Hiking in Val Poschiavo - a World of Discovery and Adventure!
...between legend and nature
Val Poschiavo is the southernmost of 150 valleys of the canton of Graubünden. Right next to the italien border it offers one of the most diverse landscapes of Switzerland. Our forests and alpine pastures are maintained with passion.
Numerous hiking trails lead through the beautiful countryside, passing along breath taking beautiful natural views, cultural monuments, churches and other mountain hostels such as San Romerio.
Old Smugglers Trail
Hiking on the old smugglers trail (Sentiro dei Contrabbandieri) you can reach the Italian village of Baruffini, a typical village of the Veltlin region. Until the 1970s smugglers were transporting coffee and cigarettes from Switzerland to the Italian Valtellina on this route.
Through vineyards and fruit orchards, the trail leads down into the town of Tirano.
Guided Tour to the Eagle's Nest
In Puschlav there are two eagle couples each occupying several nests. They change the location several times a year depending on the available food.
Two eagle nests are within the vicinity of San Romerio, one above, one below our alp. The distance to be traveled is about 45 minutes. In summer, the Eagles have (depending on the food stock) offspring.
Please contact us if interested, Gino Bongulielmi will happily be your guide.
