Like majestic white tongues the Pers Glacier and the Morteratsch Glacier seem to push forth from the ice and snow-covered Piz Palü and Piz Bernina towards Pontresina.

A classic glacier hike. Escorted by a well-informed mountain guide, one departs from the mountain station of the Diavolezza aerial cable car (2973 m.a.s.l.). From here, cross the glacier to the promontory of the Isla Persa. Then continue to the side moraines and wind up at the Boval Hut. Hikers will enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Piz Palü and Piz Bernina (4049 m.a.sl.). Then descend to the glacier's entry point and wind up at the station of Morteratsch.
Glacier hike only recommended in the presence of a knowledgeable mountain guide.

How to get there:
Drive or take public transportation from St. Moritz/ Pontresina to Bernina-Diavolezza, to Diavolezza by aerial cable-car.
