Easy walking

A, generally flat walk around the lake with lovely views which takes a couple of hours at an easy pace. We always do this walk when we stay in the town.

Very much enjoyed the walk through the forest on a fine autumn morning up to and around the lake which is very scenic.

This is just a lake you pass on the walk between Pontresina and St Moritz. Easily accessible from both, but nothing extraordinary, the walk's the thing. The walk is easy and pleasant.

The lake is rather small but beautiful it is too small for water sports but the view is grand. The two alternative routes to the lake to and from the main s moritz lake lead you through a magnificent forest up and down a mountain slope in one case and quite a flat walking path in the other Just few...

This Lake is such a beauty, particularly when frozen in the winter! However what is amazing is the surrounding town of St. Moritz, with the beautiful statues and fountains! Worth a return visit definitely!
