Hint

Intro

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

Description

It all began 10,000 years ago. Between the Flimserstein (a high plateau) and Piz Grisch over 10,000 million cubic metres of rock broke off and thundered down into the valley. Towards Reichenauhe the Upper Rhine Valley disappears under a gigantic mass of debris. From there the Rhine got to work, eating greedily through the rock and creating the spectacular Swiss "Grand Canyon" - the Ruinaulta.

From Laax a pleasant hike leads to the 12.5 metre high observation platform "Il Spir", meaning "swift" (the bird). This is a most appropriate name, for "Il Spir" hovers over the Vorderrhein 400 metres below and provides a breathtaking bird's eye view into the gorge.

The trail starts at the sports centre Prau la Selva in Laax. An easy walk leads past Lag Tuleritg, the lake that subterraneously supplies the slightly lower lying Lake Cauma with water, through the enchanting mountain forests of Flims-Laax-Falera. With its turquoise colours and idyllic inlets, Lake Cauma quickly gives you a Mediterranean feeling and obviously lives up to its reputation as being one of the most popular bathing lakes.

Restaurant Conn serves local delicacies such as the speciality of the house, the Trinser Birnenravioli (Trins pear ravioli).

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
