As a special challenge lures the historic via ferrata Pinut, which also allows inexperienced but sure-footed and vertigo-free climbers the climb to the Flimserstein plateau. Thrill without risk, and a fantastic view of the mountains of Flims.
The historic Via Ferrata Pinut is a fascinating nature experience for the whole family. From Fidaz the via ferrata leads over the Pinut on the Flimserstein. With the necessary respect and the right safety measures, the Via Ferrata Pinut offers thrills without risk. Surefootedness and a sense of heights should, however, be provided in order to be able to fully enjoy the oldest via ferrata in Switzerland - opened in 1907 and renovated in 2007.
Take some coins with you, upstairs you can eat in a self-catering hut with sausage, cheese and bread, drinks. Money must be put in the cash register accordingly.
The trail leads from the Fidaz car park through the Fidaz woods to the climbing ladder at the entrance of the via ferrata, directly below the Flimserstein. The via ferrata leads to Alp Flimserstein. From there we can climb up to the summit of Cassons or down to Bargis.
