These pictures are from a six-day hike we did in Switzerland. We hiked 8-10 miles per day while our luggage was transported to the next hotel. The hiking was great although the trails were a bit steeper and rockier (i.e. obstacle courses) than what we have here in Oregon. We left blue summer skies at home to arrive in Switzerland two days before their 2005 flood. But, we got to hike 5 out of the planned 6 days and had a great time!
We used Ryder Walker Alpine Adventures to arrange the trip. They did a great job of finding small hotels in non-tourist towns. The hikes were just the right length and difficulty. We were given good descriptions and maps.
The Engadine Valley is in canton Graubünden in the southeastern portion of Switzerland. The Romansch language is spoken in this part of Switzerland which gives many of the places unusual names.
