The Engadine & St. Moritz Region
The wide high mountain valley of the Upper Engadine presents itself as a region rich in contrasts. It follows the course of the Inn from the Maloja Pass in a northerly direction until the Ova da Punt Ota stream separates the valley from the Lower Engadine. The landscape of the Upper Engadine is largely characterised by the Upper Engadine lake district with Lake Sils, Lake Silvaplana, Lej da Champfèr and Lake St. Moritz.
The lakes are framed by numerous well-known three-thousand-metre peaks such as Corvatsch and Corviglia. To the south rises the glacier world of the Bernina with the only four-thousand-metre peak in the Eastern Alps, Piz Bernina. Towards the villages in the valley, the slopes become gentler and are adorned with pine and larch forests and a variety of alpine flora.
In the middle of it all lies the exclusive St. Moritz, world-famous as a winter sports resort. Just a few kilometres to the south is the cosy Sils, and in the side valley of the Val Bernina is the mountaineering resort of Pontresina with its magnificent Engadine mountains.
In the middle of it all is the exclusive St. Moritz, famous the world over as a winter sports resort.

You'll have to take the road to get there.
You would like to avoid the pass and still travel by car – then the Vereina Autoverlad is the solution.
