Activity list

  • Hiking

    The footpath network of the Engadin is said to extend for 580 kilometers. No one knows the precise figure, but one thing is for sure: every kilometer is a unique experience of nature. Immerse yourself in the inspiring beauty of our landscapes while keeping a sharp eye for details. The paths are scattered with treasures, and with a little luck you can spot marmots, ibex or even an eagle.

  • Biking

    Mountain biking in the Engadin is in a class of its own. Bike transport up to the 3,057 meter Piz Nair; twisting trails to Italy with rides back by train; thrilling tours through forests and valleys, to mountain lakes and glaciers... Spoilt for choice? Just go with the flow – especially on Corviglia. And for everyone, that would like some “support” while biking: on an e-bike, mountain biking is child’s play! Thanks to the powerful motor, you can go much further on any ride and explore landscapes you would not otherwise reach.

  • Trailrunning

    When, in spring, the melting snow reveals the endless network of trails that lead across our region, runners are back in their element. Athletes use the Engadin for altitude training, leisure joggers enjoy the feel-good factor in the magnificent natural landscapes, and freedom-loving trail runners flee the asphalt in pursuit of natural highs. Welcome to the Engadin, heaven for runners!

  • Kite Surfing

    Mornings see Lake Silvaplana lying calm and serene with picturesque surroundings. From midday onwards, the Maloja wind blows up, providing ideal conditions attracting expert and advanced surfers to set their sails in Silvaplana.
    Families and beginners tend to find more suitable conditions in Sils.

    Windsurfing Silvaplana offers 3-hour group lessons across two consecutive days starting from   CHF 240 per person

  • Stand up paddling

    Stand up paddling has been surging on a wave of popularity in recent years. Originally conceived with the idea of riding waves, the sport has evolved even further so that stand up paddling is now possible on lakes, too, as part of an enjoyable tour.
    The Engadin mountain lakes in the morning hours make for a particularly idyllic experience.

    One day rental: CHF 55 per person.
    Alternatively you can participate in a mini tour with an introduction and a tour on the lake. 

  • Horse carriage

    Enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride through unspoiled nature and splendid alpine flora. Journey from Fextal through the majestic Swiss stone pine and larch forest in the shadow to the stunning glacier world of Piz Fedoz and Piz Glüschaint.
    A stop en route in Fex-Cresta allows a look at a beautiful mountain church, built in 1500, with its beautiful frescos created by an unknown Italian artist in 1511.

    Starting from CHF 80 for 1 to 4 persons one-way and CHF 120 return.

Take a look at winter

Nira Alpina is located at the heart of Silvaplana-Surlej, deep in the beautiful Swiss Alps. Thus we are well placed to benefit from the winter seasons that bring thick snow, ice, chilly temperatures, and unique culinary discoveries. The views from our hotel in the winter are simply spectacular.
