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.

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

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
