Base Camp of the Engadine
Short hikes to one of the many huts, hikes to the glacier in under an hour, and even simple hikes are all overflowing with wondrous surprises. In Pontresina, mountain sports guests don’t have to push themselves to their limits in order to have fun. For beginners in particular there is a comprehensive range of activities on offer – while at the other end of the spectrum, the ambitious climber preparing for major tours in the Himalayas or Patagonia, for example, will also get their money's worth. Or, to quote Gian Luck: "For me, as an all-year mountain guide, Pontresina is the place that is most interesting."
