From June to October St. Moritz certainly has lots to offer: from goat-themed yoga sessions in the Alps to the 125th anniversary of Switzerland’s oldest golf club, international events such as the Tavolata food festival, a Festival da Jazz and culinary offers throughout the region.
Goat-themed yoga on alpine meadows
The “Mini Geiss – Dini Geiss” offer consists of a wide variety of treks in the Alps in the company of five Engadin goats and their owner. The treks include a stop at the alpine dairy near the Morteratsch Glacier and a visit to an authentic original alpine hut. The goat-themed yoga sessions coached by Engadin yogis are certain to provide inspiring moments in the heart of the delightful Engadin landscape. Goat adoption and sponsorship schemes are also available.
125 larch trees for 125 years of the Engadine Golf Club
In 2018 the Engadine Golf Club, Switzerland’s oldest golf club, celebrates its 125th anniversary. Located at 1,700 metres above sea level the golf course in Samedan has, in the past, been played by the likes of Sean Connery and the Duke of Windsor. As part of the anniversary year 125 larch trees have been planted as a sustainability project. The anniversary will be celebrated on 1 August 2018, the Swiss National Holiday, with a mixed foursome tournament, an exhibition at the Design Gallery St. Moritz, and a historic walk.
