Crossing boundaries

Testa Grigia / Plateau Rosa


On Testa Grigia you literally cross the boundary – the borderline separating Switzerland from Italy is right here. A wonderful vista opens up across the glacier and the Alpine landscape the two countries share. It’s worth a visit to take a souvenir photo with one foot in Switzerland and the other in Italy or enjoy your first taste of snow sports at the SnowXperience activity park. Adventures are guaranteed here.
