This hike starts at the cable cars in Flims and first goes through the historic Flims. At the waste yard in Flims we will go directly to the Flimser foresr. In this section, where the fox and the rabbit say goodnight, there are many cottage, which are now snowed in by the snow. On the left side you can see the imposing Flimserstein up to the pearl, the lake Cresta. The lake Cresta looks quite magical in the winter surrounded by the white trees.

Author’s recommendation

In the restaurant Crestasee stop and enjoy the view.
