Colourful variety of rocks in Valendas
Show all 5 images
The Vorderrhein with its tributaries is the lifeline of the Surselva. On its shores, it deposits souvenirs of its journey through a diverse catchment area. These round and angular rocks in bright colors tell the eventful history of the earth over the past 300 million years. Volcanism, marine sediments, ceiling overthrusts, hot climate and ice ages can be seen from this.
You start the hike in the gorge of the Flims landslide, let yourself be cooled by fine breezes along the floodplains and enter a dune-like landscape. The route is located in the vicinity of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Tectonic Arena Sardona.
In Ilanz, a visit to the exhibition «Schichtwechsel – La Surselva», a combination of nature and culture, artistically designed and stimulating for the enjoyment of diversity in the Surselva, concludes.
