From Surlej, you can travel up to the summit with its fabulous panoramic views of impressive glaciers, imposing mountain peaks and deep-blue lakes. On clear days, it is possible to see as far as the Walliser Alps – keen eyes can even make out the Matterhorn.
Crystal-clear mountain lakes are the focus of a 2.5-hour round-trip hiking route in the Corvatsch-Furtschellas area. The starting point is the Furtschellas mountain station. From there, the tour leads towards Alp Munt, to six small mountain lakes: Lejin Cristal, Lejin Magnetit, Lejin Malachit, Lejin Rhodonit, Lejin S-chaglia, and Lejin Epidot. At every step, you can enjoy the view up to the icy crenellations and rocky flanks of the Corvatsch Massif. Numerous resting places invite you to take a break along the way. Those who prefer to take a break in a restaurant can enjoy a meal in the Rabgiusa Hut or in Restaurant La Chüdera, which features an extensive panorama terrace. An iPod audio guide provides additional information on the lakes and their histories.
Culinary delights in stages – the Via Gastronomica combines the diversity of local cuisine with the beauty of the Engadin mountain landscape. Depending on the choice of route and the size of your appetite, you can choose between "Traditional" and "Gourmet" and enjoy starters, main courses, and dessert in different restaurants.
The well-tended children's zoo at Furtschellas mountain station, close by the Bergrestaurant La Chüdera, is a special treat for children. During the summer season, shaggy mountain goats, cuddly mountain rabbits and chickens to touch, stroke, and feed live here (popcorn available in the restaurant). There is also a playground to try out and for letting off steam – providing an hour or two of relaxation for parents.
