We’re standing on a mountain ridge with the Swiss National Park behind us and the pristine wilderness of the Engadin all around. We take in the view of Tarasp Castle and the ruins of Steinsberg Castle in the immense hiking region in eastern Graubünden. The smell of mountain pine fills the air, dew nestles in the petals of Alpine roses and we can hear the local baker greeting his first customers of the day. The Postbus, Rhätische Bahn railway and the cable cars transport more hiking enthusiasts from the quaint Engadin villages in the valley below to the region’s 300 hiking trails, to the Bogn Engiadina mineral bathhouse, or bring them closer to the numerous mountain chalets. Organised luggage transport, seamless signage and specialised hiking guides help us to enjoy this moment unencumbered, so we can concentrate on what’s most important: the spectacular view of Lower Engadin. This is hiking at its very best.

Swiss National Park
It is the oldest national park in the Alps and was founded in 1914. The three goals are total protection research and information. Strict protection against human influence allows nature to develop uninfluenced and autonomously. This leads to a very high species richness of flora and fauna. The National Park can be explored individually or on a guided hike on 100 km of official hiking routes. In winter the national park is completely closed for nature protection. The National Park Centre in Zernez is open all year round. Under the motto experience, learn and discover, you will be introduced to the theme of the national park with its history and the diversity of nature.Learn more about the National Park
