Bathing lakes in Silvaplana

You can brave the chilly waters of the Upper Engadin’s more famous and large lakes or enjoy swimming and sunbathing at one of the many smaller and shallower and therefore warmer mountain lakes.

Nestled in a small forest above Surlej between St. Moritz and Champfèr, Lej Marsch and Lej Nair are easily accessible; either take a leisurely walk or go by bike or E-bike. It’s well equipped with BBQ areas, picnic tables, toilets and sunbathing lawns. The lake even boasts a sandy beach and a wooden dock to dive into the refreshing water from. Just 10 minutes by foot above Lej Marsch, the mystical black waters of Lej Nair are a great place to go for those looking for more peace and quiet.
