Morteratsch Alpine Cheese Dairy

A home from home for foodies

At the alpine cheese dairy in Morteratsch you can watch the cheese maker at work or maybe even lend a hand – it's up to you! The foot of the Morteratsch Glacier is an easy hike away.

The mighty Morteratsch Glacier can be reached in little over an hour on foot. This immense tongue of ice took many thousands of years to form. Good things take time, as the saying goes. The same is true of cheese making. Together with the expert, you can try your hand at the traditional art of cheese making as you enjoy a guided tour of the alpine cheese dairy in Morteratsch. A buffet of fine cheese, Bündnerfleisch air-dried meat, Salsiz smoked sausage and bread will set you up for the return trip.

The journey to Morteratsch itself is a highlight.

Bernina Line

The Bernina Line between St. Moritz and Tirano links northern and southern Europe in a most impressive fashion. For over 100 years now it has been running past mountains, lakes and glaciers down to the palms of Valtellina. The famous panoramic route is a true landmark which has UNESCO World Heritage status.
