Badrutt's Moments: elegance and class
May. 15th, 2017
ROADMAP TO CLOUD NINE
Breathtaking ravines. A panorama to ponder and dream. Perfect selfie moments.
End stop Badrutt’s Palace Hotel. Or starting point for a day trip. No matter how, the passes are compelling:
Albula Pass, 2,312 metres above sea level.
From St. Moritz the route heads in the direction of La Punt. It starts above the picturesque Alpine village. The Albula Pass. It connects the Albula valley with the Engadin. A summer drive guarantees wonderful views. Including the undisturbed wild, natural beauty of the Albula ravine. The blue-green oasis en route towards Albula/ Alva. From here head up over the Julier Pass and back to St. Moritz.
Maloja Pass, 1,815 metres above sea level.
A route of contrasts. From St. Moritz head via Silvaplana then flat along the Engadin lakes towards Maloja. It really gets going right behind Maloja. The super curvy Maloja Pass. And the view opens up right from the start. Stunning mountain scenery. The pass connects the Engadin with Bergell and Soglio after climbing 400 metres. And finally leads to the Italian Mediterranean town of Chiavenna. Where palm trees line the streets.
Bernina Pass, 2,328 metres above sea level.
From St. Moritz head through Pontresina in the direction of the Bernina Pass. Here there are deep ravines and impressive cliff faces. It’s worth stopping off. To take the cable car up the Diavolezza. The view of the Morteratsch glacier and the valley is one of a kind. The Bernina Pass connects the Engadin with the Puschlav and Veltlin valleys. Lago Bianco. One of the reservoirs filled with glacial water. Located south of the pass and another gem on the tour.
Back in Badrutt’s Palace Hotel a whole host of delights awaits. Not only pampering yourself. After your fifth night in a Grand Deluxe Room, or higher room category, your car will be parked in the front row of the garage. For free. And with the car care package it gets polished to a glistening shine. All inclusive of course.
