Through the Grand Canyon of Switzerland. During this hike, we will be rewarded with a spectacular view of the Rhine Gorge from the viewing platform "Il Spir".
Distance 19.9 km
From Staderas, the route leads to Prau La Selva, through the large forest marked by the Flims landslide, past Lake Cauma to Conn, where we can enjoy an overwhelming view of the Rhine canyon at the viewing platform Il Spir. Then it's on a historic path via Pintrun to Ransun. At Ransun, there is the opportunity for a breather at the new fireplace. Then a steep descent begins in the Rhine Gorge, to the bridge of the Rhaetian Railway over the Rhine. Over this railway bridge we reach the Chrummwag, a peninsula, which is surrounded by the Rhine. There's a fire pit in a pretty clearing on this peninsula, just right for a picnic. Here we have views of bizarre and imposing rock formations. It continues through the wild and romantic Rhine gorge and a remarkable floodplain forest to the station Versam-Safien and to the railway station Valendas-Sagogn. After crossing the bridge over the Rhine and the Ual da Mulin and a short climb, we reach Planezzas, turning left. From there the trail leads via Salums to the starting point of Staderas.
Pack barbecue items - there are various barbecue areas lying fantastically on the Rhein.
