The Inn river has more water than any other Alpine river and provides an endless source of inspiration for the people living along its banks. Its origins lie in the Upper Engadin region. From there, the Inn – known in Romansh as the En – flows westwards to Lower Engadin. The gorges of the Inn valley in Lower Engadin are particularly worth mentioning, as they provide whitewater sports enthusiasts with one of the most spectacular stretches of river in the Alps. The river banks are inhabited by a rich diversity of flora and fauna, and provide ideal conditions for fly fishing. Incidentally, the name Engiadina is composed of the words En (the Inn river) and Giardina (meaning garden). So the Engadin region is literally the ‘garden of the Inn’.
