Via Bregaglia

Via Bregaglia - Nature, villages und culture


The Via Bregaglia leads as a path through the Bregaglia valley. From the alpine Maloja at 1800 m.a.s.l. to the mediterranean Chiavenna at 333 m.a.s.l. Fascinating to observe how climate, smells and plants change along the way. About halfway, near Promontogno, there is a hill across the valley, which the locals call “Porta”, the gate. Above “sopraporta” there are spruces, larches & birches, it is rougher and sometimes there is still snow in March. Below “sottoporta”, there is a mild climate, also the first palm trees can be found. On the Via Bregaglia you can always choose which direction to take and which section to walk.

The Via Bregaglia leads across the small villages: the paths between them are partly old roads, partly pretty and easy hiking trails. Along the way, there are museums to visit (especially in Stampa, but also in Vicosoprano) and many places to stop for refreshments. (Note: some restaurants and hotels are closed in low or mid-season, and shops are not always open). It is also practical that the post bus line 4 runs trough the valley, so you can always interrupt or shorten the hike.



Walk without worries along the Via Bregaglia!

Bookable as package from June to the end of September with at least two weeks notice.
