Across the Swiss Alps: Klosters to Tirano

Cross the Swiss Alps on this moderate inn to inn walk, from the ski town of Klosters to the historic village of Tirano. Combine two of the top Swiss long-distance hiking trails, the Via Valtellina and Via Albula, with a memorable train journey on the Bernina Bahn. Hike from mountain pass to mountain pass, taking in the scenery and serenity of the traditional Alpine towns and villages along the way. Experience a night in the traditional mountain hotel, Alpe Grüm, where you can soak in views of the Piz Palü mountain and its glacier.
