- Botanical highlights
Any journey worth doing has a well-known start and finish. But this tour has its own highlight at Fuorcla Surlej. Nowhere can a better view of the majestic Piz Bernina be seen. The first stage of this tour begins in the pine woodlands of Val Roseg.
The ascent to Fuorcla Surlej provides a unique view of both the Roseg and Tschierva glaciers. On reaching Fuorcla Surlej an unbelievable sight of the Bernina range comes into full view. The pulse of any hiker quickens as the beauty of Piz Bernina and Piz Roseg can be seen in all their glory. The reflection of the mountain range can be captured in the small lake of Fuorcla Surlej.
From Furcla Surlej the path begins the descent towards Sils and opens new vistas of the Engadin lakes. Passing through the alpine roses and the blue gentians in the spring landscape, the Silser and Silvaplaner lakes lie below you. The path leads towards the mountain station for the Furtschellas cable car and continues on to Sils.
An overnight stay in the Fuorcla Surlej mountain lodge provides a special experience. Enjoy the sunset and sunrise in this spectacular setting.
