed can be increased again and you can speed towards Celerina.
