    Descripción:

    The Valley of the Engadine is located in the swiss canton of Graubünden, in the so-called Rhaetian Alps. To the north it borders with the Austrian Tyrol (Silvretta massif) and to the south with the Italian Valtellina and the Stelvio National Park.

    Engadine is known for its hundreds of cross-country ski trails, for its Bobsleigh tracks or the glamor of its polish and refined villages. However, it has the most eastern 4000m mountain in the Alps, the Bernina (4048m), dozens of glaciers and a extensive net of huts belonging to the Swiss Alpine Club.

    Therefore the Engadine hides one of the most valuable treasures of the Alps, where ski touring can be practiced in a spectacular setting, away from the crowds of other mountain ranges.
