Senda Ruinaulta: The Swiss Rhine Gorge Route

The view down into the depths is dizzyingly beautiful! The Vorderrhein has eaten 400 metres into the limestone cliffs of the Ruinaulta. Accompanied by the Rhaetian Railway, it winds its picturesque way through the canyon - this part of the route is particularly spectacular. The lookout platform "Il Spir" offers an impressive bird's eye view. The best way to get there is along the Senda Ruinaulta, an easy hike brimming with temptations.

Top class cuisine and spectacular landscapes - the road to the "Grand Canyon" of Switzerland is a pleasure in every respect.
