This is the light version of the Great Rhine Gorge Round. Beautiful and varied trails in a beautiful gorge along the Rhine. Impressive views of the opposite steep walls of the gorge, can be caught when looking up from the trail. The tour can be sweetened with a stop at the restaurant at station Versam-Safien.

 

Snowline map

While there may already be snow at higher altitudes, the paths in the valley are still snow-free. Our interactive snow depth map will help you plan your tour. Here you can see at a glance at www.flims.com/schneesituation where you can expect snow on the paths and trails and where you can still go without getting cold feet.

Author’s recommendation

Station Versam-Safien offers a cozy stop for refreshments.

Worthwhile variant to walk the Ruinalta gorge.
