This part of Silvaplana lies between Lake Champfèr and Lake Silvaplana. From here you can take the cable car directly to the Corvatsch ski area. You can also enjoy water sports on the lakes in the area.
Near Surlej, in beautiful natural surroundings, there is a waterfall that is well worth seeing. Its history is quite interesting: Surlej was almost destroyed by floods in 1793 and 1868. In 1873, a dam was finally built above Surlej. The Ova da Surlej was then diverted into Lake Silvaplana. The waterfall was created and the floods were now a thing of the past.
From the quiet, tranquil Surlej you can easily get to the neighbouring villages, e.g. St. Moritz, Pontresina, Maloja and Samedan, by public transport. If you don't feel like driving, then take a walk through the nature around Surlej and enjoy the landscape as well as the view of the heavenly mountain scenery.
