Skatelines – skidding on a fine line through the winter forest

Ice skating through a romantic winter forest? Skidding through a fairy tale of snow and ice while gliding on prepared ice trails? The skatelines Albula and Engadin make it possible.

The Quickest Footpaths in The World

No slow shuffling on this footpath! These are arguable three of the most beautiful ice rinks on earth and certainly the only ice ‚trails‘. The ice paths in Albula and Engadin are unique and spectacular. The so called «Skatelines» run through the winter forest and guarantees thrills as well as sights. The trails, which  are open (weather permitting) from the middle of December till the end of February, offers even seasoned ice professionals completely new perspectives.

The inspiration for the ice paths came, as it so often does in Graubünden, from nature. Even the residents lent a hand in the end. The shaded forest paths, over which the ice rink runs, was as smooth as glass in the winter months due to the spray of the neary creek.
