      This tour takes you almost exclusively on trails from Pontresina to the Mediterranean Valposchiavo - with numerous scenic highlights in view, for which a short or long rest is always worthwhile. Despite only 650 meters of altitude that you can pack away with your eBike, this trip is not for beginners, mainly due to its technical challenges.On this bike tour you will come by Cascata da Bernina (Bergbach) like Danny MacAskill and Claudio Caluori in the video "Home of Trails" - don't forget to take a picture! You can find the video here: From Pontresina, first follow the single trail north of the pass road up to the Montebello curve and then take the marked mountain bike path via Bernina Suot to the Bernina Pass. At the top of the pass there is a trail on the right, which you can use to reach the pass road below.After a few meters it goes up a meadow path, which shortly afterwards becomes a first-class single trail and which you follow to La Rösa. Then you drive a little along the road to Sfazù, before a short climb on a gravel path leads you to the ingenious historical path to San Carlo. From here it is not far to Poschiavo.The best way to get back to the Bernina Pass is to take the Rhaetian Railway, from where you should ideally take the ascent route to Pontresina.

      The Corviglia-Suvretta da San Murezzan circuit is a scenic single trail circuit, for which you can plan around half a day, including all the photo stops along the way. For an eBiker, 1080 meters of altitude do not sound like a big challenge at first. The difficulty of the tour lies in the technical, but fun packed single trail descents. The Forpettas Flowtrail in particular is legendary and should not be missing in any tour planning for the Engadine.The tour appears harmless at first: You don't master the first vertical meters with your eBike, but with the mountain railways of St. Moritz, which first take you to the signal and after a short descent from Chantarella to the Corviglia. Then you are already at 3,059 meters above sea level. We recommend that you take a break in the Quattro Bar to acclimatize and enjoy the view of the surrounding 3,000s and the Bernina Group.This is followed by a short but steep ramp up to the Alpina hut, where you will thank yourself for the panorama break - the air is really thin up here. Now the cross passage follows on a gravel road to Munt da San Murezzan and then a wonderful S1 trail that leads you through the breathtaking high alpine landscape of the Upper Engadine.Then it really starts: The trail from the Suvretta Pass down through the Val Suvretta da San Murezzan is a highlight for lovers of technical challenges. The topic of line selection can be deepened here - and the topic of cool biker photos as well.The gravel path from Alp Suvretta gives you a brief opportunity to get your pulse back to a normal frequency before you end up on the Foppettas Flow Trail: this unique combination of waves and curves rounds off the tour perfectly with a good portion of downhill flow and promises a great deal of fun again in the last few kilometers.

      Even with the eBike, this tour is not for weak calves: 1,900 meters in altitude and 74 kilometers of distance have to be mastered on the way to Val da Fain and the Chaschauna Pass. You will be rewarded with wild, romantic landscapes and a unique view of the customs-free village of Livigno. In addition, there are just as many depth meters over technical, alpine single trails.You start the tour with a full battery at the Bosch eBike charging station in Pontresina, from there you follow the mountain bike path until shortly after Surovas train station. After about five kilometers, the trail leads opposite the driveway on the other side of the valley towards the Bernina Pass. At the Bernina Suot train station, you finally turn into Val da Fain. When the slope is relaxed, the road goes up into the valley to Alp La Stretta and becomes a single trail in the last few meters that leads to the pass.The steep and narrow hiking trail to the pass road to Livigno demands a lot of technical skill. Once there, pedal further out of the valley until you can see Livigno below you. The trail passes above the village and flows into the Valle di Federia. A gravel road takes you in a wide zigzag to the Rifugio Cassana and shortly afterwards to the Pass Chaschauna.

      The following single trail also requires some technical skills before it ends at Alp Chaschauna in Alpstrasse, which in turn leads to S-chanf. At Vaüglia Suot it goes over a bridge and on a forest path past the villages S-chanf and Zuoz. Then you reach Chamues-ch and follow the signposted Inn cycle path along Gravatscha lake, which leads you from there to Punt Muragl and then on to the starting point in Pontresina.

