The Morteratsch Glacier path, on the trail of Sabi


There are 16 puzzles to be solved along the Morteratsch Glacier to discover Sabi’s great dream and find out all about the retreat of the glacier and its mysterious past life. This is an exciting adventure awaiting families in a true world of ice at Pontresina.
Sabi is a mountain spirit who lives in the Morteratsch Glacier. His job is to guard all the secrets of Bernina’s ancient glaciers and he does his job extremely well. However, Sabi has a secret too.

The aim of the trail is for the children to discover Sabi's story. This treasure hunt gives children the chance to play with their parents in the great outdoors. To do this they get a book with the story of Sabi in it and tasks to perform. They complete these tasks along the hike that leads them to the Morteratsch Glacier.

The information points have stamps to collect in the booklet. At the end of the round trip when all the stamps have been collected, the children present their booklet with the solution at the Pontresina tourist office and receive a little surprise.
