Biking can be exhausting at time, but then again it awards you with beautiful moments of weightlessness. It is always fun – especially when you find the perfect trails.
Skis are an integral part of the St. Moritz winter, just as mountain bikes whenever there is no snow. In summer and way into the colorful late autumn, the Engadine Mountains offer a unique setting for biking. Come with a clear schedule and plenty of energy. You will definitely get your fill of excursions, carbs and everything else up here.
Of course, the “everything else” includes the tracks – e.g. the three new flow trails on the Corviglia. The downhill tracks are harmoniously nestled into the landscape and take you on different routes from Corviglia Mountain Station to the middle station. Those are trails for the eyes and the heart – less strenuous on the legs. Even families and less experienced bikers will feel right at home here. A flow trail puts the crowning touch on every successful ascent but is also suited as a relaxed warm-up lap on a beautiful day. The most beautiful downhill ride, however, is the one at sunset. You may even end up taking a break here and there to take a few photos.
Besides the Corviglia, there are many more trails to climb, discover, and experience in the Engadine. It is beautiful along the bottom of the valley; more strenuous, but just as breathtaking, is the ride over the Bernina Pass into the Puschlav. In case you want to plan ahead, you can do this right here. Otherwise, we'll be happy to assist you when you drop by at our front desk. As exceptionally bike-friendly hotel (lauded by the Label Swiss Bike Hotel), we offer free rental bikes, a repair shop, overnight laundry service and customized packed lunches. And thanks to our location right at the Corviglia Valley Station, you can enjoy the flow in no time.
