Big circular tour in the Upper Engadine leading to the finest vantage points and through idyllic woods with Lei Zuppo and Lei da Statz bathing lakes. There are several joining and exit points which means this tour can easily be split into stages.
From Celerina the route follows the emerging Inn to Samedan. From there you start climbing to the Alp Muntasch, which is farmed during the summer months. Along the panorama trail below the Piz Padella you keep catching sight of the Upper Engadine and the Bernina Valley from different angles. From Padella Kulm a flowing trail takes you down to the Marguns summit station and on via Lej Alv up to the Corviglia summit station.
From Corviglia the route runs along a gravelled road down to the Signal summit station. It then carries on past the cosy Chamanna Trutz and the legendary El Paradiso Hut. From the Alp Suvretta, the challenging single track offers a view of Lake Silvaplana. Parallel to the Julier Pass road, the route takes you down to the village of Silvaplana.
From Surlei the character of the tour changes completely. The mountain pine forest with its hill moors, little moor lakes, tall grass and fern has something mystical and magical about it. In mid-summer, the Lej Zuppo and further along the Statzer Lake tempt you to take a dip. Through the Statzer Forest, made famous by the Engadine Ski Marathon, and on the descent to Celerina you can relax and enjoy the scent of the pine forest.
