Journey to the mountains

The cable car departs from Bernina-Diavolezza, already at an altitude of 2,093m, and transports you to the glacier and the Diavolezza station at 2,978m. The cable car runs all day and departs every 20 minutes. Enjoy the fabulous views as you travel ever upwards.  


Just steps from the cable car you will find the Bellavista panorama restaurant. There are all kinds of delicious dishes with regional recipes from Graubünden and a stunning alpine view through the huge windows. The restaurant also has a lovely terrace with plenty of outdoor seating. There is even a Jacuzzi where you can enjoy amazing glacier views from the 41° bubbling water (payable locally).

Alternatively, you could take the 40 minute walk to Europe's highest barbecue site at 3,066m! You can bring your own picnic, or pre-book (locally) a 'Magical Fire above the Clouds' package including wood and firelighters, a selection of meats, sauces, salads, bread, dessert and fruit.


There are many challenging walks in the Diavolezza region, including two Via Ferratas.

A more manageable 2½ hour walk leads from Diavolezza to Munt Pers and offers fantastic views across the glacier and the Piz Bernina (at 4,049m the highest mountain in the Eastern Alps). You may like to try the 40 minute walk to Sass Queder, with its uninterrupted view to the south of the impressive Bernina Massif, or the 3½ hour trail to Lej da las Collinas. The moorland area between the Collinas and Pers lakes is home to rare species of plants and animals; the return route to the Diavolezza valley station takes you past beautiful Alpine rose bushes and you may see a chamois.


You can take the bus or train from the resorts of St. Moritz and Pontresina up to the Bernina-Diavolezza station. This is where the cable car departs to transport you to the summit station of Diavolezza and a true alpine world.

Please check before travel for maintenance closures.
