The resort of Flumserberg forms a terrace stretching from 1000 m to 1400 m above the Walensee and the valley town of Flums. The ski region reaches 2222 m. By the end of the 19th century, this area had already been discovered as a centre for whey cures and its unspoilt natural beauty inspired Johanna Spyri to write her Heidi stories more than a hundred years ago.
Today this is an excellent family-oriented resort.
This holiday region is also criss-crossed by a dense 150-km network of hiking and cycle paths. Also on offer are cycle tours of every level of difficulty; fishing in mountain streams/lake; and paragliding. The delightful six-hour “Seven Peaks Tour” is a perfectly safe ridge walk with magnificent panoramic views of more than 150 peaks in the St. Gallen, Grisons, Glarus and interior Swiss Alps.
The Walensee, with its many facilities for water sports, is just 20 minutes away by car. Anything is possible there, from diving to stand-up-paddling, canoeing, sailing and surfing.
The winter sports region of Flumserberg guarantees plenty of snow and is the biggest winter sports destination between Zurich and Chur with pistes of all levels of difficulty. For snowboarders there are fun parks and a half-pipe; and for cross country skiers the Prodalp has 18 km of cross-country trails. Children become familiar with snow sports in two children’s parks. Cosy mountain snack bars ensure a variety of culinary delights.
Those who want to discover something new can get an introduction to the world of sled dogs in Flumserberg. From the harnessing and unharnessing of this breed of Husky dogs, through to professional guidance and silent rides as you glide through the snowy winter landscape. An unforgettable experience for dog lovers, nicely rounded up with warming mulled wine.
