Engadin Valley, between spas and cross country skiingMarch 29, 2013
The Engadin is a mountain valley of the Grisons Canton (Kanton Graubünden) in Switzerland, easily accessible from Northern Italy. While the Upper Engadin is renowned for its ski resorts, the lower part of the valley is often a tourist destination for its spas.
The snow-covered slopes of the Upper Engadin enchant visitors with their beauty, full of contrasts. The skiers can enjoy 350 km of slopes and a wide variety of runs. With the high altitude and modern snowmaking systems in the area of Engadin St. Moritz, snow is guaranteed throughout the year.
The Engadin is also popular with cross-country skiers, especially for the varied and unique landscape. It is no surprise that many fans of this sport choose the 200 km of slopes of the valley, which also hosts every year a ski marathon known all over the world.
The Lower Engadin is far less crowded, but thanks to a special microclimate, offers the highest quality water and particularly valuable hot springs. In this regard, it is advisable to stop at the Baths of Scuol, where there are the most wanted baths. A large system of public pools is accompanied by other services, like a luxurious spa and a hot tub with views of the Swiss National Park.
