From the middle of town we walk up to the Catholic Church.
From here we follow the signpost Cristolais - Alp Saluver.
For a short distance the path is paved.
At first through meadows and then through beautiful larch woods, we walk up to Cristolais.
Here there is a Nature House.
We enjoy a magnificent view up and down the Engadin Valley and, in a southeasterly direction, to Pontresina and the Bernina region.
Our hike is particularly beautiful in the month of October.
Now we are in the midst of golden larch country.
It is all around us and continues at the bottom of the valley and on all the mountain slopes, as far as the eye can see.
The larches also look good during May and June, when they are fresh and green. Up above the Nature House - we are still following the signpost to Alp Saluver - the trail goes for a time through the woods.
Then a little later, a comfortable path branches off and leads us in long loops down to Celerina.
Shortly above the railway line, we turn back towards Samedan and follow at first the tracks of the Rhaetian Railway, then cross the tracks and the road, and arrive on the banks of the River Inn.
In a pleasant way, we walk along the riverbank into the village of Samedan or right to the station. equipment
