Breathtaking views of the summits towering above the Upper Engadine and Bernina Valleys reward hikers completing the very steep climb to the summit of Piz Languard. This summit is one of the easier 3,000-meter peaks to scale, with a good, albeit rugged, trail going to the top.
Distance: 3.0 - 12.3 miles (One Way)
Glorious, panoramic views of Piz Bernina and Piz Roseg from Fuorcla Surlej, front row seats to an incredible spectacle of rock and ice from Coaz Hut and a lovely walk through the beautiful meadows and forests of Val Roseg make this one of my favorite hikes in the St. Moritz area.
Distance: 6.7 - 8.0 miles (Round Trip)
The hike to the Boval Hut enjoys breathtaking views of the dramatic glacial cirque at the head of the Morteratsch Valley, dominated by the Piz Palu and Bernina massifs along with the Morteratsch and Pers glaciers.
Distance: 4.0 - 6.0 miles (One Way)
A short hike that is long on panoramic views of the high peak towering above the Roseg, Morteratsch and Upper Engadine valleys. Extend the hike with a high traverse beneath the ridge anchored by Piz Muragl and Piz Languard for great views of the Bernina massif.
Distance: 4.5 miles (Round Trip)
The Segantini Hut, high above Pontresina in the Bernina Valley, offers birds-eye-views of the summits soaring above the Roseg, Morteratsch and Upper Engadine Valleys.

This delightful walk traverses the eastern shores of Lake Silvaplana (Silvaplanersee) and Lake Sils (Silsersee) with lovely views stretching across the lakes to the high peaks towering above the Upper Engadine Valley.
