The Rhine Gorge in Graubünden is one of the most majestic and diverse landscapes in the Alps. The wild gorge combines roaring rapids with steep white cliffs and expansive woodlands.

Whoever can complete the round tour in a single day from Ilanz, over Sagogn, Flims, Trin to Tamins and back to Ilanz via Bonaduz, Versam and Valendas, can count him or herself a biking-ace. However, for those who enjoy the scenery, it is recommended to do this tour in daily stages. The first pleasure is a choice of three bathing lakes: Laaxersee, Caumasee and the Crestasee. Further on are three different viewing-platforms over the unique landscape of Sardona - which is also a UNESCO world heritage site. A worthwhile detour from Versam into the Safiental is rewarded with a glimpse of delightful old Walser hamlets. There are many places to stay along the biking-route, from camping to five-star resorts.
