Program

After a thorough briefing and instruction about the snowmobile, the driving techniques, and safety in general, you start the tour at about 1600 meters above sea level. Soon after, a steep climb leads you to Alp Andossi which is inhabited only in summer. From there on, following a mountain crest, you ascend to Cava where you’ll enjoy fantastic panoramic views. Climbing even further on an old mining road, you reach Lago Nero at 2300 meters above sea level. After a steep drop of roughly 400 meters, your curvy road winds down to Lake Monte Spluga.

Following the lake shoreline, you leave behind the deserted village of Monte Spluga and go up all the way to the top of Splügen pass, partly using the official (but for regular traffic closed) mountain pass road with its innumerable curves. Here, at the Italien-Swiss border, you take a well-deserved break and drive back to HB Adventure Switzerland's base in Madesimo. Depending on group size and driving experience / style, the tour lasts about two hours.

Location

Bergell

Known for its characteristic mountain peaks, rock formations, and its unspoiled, beautiful landscapes, the Bergell is also rich in history and culture and is ideal for hiking (for example on famous trails such as the “Panoramic” or the "Sentiero Storico“. Paying a visit to the Bergell brings you to where many artists live and have lived, most famous among them the “Giacometti” family. Their great art can be admired at the Museum of Stampa. Maloja is the first village of the Bergell. The valley itself extends over 40 kilometers until the border with Italy in Castasegna, and it is home to only 1200 people who live spread out in seven small communities.

The most famous Bergell village: Soglio, 1100 meters (3700 feet) above sea level

This old, picturesque village is located on a sunny terrace-like slope above the valley and offers great views on the Bondasca. Towering high above the humble farmhouses are the luxurious villas and palazzi of the well-known Salis-Soglio family. Cà Aelta, Casa Battista (nowadays Hotel Palazzo Salis), Casa Antonio, Casa Gubert, and the Palazzo Max all give an idea of how the noble people used to reside. Soglio is the perfect vacation spot for the seeker of tranquility and silence as well as untouched natural beauty.

A number of spectacular hiking paths lead through extensive Chestnut forests where locals bring in their harvest in autumn. It’s the time when the so-called “cascine” (the traditional chestnut smoking chimneys) release their bluish fumes which then somewhat mystically well up between the tall and strong trees in the peak of their foliage colors. That is why Segantini used to say: "Soglio, la soglia del Paradiso." (Soglio, the only one Paradise). Soglio, a pristine alpine little village, is located about 45 minutes east of Silvaplana, about 45 minutes’ drive from St. Moritz direction Chiavenna. From Soglio, it's only 45 minutes to HB Adventure Switzerland's snowmobile camp in Madesimo.

Madesimo

Madesimo is a prime location when it comes to risky winter sports. On the steep slopes of the Pizzo Groppera or the narrow terrace of the Alpe Motta, daring downhill skiers put their skills to the test. On the other hand, those who prefer deep, untouched powdery snow will be pleased to delve into the slopes of the Val di Lei. A rather sophisticated network of ski lifts and rides directly connects all slopes and runs to the village of Madesimo, and, by an additional cable car, also to the village of Campodolcino. A total of 70 kilometers (44 miles) of tracks slopes and ski runs up to altitudes of 3000 meters (9800 feet) above sea level are available to the visitors.

Snowmobiling in Madesimo is unique in the Alps, over 70 kilometers (44 miles) of tracks and routes outside the skiing areas are available. Starting in Madesimo, they extend high up into alpine zones.
