Roseg Gletscher

Pontresina, Graubünden, 7504, Switzerland

This isolated hotel is only reachable on foot or by horse-drawn carriage/sleigh (it's about 7½ km [4½ miles] up the ruggedly beautiful Roseg Valley), but its location in this untouched valley at the foot of a majestic glacier makes for a unique hiking or relaxing point. The restaurant offers simple regional favorites throughout the year; in fall there's wild game. This is a very popular lunch spot for hikers, bikers, and cross-country skiers, who reward themselves with a selection from the massive dessert buffet. The rooms are spartan but fresh; you pay a little more for a private shower. Children can use the rustic playground.
