The Bregaglia valley offers a good variety of hiking trails. Be prepared that most of them are rather strenuous and require the hiker to be in good shape, though. Elevation differences add up quickly as the slopes of the valley are steep and mountains/passes are on the higher side.

One highly recommended hike is the so called "Sentiero Panoramico" - the name says it all: Panoramic views (almost) all the time. The trail starts up on the Maloja pass (1815 m), zig-zags down to Casaccia (1458 m), from there follows the northern (right) side of the valley. Casaccia is actually a good starting point, from there it takes about 5 to 6 hours to Soglio, where the trail ends. There is only one simple restaurant (snack place) along the way, in Durbegia after 2/3 of the hike.

Highlights are the views shortly after passing the hamlet Roticcio (Vicosoprano below on the valley floor and the massive peaks on the other side of the valley with the dam of Albigna lake) and finally the arrival in Soglio.

Apologies for the crappy quality of the pics, I did the hike far back in the 1990s and the camera gave up shortly after.

Equipment: Good hiking boots, food, definitely lots of water or so to drink, sun screen - it can get VERY hot at the south-facing slopes.

Theme: Hiking
