Silvaplana is located in the heart of the Upper Engadine lake landscape, surrounded by impressive three-thousand-meter peaks such as the local mountain Corvatsch with the highest panorama restaurant at 3303 m above sea level.
The Engadin hiking trails consist of about 500 kilometers of marked trails. They lead along the lakes and follow the "Via Engiadina" or go into the nearby valleys. The versatility of the spring season in the mountains makes Silvaplana and the local mountain Corvatsch a popular hiking region. Ambitious mountaineers will find challenging routes to Piz Surlej or Piz Julier. Families are best off following the "Marmottins" to the most beautiful vantage points around Silvaplana.
