The Flims Laax Falera ski area, in the canton of Graubünden, is situated on a sunny plateau, high above the Rhine gorge. Each of the three villages has a lot to offer holidaymakers looking for different types of holiday.
Flims offers a large network of hiking and cross-country skiing trails for walkers, winter hikers and cross-country skiers, as well as numerous wellness hotels. With its many patrician houses, Falera has preserved the charm of a Graubünden mountain village. This, and the quiet, sunny location serve to make it a village for relaxing family holidays. Laax in particular attracts snowboarders from throughout the world to its pistes and parks, and has hosted several exciting snowboarding events in recent years.
The highest point in the ski region – the Vorab glacier – reaches a height of 3018 m. In addition to Alpine skiing, snowboarding and carving, guests with a passion for sports can enjoy cross-country skiing, curling, winter hiking and paragliding.
Thanks to the professional Snowboard Freestyle Academy, a host of different snowboarding events, special freeride areas reserved for snowboarders, the halfpipe and the fun park around the regional Crap Sogn Gion mountain, this holiday destination has become the Mecca for snowboarders. The countless après-ski activities, parties, bars, concerts and innovative hotels serve to attract many younger guests to the region around Laax.
Over 230 kilometres of mountain bike trails and over 250 kilometres of hiking trails lead to countless panoramic lookouts offering views across the Graubünden mountainscape.
Tennis, badminton and golf as well as themed walking trails, mountain meadows and bathing and moorland lakes offer varied and fascinating holidays for the entire family. The ‘Flimser Grosswald’ is one of the largest wooded areas in Graubünden, a must for all nature enthusiasts. The Rhine gorge, which is also known as the ‘Swiss Grand Canyon’, fascinates hikers and river rafters from throughout the world. The Caumasee with its turquoise-green waters and picturesque bays is reminiscent of a beach along the Mediterranean.
