The Bernina Tour offers wonderful views of the glaciers in the Bernina mountain range. The route leads from the Bernina Pass, over the Diavolezza and down to Pontresina, and then up to the Fuorcla Surlej, with views over the Engadin’s lake-strewn landscape as far as Maloja. By starting at the Bernina Pass, runners have the opportunity to loosen up their muscles on the easy stretch along the Lago Bianco before tackling the 1,000 vertical metres up to the Munt Pers, at 3,207 metres above sea level. From here, you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Pers and Morteratsch glaciers. Back at the summit station of the Diavolezza aerial cableway, the trail leads past the Lej da Diavolezza lake and down to the valley station. After crossing the main road, the steep ascent to the Fuorcla Pischa at 2,835 metres begins. On the descent to Pontresina, you can enjoy refreshments in the Chamanna Paradies hut or the Bergrestaurant Alp Languard. Once you have left the mountaineering village of Pontresina, on the same level as the train station you enter the pretty Val Roseg. In front of the Hotel Restaurant Val Roseg, the path turns right and climbs up to the Fuorcla Surlej, offering views of the Vadret da Roseg lake and the Bianco ridge of the Piz Bernina on the left. After the Fuorcla Surlej, the trail descends 200 vertical metres to the tiny Lej da la Fuorcla lake and traverses the mountain flank to Alp Prasüra and down to the culture village of Sils. The route then leads past the church in Sils Baselgia to the left side of the valley along the Via Engiadina, past the Heidi village of Grevasalvas to Maloja.
