“Great hiking on and around this glacier”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

We hiked to Boval Refuge alongside the glacier to join the 100th
anniversary party (and what a celebration). Views are stupendous, Rosti was fabulous, and the beers were both large and cold! from there we hiked down and across to Diavolezza Refuge for more amazing views.

“Quite a sight”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

Imagine deep blue coloured ice surronding you in a snow white valley ! What else ? Your one opportunity to touch a glacier (unless you travel often to the Poles...)

“Morteratsch Glacier”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

this is a wonderful hike to take if you have a couple of hours. A quick train ride from Pontresina puts to at the trail head and a easy wide trail takes you past signs showing how far and how quickly the glacier has receded. A smack in the face of reality about global warming
