Under the heading of Bernina Glaciers, another Pixi children’s book has been published, this one leading into Val Roseg. Children will enjoy instructive entertainment along the marvellous hiking trail lined with ten stamping points as Fix, the cunning fox, points out the beauty of his valley and everything to be heard, seen or sniffed at. Fix will teach you about the forest, the animals, hunting and a lot more. Pick up Fix’s scent. Children following his trail right to its end will be rewarded with a surprise. Check the panels for information on forestry, hunting, lichen and birds. Shortly, so-called “interactive stops” are going to be set up at five points of information. The discovery trail was initiated by Club da Fix in close co-operation with cantonal agencies. The children’s book is available for free at tourist information in Pontresina and Val Poschiavo, at the first stamping points as well as at most hotels.
Checked shirts, red socks and hiking pole. The cliché image of hiking is long gone: today, it is en vogue to switch off smartphone and laptop every once in a while and go for a hike in the beauty of nature. And Pontresina is the perfect venue for it: with its 580 km network of hiking trails, it is one of the most popular hiking destinations in Switzerland. Among the highlights are hikes through the ruggedly romantic Rosegtal or on Muottas Muragl – postcard views of the Upper Engadine lakes and the Piz Bernina guranteed. Or the high mountain hike from Muottas Muragl to Alp Languard. The trail leads through the territory of the largest ibex colony in Switzerland. And for those wanting even more, a hike through the only Swiss National Park – just a stone's throw from Pontresina – is a must. Remember to discover Pontresina's Ibex Paradise.
