A winter walk across the frozen lakes reveals the vastness of the high valley from its most impressive side. Especially in the evening light with the sun low in the sky, the walk across the water becomes an unforgettable experience.

The flat winter hiking trails of the lake plateau from Maloja to Silvaplana are also ideal for families with prams.
