We were advised to walk from the town, round the lake. It takes 20-30 mins and is well worth it. There is a hotel and restaurant at the end too. The walk is moderate, quite flat and through forest. The architecture on the main lake section is lovely.

Interesting stroll in winter along the lake. From there you can see the old and famous ;) In winter, the lake can be covered with a white curtain. This year, it did start, but then the weather changed drastically beginning of January, and the ice break down and melted. Ducks were having fun! If you want to eat, you have... More

Staying in St. Moritz, this was an easy walk. First walk by the eastern side of the St. Moritz lake, then follow the clearly marked signs into the forest. The forest is extremely peaceful and quiet with clear walking trails. Walking to Lej da Staz was easy and made for some great photos. Further on from Lej da Staz you... More

This is a cozy little town that sits on the side of the mountain in front of a beautiful lake. We went in May and the town is virtually closed so we had it practically all to ourself. The streets are very narrow so I would hate to see in high season but in May it's the best

You can arrive lake of staz from Celerina or from St. Moritz. The lake is small, but you can swim in the lake at summer time. There is a nice restaurant which lies adjacent to the idyllic lake. Nearby there is a great forest and the area is very authentic.

We decided to walk round the lake in the evening and after a long day on the train it didn't disappoint. The views back across to St Moritz are great and it wasn't half as far as we thought.

We took the Bernina Express train from Tirano to St. Moritz, Switzerland. It is a very upmarket town with interesting building, superb shops and, of course, the wonderful lake. On disembarking from the train we walked to the town square and enjoyed window shopping in the designer shops. We passed the Palace Hotel with its long black Rolls Royce cars... More

I got to run through the woods on an August afternoon from the Youth Hostel and I found this lake unexpectedly. I took off my shirt and sneakers, and began to swim. The natural setting is wonderful, very green and peaceful. Between the lodge and the lake there is a track that can be reached by bicycle, but it is... More
