Flims and its surroundings are a must for all nature lovers. The Flims landslide shaped not just the sunny plateau, but also the rugged Rhine Gorge as well as the crystal-clear bathing lakes of Cauma, Cresta and Laax. 

The Flims waterway hike (Romansh: Trutg dil Flem) runs from the waterfall in the lower Segnesboden right to the centre of the village. At times it leads the hiker directly along the river course through the narrow gorge landscapes across unique bridges, past waterfalls, water mills and water slides. At others, it takes you along the upper slopes of the stream’s course, along delightful alpine landscapes and mountain pastures dotted with huts.

The Flem is crossed a total of six times by in part audaciously designed bridges. They provide the perfect vantage point for taking in the bizarre rock formations that make up the Flem gorges. Finally you reach two platforms close to the valley station, the perfect spot for hikers to listen once again to the symphony of water music.
