The snowshoe-trail starts at Plaun mountain station and leads you over a beautiful high plateau in the midlle of the skiing area Flims Laax Falera. Plaun mountain station can be reached by the mountain railways (Arena Express) from Flims valley station. The trail further leads you through a magical winter forest down to Runcahöhe. From there, you reach Flims valley station comfortably followin a well-signed winter hike trail (depending on snow conditions, also accessible by snowshoes)

It is a simple snowshoe-tour. The 3.5 km-long route will take you roughly an hour.
