Hit the slopes
If you’re looking for somewhere to ski in the winter, Scuol is an obvious choice. The skiing area includes the villages of F’tan and Sent, which covers over 70 km. of family friendly ski pistes – suiting all levels, from beginners to the more seasoned skiers and real professionals.
Whether it’s an easy slope you’re looking for or the more challenging slopes on Mot da Ri, you’ll find it at Scuol. The majority of slopes are located on wide, treeless mountainsides. The valley runs to Ftan and Scuol through a forested area. The 10 km. long Traum slope to Sent is very interesting, but it does require a ride back to Scuol, with the ski bus (10 minutes by foot) or taxi.
For the more accomplished skiers, there are a couple of trails for cross-country skiing. Head up to the 2 km. panorama loop at Motta Naluns or take the 21 km. long path along the river Inn, returning to Scuol by bus. Cross–country tickets can be purchased online or from the tourist office.
There are several sledding options available, but the run from Prui to F’tan is most popular – they even open up the run on Thursday evenings, where the path is only lit by your headlamp. Sleds can be rented.
The entire Unterengadin region, including Scuol, is fascinating – rich with history and archeology to discovery and learn about. The tourist office provides information, from guided tours to cooking and crafting courses.
There are a wide range of hiking paths in the region – perfect for older kids. A popular path is from Motta Naluns above Scuol to F’tan. There are stunning views for you to enjoy – over the inn below and the Engadin Dolomites above.
Depending on fitness levels, you can go on multi-day trips like the Via Engiadina trail, or take advantage of the variety of routes, switching to the other side of the valley and going wherever you want.
The river flows past historic areas, such as Tarasp Castle and forms magical winter scenes made from water, snow and ice.
Swimming and sauna
As well as being a prime location for winter sports, Scuol is known for its mineral water and wellness culture.
Bogn Engadin is located in the heart of the Scuol spa region and features an extensive sauna area and a Roman-Irish bathhouse. It has six pools, including a steam room, a salt-water pool and heated outdoor pool – you can enjoy the warm spring waters, surrounded by snow. At the end of a cold winter’s day, it’s the perfect place to relax and recuperate!
There are plenty of little shops along the main street, if you are looking to buy souvenirs and gifts.
There is on-site public transport available throughout the Engadin Scuol holiday region. So relax, leave your car behind and use the PostBus and the Rhaetian Railway to get around.
Scuol has much to offer in the summer months, being near the Swiss National Park, as well as plenty of hiking paths.
The Flurina (SchallenUrsli’s brother) path is a very popular, especially with families and with kids once the snow has melted.
There are daily prayer services and, of course, special services for Shabbat and Yom Tov. The environment and atmosphere at Scuol is very well-suited to the Orthodox community.
