Hotel Saratz, Pontresina

Turn-by-turn directions

You travel by post bus to Surlej. The bus stop is in front of the Hotel Cresta Palace. You take the bus no. 6 direction Sils/Segl Maria and get off at the bus stop Surlej Corvatschbahn. With the cable car Corvatsch you go to the mid-station Murtèl on 2702 m.a.s.l. Here you can already enjoy a wonderful view over the Engadiner lake district. After about 45 minutes walking you reach the Fuorcla Surlej, from where you can see one of the most spectacular panoramas of the Alps. There you can see an enormous arena of ice and rock, in the background the Piz Tschierva, Piz Morteratsch, Piz Bernina with the famous Biancograt, Piz Roseg and the Sella group surrounded by impressive glaciers. Around the Fuorcla Surlej there are silent signs of the last ice age. Round rocks drawn by the ice masses, between which small lakes were formed. From Fuorcla Surlej, the path descends into Val Roseg with a magnificent view over the entire valley and the majestic glaciers. After approx. 2.5 hours walking through the enchanting beauty of this high valley you reach the restaurant Roseg Glacier, where we warmly recommend you a short stop over for a delicious desert. From there it's another 1.5 hour on foot through the Val Roseg to Pontresina.

Easier option: From the restaurant Roseg Glacier you can be tranfered comfortably in a horse-drawn carriage (approx. 1 hour drive) to Pontresina. Please take into account, that the departing times from the Restaurant Roseg Glacier are 1.45, 2.45 and 3.45 pm and the ticket costs CHF 20.- per person.
