The path in upper Poschiavo runs along the idyllic Lago Bianco, before winding its way through the Palü Gorge.

On the approximately two to three hour hike, you will not only experience the magnificent landscape of the upper Valposchiavo, but also you can discover many energy topics at eleven information boards. In addition to informative texts, 3D graphics, quizzes and digital animations that can be accessed via QR codes make for an entertaining hike. The trail follows the Bernina line of the Rhaetian Railway, which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

All information boards are complemented by a 3D graphic that is brought to life via QR code.

Children can follow the racy ride of the water drop Pluschin. The children's booklet is available at Ospizio Bernina or at the Tourist Information Pontresina or Poschiavo.
