Step by step along the track of the third longest glacier of the Eastern Alps. 16 posts inform visitors about the receding glacier and the mystical lifeforms in its wake. Just 50 minutes on foot from the railway station of Morteratsch, one catches sight of the day’s objective: the milky glacial lake as well as the glacier’s giant icetongue. Download the Bernina Glaciers App onto your smartphone and enjoy the accompaniment of a compelling audio text in the midst of the impressive landscape. Children can experience this unique glacial world, following the stories of the Morteratsch children’s book, and gaining exciting natural insight. At the end of the tour, there awaits a surprise for them!
