The region around the Swiss National Park is an E-MTB paradise. The terrain is neither too steep nor too flat – and therefore ideal for riding the local passes, valleys and single trails.

The E-MTB tour leads from Scuol via Val Müstair to Livigno (IT), and from there over the Bernina Pass into the Upper Engadine to Zuoz and back to Scuol. Bikers ride on flowing trails and experience bike highlights such as the Pass da Costainas, Val Mora, Passo Alpisella and Ospizio Bernina. The respective routes are between 50 and 60 km long. Note: Dogs are not allowed in the Swiss National Park, not even on a leash.

Guten Abend Herr Zwahlen Die Nationalpark Tour ist gut machbar,keine grösseren schwierigkeiten,einzig die Route vom Berninapass runter ist eine steinige Single Traile Route,man könnte aber jederzeit auf die Strasse ausweichen. Die E-Bike Nationalpark Tour ist nur zu empfehlen,einfach wunderschön. Ich hoffe das ich Ihnen helfen konnte und wünsche ihnen fals sie sich dazu entscheiden,eine ganz tolle Biketour. Mit freundlichen Grüssen Astrid Bärtsch
