Black Ice


Black ice is a fascinating natural spectacle that can be observed with a bit of luck, for example, on the Lej Suot near Silvaplana. For this, bone-chilling cold and snow-free winter days have to meet perfectly. We show you the most beautiful black ice moments in the picture gallery below.

But beware: it is possible that the ice is not frozen throughout and it has holes. Therefore, entering the ice is at your own risk. Before entering the ice, first inform yourself on site about the current conditions.

Full moon ice skating 

In winter 19/20, the Lej Suot near Silvaplana even invited to ice skating under full moon. Skating at night on black ice, which crackles mysteriously under the blades, was an unforgettable experience. We show you the best moments from full moon ice skating.
