Switzerland's Wilderness



A rugged yet beautiful landscape in the heart of Europe formed by water, ice and rocks. A valley hidden deep within the Swiss Alps.

The Engadin is one of Switzerland’s best-kept secrets. A valley shaped by the River Inn and guarded by mountains on all sides. 

Gigantic glaciers straddle the peaks, the enormous force of the flowing ice constantly carving out new paths. This is also the country of Heidi, the world´s most famous shepherd girl. But who would expect serenity and peace in this rugged landscape?

This barren wilderness is a last refuge for many alpine specialists. The Engadin safeguards the future of some of Europe’s most iconic animals.

But efforts to reintroduce the lynx and the bearded vulture to Engadin show that protection alone is not enough.
