|Excursions from St Moritz, Switzerland|
|Using St Moritz as your base you can easily visit the nearby Engadin Valley towns of Silvaplana, Pontresina, Diavolezza, the Swiss National Park, and more.|
St Moritz is located in the broad, long Engadin Valley (map) extending from Bever and Samedan to St Moritz, then through Champfèr, Suvretta, Silvaplana and Sils to the Maloja Pass (1786 m/5955 ft); and from Punt Muragl through Pontresina to Morteratsch and the Bernina Pass (2286 m/7621 ft). Every town in the valley has a special beauty or attraction.
An unspoiled Swiss mountain village on the shores of Lake Silvaplana, near Lake Champfèr, just 6 km/4 mi southwest of St Moritz.
Noted as a ski center, it is also the place to board the Muottas Muragl funicular that takes you from the valley floor to an altitude of 2414 m/8048 ft) for spectacular views.
Perhaps the most dramatic views in the region from a 2978-m/9770-ft alpine peak reachable by road or cablecar.
