The starting point for this hike is Pontresina railway station. From there the winter hiking trail takes us into the car-free Val Roseg. With a little luck you'll spot a deer or a chamois dashing across the path in front of you. The destination for the hike is the welcoming Restaurant Roseg Gletscher. How about a dessert? The Restaurant is famous far and wide for its delicious buffet. For the return journey to Pontresina why not book a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride back to Pontresina railway station.

Author’s recommendation

From the restaurant Roseg Gletscher, the hiking trail leads a little further into the valley, depending on snow conditions.
