ÖTILLÖ SWIMRUN ENGADIN – A PEARL IN A STRING OF PEARLS
When you travel to ÖTILLÖ Swimrun Engadin you have the opportunity to fill several days with lots of different adventures. The races are also at a little bit of altitude and it is always better to acclimate a bit before a big effort. If you make the trip you might as well make the most of it. Check out the Instagram of racers Marika Wagner and Ulrika Eriksson from early July 2021 to see how much value they added to their trip last year.
Acclimating to altitude / suggestions for extension of stay
The Engadin has a special ability: it makes alpine dreams come true. No matter what kind. In summer especially, the possibilities are endless: mountain biking, hiking, climbing, via ferrata.
Hikes are a smart way to acclimate to higher altitude while making use of cable car facilities to not over-stress the legs on the downhill.
Travelling with family prior, during or after the event
Ideas for holidays with both young and slightly older children. The Engadin is one big adventure playground where parents, too, can look forward to a complete break at specially recommended family destinations.
Since forever, visitors to the Engadin have refreshed their tired feet in the region’s bubbling mineral springs. Over the years, this tradition has evolved to give rise to a wide range of wellness facilities and therapies that offer the perfect remedy for any need.
The people of Engadin also have a savory side and produce a wonderful local Engadin sausage, alpine cheese full of character and the world-famous Bündnerfleisch – Graubünden air-dried meat.
Public transport in Switzerland is not only reliable but also follows some truly magical travel routes.
