Via Bregaglia is a mountain path. The use of correct equipment and clothing is recommended. Guided excursions only on request.

The Swiss - Italian border
In order to cross over the border whether swiss citizen or member of the European community requires a valid document such as an identity card or passport. Citizens from other states should request relevant information from their consulate.

Luggage transport
We recommend the use of a strong travel bag or suitcase with your name tag attached. The transport of a single piece of luggage is included in the package. Any other luggage will be subject to a supplement. The luggage transport from/to Savogno is not possible.

Because parking at hotels is strictly limited please use them only after making an arrangement with the hotel itself. Free parking in Maloja on request with a proper voucher. (these must be completed and placed conspicuously in the car windscreen area).

Packed lunches
The packed lunch you will receive from the hotel each morning contains all lunch requirements (1 drink 0.5 l, 1 sandwich, 1 energetic bar, 1 fruit).
Further food and drink can of course be purchased at the end of any particular stage.

Hotels in Italy
In Italy you must produce an identity card or passport at check-in at hotel or other form of accommodation. In some hotels the document may be retained at reception for the duration of your stay and returned on check-out.

The use of a muzzle is obligatory on public transport in Italy, and in some towns the collection and disposal of excrement is a requirement too.

After any picnic lunch please do not leave any rubbish lying around to ensure that the next hiker along the via Bregaglia enjoys it as much as you. Many thanks!
Grazie mille!
