Easy and very beautiful 50 minute walk from the trainstation to the gletcher. Nature and views are spectacular. But the retreating of the gletcher and the high temperature there on the 24th of August (25 degrees Celsius) puts the fast changing climate right in your...More

We last visited the Glacier back in 2005 with our two sons. Back then you could easily walk onto it. Now it has retreated back a considerable distance making it a rough scramble to get on it. The walk up from the train station is...More

Originally, we wanted to go to Allalinhorn (4027m) with a guide from Saas Fee but unfortunately, the weather was too bad and the hikes were cancelled. So we moved to the sunny Engadin and booked a Diavolezza-Morteratsch Glacier hike with the Bergsteigerschule Pontresina. We took...More

This is a fantastic experience on the Morteratsch glacier from Diavolezza down to Morteratsch train station. 10 km slope over the glacier with very scenic views. It's not about skiing or snowboarding, it's about a very peaceful journey within nature. You can ski here only...More

There are two different ways to see the Glacier, you can go up to Diavolezza and then walk down the Glacier or Ski down in Winter, you have to check wether the trail is open or you can go to Morteratsch by car or by train... More
