The contrasts that make the Engadin, between Maloja and Zernez, so unique really come to the fore during the months of summer. Majestic Alpine landscapes with glittering white peaks and bizarrely beautiful glaciers rub shoulders with idyllic deep blue lakes and lush green Alpine meadows with their sweet, bright and fragrant flora. These contrasts are also reflected in the 13 Upper Engadin villages and in the culinary range on offer.
Luxury and glamour are just as much at home here as are originality and unpretentious Engadin charm. You'll be spoilt for choice by the wide range of events on offer - everything from sports to art and cultural occasions.
