Full description

You will leave from Tirano, an ancient Italian town known for its Renaissance Basilica and its 18th-century palaces, churches and gates. Tirano is also famous for the excellent red wines made from Nebbiolo grapes, and culinary specialities like pizzoccheri, bresaola and alpine cheeses.  You will board the Bernina Red Train in Tirano, climb the Swiss Valposchiavo Valley and start the descent into the Engadin Valley until you reach Diavolezza station, where you'll take the cable car up to Diavolezza Refuge (3000 meters), also called the "Ballroom of the Alps".  Here you'll to enjoy the stunning view on the Piz Bernina and have free time to enjoy a drink or lunch at the refuge. On your way back to Tirano, where the experience ends, you can make a stop in the village of Poschiavo to take a stroll along the Poschiavo Lake.

It was a huge experience with the Bernina Express, especially when we tried both new and old trains as well as the panoramic train! The glacier was amazing - really worth a visit! However, you can easily order a ticket for both the train and the cable car at the location.

A pure moment of magic. Departure from Tirano with good weather, magnificent climb in the wild and agricultural landscapes of any beauty. Arrival at the cable car station then at the magical Diavolezza refuge. The choice of this magical day during the week, excluding holidays is a winning choice. Thank you and to renew to come back to ski
