Breathtaking views of the summits towering above the Upper Engadine and Bernina Valleys reward hikers completing the very steep climb to the summit of Piz Languard. This summit is one of the easier 3,000-meter peaks to scale, with a good, albeit rugged, trail going to the top.

Fuorcla Surlej to Pontresina via Coaz Hut

Distance: 3.0 - 12.3 miles (One Way)

Glorious, panoramic views of Piz Bernina and Piz Roseg from Fuorcla Surlej, front row seats to an incredible spectacle of rock and ice from Coaz Hut and a lovely walk through the beautiful meadows and forests of Val Roseg make this one of my favorite hikes in the St. Moritz area.

Morteratsch Glacier and Boval Hut

Muottas Muragl to Alp Languard

Distance: 4.0 - 6.0 miles (One Way)

A short hike that is long on panoramic views of the high peak towering above the Roseg, Morteratsch and Upper Engadine valleys. Extend the hike with a high traverse beneath the ridge anchored by Piz Muragl and Piz Languard for great views of the Bernina massif.
