This is one of the most spectacular walks I've done. It was wonderful to see all those mountains, forests and the glacier itself

Absolutely spectacular skiing across the glacier. Words cannot adequately describe such nature experiences. Up so high in the mountains & alone is a special experience. We took the Diavolezza Gondola to the top. The initial section to get down to the glacier is a little...More

I forgot my gaiters but luckily my shoes could handle snow. There where snow everywhere. Bring your wind and rain breaker if you have one. Knee height for a tall German guy. For me, thigh height. Just go, before it disappears.

nice cross country trail, but going up all the way and going all the way down when you return, well maintained, but is a winter trail as well, so people may walk on the trail

When you approach the glacier by train or road from Pontresina the glacier confronts you in all its glory with the peaks behind it. Takes your breath away. From the top of Diavolezza you can ski down to the Glacier and along its itinerary route...More

The fast withdrawal of the glacier is leaving its marks along the valley. The path ( about 1hour or 1 hour30 ) leads through different environment, habitats, vegetation and fauna, an educational itinerary through the glacier ages. The path is easy and well kept in...More
