Walk on a glacier
Walking on a glacier and experiencing this world of ice up close requires expertise. For that reason, it should really only be attempted by people who have lots of experience of hiking in the high Alps. But if you aren’t such an expert, don’t worry: “average” hikers can go onto the two glaciers and into the valley safely under the guidance of the Bergsteigerschule Pontresina (mountaineering school).
The glaciers and climate change
The VR Glacier Experience visitor centre at the Diavolezza valley station explores climate change using the Morteratsch Glacier as an example. There are four virtual tours that cover the water resources in and around the Morteratsch Glacier, the water balance, the flora and fauna, and the MortAlive project, which aims to slow the retreat of the glacier by artificially adding snow. Entry is free of charge.