      The tour to Val Chaschauna is a relaxed eBike tour with a moderate 800 meters of altitude and a good mix of panoramic biking and downhill fun. On the way there are always nice opportunities to take a break or stop off and let your gaze wander into the beautiful Alpine world.The first part of the tour takes you on a bike path through the Inn Valley and has no major challenges apart from gentle ups and downs. After this easy curling up, you branch off near S-chanf into the Val Chaschauna, over whose pass you can also drive to Livigno.Once at the top after a short ascent on a gravel road along the slope, always slightly downhill on mostly simple single trails back to Samedan and further to Pontresina. On the way you will pass nice huts and rest areas.

      On this downhill-heavy exit you will experience a true contrast between the cultural and natural landscape. In the morning you start in a barren and high alpine region to enjoy a gelato in the almost Mediterranean Tirano a few hours later. In between is the enchanting Bernina Pass. You can expect about 1,500 meters in altitude and almost twice as many meters in depth over a distance of 55 kilometers.After starting in Pontresina up to the Bernina Pass, you can enjoy fantastic views of the alpine glacier and mountain world of the Engadine. This is followed by the trail highlight of this tour down to the Mediterranean village of Poschiavo. This section of the route is a classic of the region and you should definitely reward yourself for this descent in Poschiavo with a cappuccino in the piazza before continuing to Tirano.On the second section of the tour, nature is much gentler. Instead of the strict coniferous forests, more and more deciduous trees are adding to the picture and the Mediterranean light bathes everything in mild tones. The church of San Romerio, in front of a magnificent Alpine panorama, marks the climax of the last climb before you finally orientate yourself downhill to Tirano. From there you can take the Rhaetian Railway back to the Engadine via the Bernina Pass.

      The Suvretta Loop is practically the highlight tour par excellence in the Engadine. Here you get everything that characterizes this region, served in one tour: sweaty climbs, magnificent Alpine panorama and a few of the best single trails in Switzerland. At 1,180 meters above sea level, the tour is no problem for eBikers - and you can also take your biobike friends with you.From the Bosch eBike charging station in Celerina, you crank up a gravel road up to Marguns and past Lej Alv to Corviglia. You can almost completely master the vertical meters in one piece. Please always plan small breaks along the way so as not to overexert yourself in the thin mountain air.By the way, at Lej Alv there is a Finnish railway at 2,500 meters above sea level, which leads around the lake. There you can often watch the world's best athletes doing altitude training.Above the Corviglia mountain station, turn right towards Suvrettapass. The gravel path to the Munt da San Murezzan gives you the opportunity to enjoy the phenomenal Alpine panorama: from Pontresina and the Bernina Valley to the world-famous Engadine Lake District to Sils, everything spreads out beneath you, while the image of the Bernina massif with its vast glacier world is directly opposite perfected.Trail fun begins at Munt da San Murezzan. The single trail to the Suvretta Pass below the Piz Nair is just fun and gets you in the mood for the descent through the Val Suvretta. From the Suvretta Pass, six wonderful kilometers of single trails await you before you continue on the Alpweg to Spinas, where a well-deserved stop awaits you. From there you roll on a gentle slope to Bever and along the valley floor back to Celerina.

      For this special tour, you will leave the Engadine behind and embark on an exciting, unique journey that you will never forget for a lifetime. The tour from perpetual ice to lemon ice is a very special experience for touring cyclists, racing cyclists, train fans and of course for you with your MTB. And you can even easily adjust the difficulty of the tour to suit your taste.You start in Pontresina and drive uphill on simple trails. If you prefer to drive uphill on asphalt: the road runs parallel, which is usually not very busy. In Morteratsch you can get a little refreshment on the go in the show dairy and above all enjoy the view of the Morteratsch Glacier. When the Bernina Railway was built, the glacier tongue went right up to the tracks. If you want to be even closer to the Eternal Ice, you can either drive into the valley or later take the cable car up to the Diavolezza.The highlight of your tour is the Bernina Pass in every respect. Crystal clear lakes lie far above the tree line and the red trains of the Rhaetian Railway meander through the scree. A unique experience! The Bernina Pass at 2,330 is a dream destination for many bikers and is the border to the Italian-speaking Val Poschiavo.What awaits you now is a 40-kilometer descent over around 2,000 meters in altitude. Sometimes you drive on the little-used main road, sometimes on simple trails directly on the river or on small roads through the villages. Again and again you have the opportunity for a little break with a breathtaking postcard view or a strong espresso.Passing the picturesque Lago di Poschiavo, you keep rolling towards Italy. Kilometer after kilometer you notice how the temperature becomes more pleasant and you are already looking forward to a refreshing lemon ice cream. At the end of Val Poschiavo lies the town of Tirano, where life is bustling. In the narrow streets of the old town, many restaurants await you for your extensive lunch break.Then it's back on the Rhaetian Railway. You can take your bike with you - but remember to make a reservation. The train ride is a single highlight. A trip to the Engadine is worth it for this experience alone!

