The Rhine Gorge - a tour through the Swiss Grand Canyon
The river Rhine has made its way through the limestone between the villages of Ilanz and Reichenau. Therefore, a canyon that is hundreds of meters deep has developed: the Rhine Canyon Ruinaulta also called the Swiss Grand Canyon. There are steep limestone cliffs and extraordinary, imposing rock formations on the sidewalls of the canyon. A hike through or along the Rhine Canyon is a must for every visitor to the Alpenarena; you can also take the Rhaetian Railways and enjoy the view from the train.
