The freshly prepared Bernina bike trails are an absolute dream for mountain-biking enthusiasts.
The track starts just behind Pontresina, from where an easily negotiable, undulating path winds through the forests up to the Bernina Pass. Over and over again, you are treated to spectacular views of the mighty glaciers. Soon after arriving at the top, you can branch off directly towards the Belvedere Hut. However, a quick detour over a high-lying plateau is definitely worthwhile - the view of the Palü glacier is simply stunning. A demanding trail follows the tracks of the Bernina Railway down into the Val Poschiavo. The return journey is by train to the Ospizio Bernina and then by bike back along the Bernina Trail to Pontresina. By the way, Pontresina has grasped the opportunity, at God Chapütschöl, to split the uphill and downhill trails. While the downhill trail is marked by rhythmic bumps and smooth berms, the uphill one meanders its way through a picturesque forest in a regular sequence of turns and a variety of steep ascents. It is the Engadine's first uphill trail specifically adjusted to going up.
Note(s) Free mountainbike maps are available at all tourist offices.
