The name of the village, Gletsch, says it all: it is clearly a place near a glacier. And indeed, that was once the case.
Way above Flims, probably the best vantage point for views over the region and afar is the Cassonsgrat or Fil de Cassons. From Flims Dorf a chairlift and cable cars offer comfortable rides up.
The Sareis mountain ridge lies 400 meters above the village, with a chairlift taking you there to where a mountain restaurant and scenic hikes into Liechtenstein country attract outdoor lovers.
