Ibex paradise

Around 1,800 ibex can't be wrong: In the mountain world around Pontresina, the Graubünden heraldic animal feels particularly at home. It is not for nothing that one of the largest ibex colonies in the Alps lives on Piz Albris (3,166 m), just outside Pontresina. When the meadows in the valley turn green, but the snow still lies up to the tree line - experience shows that this happens from the end of April to the beginning of June - a phenomenon can be observed in Pontresina like hardly anywhere else. The "king of the Alps" comes down to the edge of the village to feed on the fresh blades of grass. Those who stay in the Engadin mountain village during this period have a good chance to admire the animals at close range. In the Ibex Paradise Pontresina, nature-loving guests are invited to trace these paradisiacal conditions in an entertaining way.
