Sommer Rheinschlucht

The Ruinaulta in Graubünden is one of the most magnificent and diverse landscapes in the Alps. The natural monument with a raging river, white cliffs and vast forests is also known as the Grand Canyon of Switzerland.


What began as the Flims landslide has become a unique backdrop for the Rhine. Between Ilanz and Reinchenau a 10,000 year old path has been carved by the Rhine, forming an unforgettable rock formation. This area is called the Swiss Grand Canyon, and is admired by train passengers, hikers, bikers, kayakers, and river rafters from around the world.


The result is a gorge of fascinating beauty and unique biodiversity.

On the left bank of the Vorderrhein, you travel via Bonaduz along the spectacular gorge to Versam and the viewpoint high above the gorge. The bizarre rock formations are impressive.
