4-day trek through the south side of Bernina


Join Ruedi, an ASAM mountain leader, in a one-of-a-kind trekking tour on the south side of Bernina. Enjoy 4-days of amazing landscapes and fun!

Not specified


4 Days

Jul, Aug, Sep




Around the Bernina Alps, the views are astonishing: glaciers, lakes and valleys, all part of a wonderful landscape that looks like a fresh painting. The cultural richness is also big if you decide to hike in the area.

On a 4-day trek, we will be able to explore the picturesque area of Maloja and Passo del Muretto, as well as the pristine waters of the Cavloc Lake. Also, we will hike on mountain flanks to reach Alpe Roggione, at 2000 m. Bocchel del Torno and Dosso dei Vetti offer great landscapes on their way to Campo Franscia.

The Gera Lake is also a beauty worth seeing as well as Val Poschiavo and Cavaglià. Glacier mills, mountain lakes and so much more are waiting for us if you join this expedition.

All these wonderful places (and more) could be the destination of your next adventure as long as you are physically fit and have a steady footstep. You just have to reach the green button and request this trip. We will do the rest.

You can also have a longer experience around the Bernina Alps, if you book this 7-day guided mountain trek.

Price details

The price does not include snacks or drinks.


Day 1: Maloja – Passo del Muretto – Rifugio Longoni CAI

Passing through woods and  a moorland, we reach the Cavloc Lake. Then, it gets steeper through the lonely Muretto valley to the pass (2562 m).  Afterwards, we descend towards Alpe Oro, over a historic mule track. Then we get back up to Alpe Fora and to the Longoni hut CAI (Club Alpino Italiano).

Day 2: Rifugio Longoni – Campo Franscia

We hike the Alta Via della Valmalenco high above the valley of the mountain flank. We reach the Alpe Roggione, at 2000 m. We continue to Bocchel del Torno and Dosso dei Vetti to Campo Franscia.

Day 3: Lago di Gera – Pass da Canfinal – Cavaglia

We drive to the dam of the Lago di Gera and reach the top of the wall via a dizzying concrete ramp (not dangerous). On the riverside path we reach the Alpe Gembré. The ascent to the Pass da Canfinal (2628 m) brings us back to Switzerland. It goes up over the Val Poschiavo on a high-altitude trail to Cavaglia.

Day 4: Cavaglia – Bernina Diavolezza

The day starts with a visit to the glacier mills in the glacier garden. Then, it follows with a ride on the train to Alp Grüm.  Then, we walk to Sassal Mason with wonderful views of the Val Poschiavo and further into the wide valley of the Bernina Pass. The Lago Bianco, the mountain lakes, the Cambrena Glacier and the Bernina Express are the final destinations until we reach the Diavolezza cable car. We end our hike at the train station of Bernina-Diavolezza.

About the guide

... over all hills! Away from the hustle and bustle, I accompany you through the impressive nature of the mountains. In good company, you can relax on multi-day trekking, on a hike or in winter on snowshoes.

I was born in the Engadine in 1958 and grew up in Pontresina, only 8 km from the world-famous St. Moritz.

As a teenager I experienced a 5-year study visit in central Italy. This made Italy very dear to me and I then lived many years in Italy - in Chiavenna, not far from Lake Como. So I do not only know the Engadin / St. Moritz but also the Bernina south side, the Comersee region and the Splügenpass area like my trouser pocket.

I have been pursuing my hobbies "for a lifetime" - hiking, mountaineering, ski touring, delta flying, kayaking and traveling - since June 2015 I am a certified hiking guide SBV.

My current place of residence is Schlarigna, as Celerina / St. Moritz calls itself Romansh. Romansh is also my mother tongue - but of course I also speak German and Italian, in French and English I can communicate.

I would be happy to accompany you through my homeland, the Engadine, the Bernina south side, the Veltlin and the region of Lake Como. Together we experience beautiful days.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
