Lake Sils: Cruise on the Top


There may be higher mountain lakes but only Lake Sils offers regularly scheduled transportation. The boats are not only used by visitors but also hikers who leave Sils Maria to glide to Maloja via Chastè, Plaun da Lej and Isola.

On the journey past the peninsula of Chastè one can catch a glimpse of the larch trees where Nietzsche spun his grandiose thoughts during many summers. In Maloja follow the trails of Giovanni Segantini, the landscape painter who was inspired by the light of this area. The boat cruise shortens the classic 4-lakes hike which includes Lakes St. Moritz, Champfer, Silvaplana, and Sils. It saves one hour of walking.
Boat connections run from end of June to end of September.

How to get there:
Drive or take public transportation from Chur via Albula Pass or Julier Pass to Sils.
