Highlights

 
     

    Piz Bernina (4049 m) divides two glacial valleys, the Tschierva Glacier and the Morteratsch Glacier. The highest peak of the Bernina Massif is surrounded by breathtaking lakes, valleys and glaciers.

    That will also be the scenery of this 7-day guided hike full of cultural areas to visit such as the Engadine (a high valley of the Romansh speaking Switzerland), Valmalenco (a side valley of the Vetlin, Italy) and Val Poschiavo (an isolated valley divided form the rest of the Italian Switzerland).

    On our way, we will discover wonderful areas such as the idyllic Val Roseg, and amazing views of glaciers. We will be able to marvel at the sight of the Cavloc Lake and the Muretto Valley.

    We will have the privilege to go through a historic mule track and walk on steep ramps, back and forth Italy and Switzerland. We will not believe the beauty of Val Poschiavo with its superb nature. On the very last day, we will take the ridge pass to Munt Pers, at 3207 m, and get to enjoy its 360º panorama on the summit.

    Also, you do not need high endurance or any technical skill to join. However, you should be able to take steady footsteps even in difficult terrains, and be fit enough to go through 7-days of walking at a fairly high altitude.

    These reasons are more than enough to book this hike now. If you do so, you will not forget this unique experience through the Bernina Alps.

    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.
