The Greina Plateau lies between the cantons of Graubünden and Ticino. Even as early as the Roman era, important routes across the Alps led through this region. The plateau has remained an untouched jewel because it is still only reached on foot.

Thanks for your rating
The plateau of Greina (Plaun la Greina), six kilometers long and one kilometer wide, is a unique Alpine tundra landscape at an elevation of 2,200 meters. It is a protected landscape and has luckily been mostly spared as far as human encroachment is concerned. Numerous springs feed small mountain brooks that flow undisturbed through the plateau and form meanders, ponds and fens.

The Greina Plateau can be reached on foot from five different locations in Graubünden and Ticino. Four huts are available for overnight stays, the Terri Hut, the Capanna Motterascio, the Capanna Scaletta and - a little further away - the Medel Hut
