 BIVIO TO SILS-MARIA

21km    1208m+/1169m-
From Bivio, you’re following an old Roman road to the Septimerpass. From this pass, climb higher to the Pass Lunghin and the rocky summit Piz Lunghin (2780m). The trail is fairly smooth and more than fairly steep down from the pass to the lake and continues to drop. After a series of switchbacks, the trail traverses along the Via Engadina through the preserved hamlets of Blaunca and Grevasalvas. A short climb out of Grevasalvas, and it’s low angle cruising through the larches, angling down to Sils-Maria nestled between the glistening waters of the Silser- and Silvaplanersee.

Eat:
  • From Bivio, the tour travels from town to town. Each of the following days you have the ability to stop at a grocery store, besides the hotel stays at either end of the day and the occasional hut along the way.
highlight:

Piz Lunghin (2780m) The only summit of the tour.

Our one rainy day was Bivio to Sils, with heavy rain on Piz Lunghin

Climbing Piz Lunghin is optional and well worth the extra 200 meters of gain
