The chairlift takes you up to Foppa and from there you can enjoy the high-altitude hike to Fidaz and back to Flims, with fantastic views of the valley and the mountains.
The starting point is the mountain railway Flims Dorf from where you can take the chairlift to Foppa. The pleasure hike leads along a sunny slope, with a wonderful view of the villages in the valley, the Flims forest and the Grisons mountains. Over glittering meadows, past Maiensässhütten, through spruce forest, the easy hiking trail leads to the hamlet of Scheia and to Fidaz. From Foppa to Flims there are various possibilities to stop in mountain huts and restaurants. From Fidaz you can take the road back to Flims village or use the local bus.
With the chair lift we reach Foppa, the starting point of the winter hike. On forest trails it goes from there to Spaligna and continue along the trail to Scheia. In Scheia there is the possibility to buy from various organic farmers. Then we continue to Fidaz, past the restaurant, and down to Flims.
