Graubünden: Pontresina

Graubünden: Pontresina

Finally got myself to Graubünden in autumn and oh boy it’s great. Not just for hiking, but also for biking and skinny dipping and cross-country skiing in winter etc. I really see the potential and understand the hype.

Last Friday, on my last weekend of the season in Switzerland (where did the summer and autumn go?) I took the train to Pontresina (or Puntraschigna as it goes in romansch, 1805m), past Chur etc. (tip: SBB supersaver day pass). Since it’s been a great indian summer in here I just had to use the last chance and go, even though going to Graubünden for days is way better idea than my few hours. (Take a note).

Nevertheless, when I finally arrived in Pontresina, I did a little and I really mean little hike up to the direction of Piz Languard, then to the right to Paradis – with the amazing view to Piz Bernina (4047m ) and Morteratsch glacier – and back down.

I’ve had bit of a flu and overtrained leg, so no big adventures lately and this one wasn’t an exception. Therefore, can recommend this tour to kids and more into easy hikes kind of people as well (or well, cocktail hikes, see the signposts) – and there’s also possibility to take the lift up and/or down to Alp Languard.

My little day tour in here, about 13km and 700m up and 700 down, 4h).
