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).
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.
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.
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.

On the steep climb to the Murettopass could still be old snow, which we will avoid if possible.
The hardest stage requires 8.30 hs of walking and a 1330 m ascent.
... 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.
