Around the innovative holiday and spa resort of Scuol – where mineral water bubbles from the village fountain – stretches an unspoilt landscape of national-park quality. The authentic Engadin holiday villages have managed to retain their traditional identity, and are proud to show guests their rich Romansh culture. The valley may lie at the end of the railway line and far from day-tripper traffic, but it has also frequently been a pioneer of new ideas.
The “Engadin Bad Scuol” health and activity baths, opened in 1993, will leave you wanting for nothing. A piece of paradise - a parcel of freedom and quality of life. Switzerland’s first Roman-Irish baths, with their bathing ritual of several hours duration and a stimulating soap-and-brush massage, constitute an attraction of a very special kind. The scenery in which the baths and sauna are set provides a magnificent view of the impressive mountains - bathing at its most enjoyable.
14 bondes conduzem os esportistas de inverno linha acima até a área de esqui alpino de Motta Naluns. Pistas suaves são alternadas com campos de prática mogul e amplas descidas cobertas com neve profunda. Conhecedores falam muito bem da "pista dos sonhos" de 12km de comprimento que desce até Scuol ou Sent, enquanto os mais audazes não poupam elogios ao parque de lazer e ao snowpark. Com o balneário Bogn Engadina Scuol e o primeiro banho turco da Suíça, Scuol desenvolveu-se num dos maiores destinos de férias, saúde e bem-estar.

The Swiss National Park, Tarasp Castle, the Engadine Bad Scuol with Switzerland’s first Roman-Irish bath, authentic Engadine villages with lots of historic buildings and a rich Romansch culture – these are just some of the many assets the Lower Engadine has to offer.
Here, you can immerse yourself in the warmth of the large indoor pool, relax in the jacuzzi or let yourself drift on the salty waters of the saline bath. The outdoor pool has the added advantage of superb views of the Lower Engadine Dolomites and Piz Pisoc, the highest mountain in the Swiss National Park.
The Roman-Irish bathing ritual combines two distinct European bathing traditions. While the Romans swore by the relaxing properties of steam baths at various temperatures, the Ancient Irish placed their faith in hot, dry air. Nineteenth century bathing culture combined these two styles in a single ritual. A soap and brush massage to cleanse the skin and stimulate the circulation and body creaming station are all part of the ritual. It ends in the dimmed light of the relaxation room where guests, wrapped snugly in a warm blanket, can bask in the beauty of the mountains of the Lower Engadine.
- Tarasp Castle – no other castle complex in Switzerland dominates a landscape as imposingly as the mighty 11th century Tarasp Castle, which was built on a one hundred meter high rock.
- Bad Engadin Scuol – a modern thermal spa with a bathing and sauna landscape, Roman-Irish baths and various wellness and therapy opportunities.
- Swiss National Park – with 172 square kilometers, it is the largest nature reserve in Switzerland and has a 80 km long network of hiking trails and nature tours.
- The village of Guarda – a peaceful vacation spot on a sunny terrace, the village architecture has national significance and includes splendid, sgraffito-decorated Engadine houses.
- Rafting on the Inn – the white water ravines of the Inn in the summer are without a doubt one of the most spectacular rafting stretches in the Alps.
