“Perfect combination: Horse drawn carriage ride & walk back to Pontresina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Late August weekend with perfect weather. Great day to enjoy horse drawn carriage ride into the Val Roseg from Pontresina and we walked back (about 2 hour walk). Reserve the horse carriage ride, as you don't want to miss (+41 78 944 7555). Gorgeous scenery: forest, fields, stream, falls, mountains; all breathtaking. Photos can not do it justice. People enjoying hiking, biking, walking. We enjoyed refreshment at the restaurant Roseg Gletscher admired our surroundings and started our walk back to Pontresina. I would have liked to have hiked further up, but we ran out of time. This was a wonderful day.

“a great hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

A great hike from Pontresina. A few hours in duration and a nice reward in the form of the dessert buffet at the Hotel Roseg Gletscher!

If you are staying in Pontresina--you should definitely consider taking this hike

“Val roseg- not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We have hiked and skied up into the Roseg Valley many times. Always lovely. Go all the way up beyond the restaurant to the face of the glacier for a great experience.

“Unforgettable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

This May was very wet and cold. Out of six weeks, we had 1 sunny day and 2 days without rain. Each time I go to Europe, I hike Val Roseg. We started off with umbrellas and walked past the horses who pull the carriages. As we walked, the rain stopped. We did not see any other hikers - just a couple of bikers. The binoculars came in very handy when we spotted chamois (Gemsen.) We also saw many marmots (Murmeltiere) on the other side of the stream. I guess, they enjoyed the beautiful day too. When we finally arrived at the Hotel Roseg, we were greeted by a very friendly young man with the words: "I didn't expect you yet". We were wondering how he knew we were coming. Somebody at the beginning of the trail had called him to tell him that three not so young ladies were coming. He did not have any guests that day but kept open for us! We were delighted and had a Wurst and beer. We had hoped to fetch the horse drawn carriage down - but not such luck. It was Pentecost Monday, it was rainy and nobody, except the three of us, hiked through this beautiful valley. When you are in this area, don't miss this beautiful and easy hike!
