From Sils Maria high above the green Lake of Silvaplana to the cosy bathing lake Lej Marsch and on the shore of the Lake of Silvaplana back to Sils Maria
Distance 19.9 km
Past the valley station of the Furtschellas cable car, the trail leads along the shore of Lake Silvaplana to Surlej. When the Maloja wind blows, many water sports enthusiasts cavort on this lake and the lake is dotted with many colourful windsurfers, kitesurfers and sailors flying over the lake and the waves. The tour continues past Crap da Sass Castle to the enchanted Lej Ovis-chel and along the Inn to Lej Marsch. The bathing lake, which is often pleasantly warm by Engadin standards, and its immediate natural surroundings invite you to swim, picnic and barbecue. Return past Lej Nair and Lej Zuppò up to the high moorland plain of Palüd Lungia and on to Surlej. The official mountain bike route no. 1 takes you high above Lake Silvaplana through the varied and impressive mountain forest back to Sils. The views of Lake Silvaplana, which often glows mint green, never cease to amaze.
On the moor lakes Lej Zuppò, Lej Nair and Lej Marsch there are cosy barbecue areas.
