CHF 964.- for 4 nights  Price per person in double room

On up to 230 wonderful kilometres of unsurpassed scenic variety, top cross-country ski trail quality and legendary snow guarantee, cross-country fans will find their own personal dream trails. No doubt about it: In the Engadine you are always on the right track! With the "Cross-country Safari Engadin" you will explore the paradise of silver tracks for 5 days - 4 nights - and you will walk weightlessly from hotel to hotel, because your luggage will be delivered as a matter of course. Our program suggestion:

1st day: Arrival at Hotel Castell via Zuoz

Welcome above the roofs of Zuoz! If you arrive by public transport, the porter of Hotel Castell will be happy to pick you up at the station. Please call 081-851 52 53 for the shuttle service before arrival.
If you arrive by car, you can leave your car in the outside car park free of charge for 5 days (extra charge for garage space: CHF 14.-/day).

Have you brought your own cross-country skiing equipment - or would you like to have it professionally equipped for the duration of your stay? The hotel will gladly drive you to the Willy sports shop. There you can equip yourself perfectly, prepare your skis or simply adjust them. The Willy Sport team will be happy to help you in word and deed. Would you like to try out a little test drive to get used to it? The sports shop is located directly on the cross-country ski run, which is ideal for a first test training.

After your first taste of snow, enjoy the hammam of the Hotel Castell****S - and look forward to a 4-course dinner in the stylish hotel restaurant.

2nd day: Cross-country skiing in Val Bever

After a quiet and restful night in a comfortable room, you will have strengthened yourself at the rich breakfast buffet and set off on the first stage of your cross-country skiing safari. Please leave your luggage at the reception desk so that it can be transported to the Cresta Palace Hotel in Celerina for you.

The red train will take you comfortably to Samedan, where you change to the train to Chur, which will take you to Spinas (attention: stop on request). In the immediate vicinity of the railway station you will find the cross-country skiing trail (classic and skating). This meanders along the route of the Rhaetian Railway from Spinas, slightly descending to Bever in the Val Bever in Graubünden. Along the way you can enjoy the fascinating fairytale backdrop of the surrounding peaks of the Bernina Group and the beautiful Val Bever.
In the lower village of Bever you will find a connection to the marathon track. Approx. 500 m after the railway subway, a classic cross-country trail branches off to the right and leads across the airfield to Celerina. This route takes about 2 hours in total.

You are already expected at the Cresta Palace Hotel****S. Look forward to your spacious room, the warming spa area and the 4-course dinner in the hotel's Grand Restaurant.

3rd day: Glide over the Engadine lake district

Sleep well? After breakfast from the buffet with many of the finest specialities, you set off on the next stage of your cross-country skiing safari - not without first depositing your luggage at the reception for its transfer to the Hotel Saratz.

What do your muscles say - do you feel like an extensive sporty or a gentle tour? The choice is yours: for the longer version (3h30), take bus n°2 or 6, which leaves directly in front of the hotel, to Sils Maria, Seglias. Here you take the cross-country ski run 31, the world-famous Engadin Marathon cross-country skiing route. It takes you over snow and ice. You glide over the Silvaplanersee and Champfersee lakes to St. Moritz, past the St.Moritzersee lake to the fairytale Stazersee. Here you can enjoy a cup of tea in the restaurant by the lake before you set off on the last leg of the journey to Pontresina.
For the shorter version (1h40) we recommend you board the bus at the bus stop St. Moritz Bad, Sonne (bus no. 6 from Celerina). Here you won't be gliding over the Engadine lake district, but the wonderful Stazerwald forest will make your winter heart beat faster.

The Hotel Saratz****S in Pontresina is already waiting with a welcome drink. Enjoy the magnificent view of the Roseg valley and the soothing Hamam - and let yourself be pampered by a 4-course gourmet dinner from the award-winning kitchen - served in the historic Art Nouveau hall.

4th day: From Pontresina back to Zuoz

Today's route takes you over a good 16 km gently along the plain - the paradisiacal silver tracks of the marathon route always lead you along the young Inn to the train station in Zuoz. Please inform your hosts at the Hotel Castell****S in Zuoz on 081-851 52 53 of your arrival at Zuoz railway station in good time so that you can be picked up by the hotel bus.

Enjoy the best view over the whole valley from your comfortable room! Welcome back to the wonderful hotel world between art, nature, culinary delights and wellness.

5th Day: Departure - goodbye!

After the already well-known rich breakfast from the buffet you might already be on your way home. But if you still have some time left, we recommend you to take the free ski bus directly in front of the hotel and drive to Sils-Maria. On your way back to Celerina, where your luggage and maybe your car is still parked, you will experience the vastness of the Upper Engadine high valley from a unique perspective on the unique lakes cross-country ski run. Where else in the world do you walk across 3 frozen lakes on perfectly prepared slopes?

We wish you a safe journey home and say: a revair!
