The diversity of water sports available in Graubünden is immense: be it river rafting on the Rhine Gorge, fishing amongst the alpine scenery, Canyoning in the Viamala Gorge or in the gorges of S-chanf. Surprisingly the Upper Engadine lakes are a hot spot for sailing, windsurfing and kite surfing with the constant Maloja wind. And perhaps even more surprisingly surfing can be enjoyed on Lake Davos and Lake Heid, alongside stand-up paddle boarding and sailing.
