Flims and its surroundings are a must for all nature lovers. The Flims landslide shaped not just the sunny plateau, but also the rugged Rhine Gorge as well as the crystal-clear bathing lakes of Cauma, Cresta and Laax. 

The Flims waterway hike (Romansh: Trutg dil Flem) runs from the waterfall in the lower Segnesboden right to the centre of the village. At times it leads the hiker directly along the river course through the narrow gorge landscapes across unique bridges, past waterfalls, water mills and water slides. At others, it takes you along the upper slopes of the stream’s course, along delightful alpine landscapes and mountain pastures dotted with huts.

The Flem is crossed a total of six times by in part audaciously designed bridges. They provide the perfect vantage point for taking in the bizarre rock formations that make up the Flem gorges. Finally you reach two platforms close to the valley station, the perfect spot for hikers to listen once again to the symphony of water music. 


The Segneshütte not only offers the opportunity to have a bite to eat, but is also the starting point for numerous other hikes.


Caution: The Trutg is a narrow mountain trail that presents a number of difficulties: slope crossings, bridges and walkways across flowing waters. Mountain boots, surefootedness and at times a good head for heights are required.

To make the Trutg dil Flem accessible also to less accomplished hikers, it is possible to complete the trail in sections using a number of entry and exit points.

Mountain bikers are not permitted on the Trutg dil Flem.


Outdoor clothing, sturdy footwear, protection from rain, long pants, backpack.


The starting point of the route is the valley station of the cable car in Flims. From there, the route, which is marked with number 764, runs in just under four hours and with a height difference of 1260 meters along the seven bridges specially constructed for the Wasserweg, to the waterfall at the Unterer Segnesboden. The route can be divided into stages via the three cable car stations Foppa, Naraus and Cassons, as well as the shuttle stop Alp Nagens-Stalla, with the possible start or end points Punt Prau Ault, Punt Gronda, Punt da Max, Punt Desch, Segneshütte and Segnesboden. As a result, the route does not necessarily have to be completed in its entirety. The descent can take place on foot, but also easily by shuttle or by cable car. Conversely, the route can also be walked from the highest point to the valley without any problems.