      There is hardly a nicer spot for a mountain bike than the Engadin. Have you got the urge to try out the MTB or the E-MTB, but don't yet dare to go wild single trails and crisp descents? Then we have the perfect entry-level round for you. It leads you through beautiful corners in the Upper Engadine and you can really try out your bike on gravel, easy trails and quiet, paved bike paths.You can start the tour at all three e-bike charging stations in the Upper Engadine: in Celerina, Pontresina or Bever. You can easily reach all three locations with the Rhaetian Railway. Bever, for example, is at the crossroads of several railway lines. From there you first ride on asphalt side roads without any steep inclines - ideal to get a feeling for your bike.Then your calves or your battery come into play for the first time, because you are riding on the Cresta Run, the Olympic bobsled run. And uphill. Once at the top you drive through the noble winter sports resort of St. Moritz and circle the lake of the same name.After you have left the place, you get the right MTB feeling in the Stazerwald for the first time, because wide gravel roads lead you through the fragrant forest. In the middle is Lake Stazer, so if you need to cool down, you can jump in for a moment.It goes up and down to Pontresina at a leisurely pace. From there you mostly drive near the railroad - trainspotting included. Behind Punt Muragl you can ride an easy trail up and down again. If you had enough adrenaline for today, continue along the Flaz bank until you reach Bever after a beautiful meadow landscape.

      Allegra! On this round tour you follow the traces of the Bündner novels or Romansh novels. They are the smallest Swiss language group with only half a percent of the population. In the Engadine the variant Puter is spoken, which you will discover again and again in many place names and signs.It starts in Bever am Inn. The Inn is called En and the name Engadin is derived from it. On great gravel paths you drive up and down on the slopes near the Inn and always enjoy a great view of the valley. At the height of S-chanf (pronounced: Schtschanf) you turn into the original valley of the Ova da Murtiröl. The babbling brook accompanies you through the wildly romantic, almost untouched nature.The end of the tour is Alp Vaüglia at 1,950 meters. If you feel like it, you can continue on beautiful trails to Alp Chaschauna or you can go back to the Inn Valley on the other side of the river. The fast descent is really fun!The way back to Bever leads you comfortably on asphalt paths through idyllic, original Engadine villages. Here the population still speaks Romansh. Zuoz is particularly beautiful with its special houses. If you see a bakery along the way, briefly get off your bike and enjoy a delicious Engadine nut cake that you deserve!

      On this tour you will explore the wild and romantic valley of the Bever, a tributary of the Inn. Where the two rivers flow together is the town of the same name, Bever, where the tour begins. First you drive up a wide path to Spinas. This first section is not particularly demanding, which is why you can enjoy the landscape to warm up.In Spinas the Rhaetian Railway disappears in the Albula tunnel and you continue to follow the rushing river. An ideal turning point for the tour is the Alp Suvretta at 2,150 meters. Enjoy the unique view of the snow-capped mountains and the lush green valley.Now you have the choice: If your calves or your battery allow it, you can drive up to the Pass Suvretta at 2,615 meters and up to the Lej Suvretta. Then you come to Sankt Moritz after a slightly more demanding trail. Or you can turn back and enjoy the descent through the Val Bever.If you go back to Bever, you can stop at the Spinas inn. There you can try the delicious Grisons cuisine and enjoy delicious Capuns or Pizzoccheri.
