10 of the Best Hikes in Flims Laax Falera

For natural wonders, extensive trail networks, and knockout views, choose Flims Laax Falera.

Description

It’s no secret that Switzerland, the land of mountains, is one of the best places in the world for hiking. Out of all of its 26 cantons, Graubünden is perhaps the greatest spot of them all for dramatic alpine vistas and high altitude hiking trails.

The area of Flims Laax Falera, one of Graubünden’s most popular ski areas in winter, transforms into a hiker’s paradise in the summer, attracting visitors with its array of unusual natural phenomena. First up, it has the Rhine gorge, which has been aptly nicknamed "the Swiss Grand Canyon" due to its craggy rock formations and wild rapids. There is also the sparkling turquoise Lake Cuma, an unusually warm alpine lake, which appears like a drop of the Mediterranean in Central Europe. There is also one of the largest wooded areas in Graubünden, the Flimser Grosswald, a sprawling expanse of spruce, silver fir, beech, and pine trees.

Over 250 kilometres of hiking trails lace in and around the natural wonders of the Flims Laax Falera area. This selection of ten hikes has something for everyone. If you need a pushchair-friendly hike, go for "Elevated Hike Foppa - Scheia - Fidaz - Flims." But if you want a serious challenge, check out one of the two Senda Sursilvana stages included in this guidebook.
