spectacular landscapes and a ride through all three language regions of Graubünden await you.
After Riein, you’ll pass the ban on motorised vehicles and a narrow asphalt road leads you to Cuolm (1,550m above sea level) and Ober Dutjen. The idyllic landscape makes you forget all the hardships and the fast descent to Valendas (810m above sea level) with excellent views of the Rhine Valley is a pure reward. From Versam, a spectacular road leads through the Ruinaulta. The Rheinschucht (Rhine gorge), with its 300-meter high rock walls and rock formations also called "Little Swiss Canyon" ascends to Versam, before you are treated to a fast descent with fantastic hairpin bends. Over the bridge at the end of the descent, you’ll reach a short incline. You can anticipate rocky tunnels and a fantastic panoramic road. Take a little rest to enjoy the view of the gorge. The route will lead you to Bonaduz (662m above sea level) and Reichenau, where the Anterior and Posterior Rhine flow together and further back to Chur (593m above sea level).
