“A Not to be Missed Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

A forty to fifty minute horse drawn carriage ride takes you into the Roseg Valley famous for its luxuriant Alpine vegetation. During the approximately five mile ride you pass lots of physically fit young and old Europeans enjoying the hiking and picnicking options. The view also includes lots of Alpine vegetation, Swiss pines, larch wood, cows and the ever present magnificent Roseg Glacier. Once you reach the end of the ride there's a restaurant with a very popular outside terrace where it is possible to sit for hours enjoying a coffee or cold drink while gazing at truly spectacular scenery. The ride back is just as enjoyable if you are seated behind the drive. On the ride up sit across from the driver to really enjoy the view of the glacier.

“The most beautiful hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Being Swiss, I know: there are very few hikes as beautiful as hiking 1 1/2 hours into Val Roseg. You will see why.

“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
