Description

The classic local route with 1,000 meters of altitude circles the breathtaking Swiss Grand Canyon.

The route leads via Trin Dorf down to Tamins, then over the Rhine and a small ascent to Bonaduz. Here turn right onto little-used roads in the direction of Versam. A slight incline of 3.5 km with an average 3% incline warms the legs before the ascent to Versam. The hairpin curves in the ascent to Versam are on average over 6% steep. After passing Versam, the wonderful descent to Illanz starts. From here, the 9 km long ascent on the other side of the valley leads back to Flims.

Sicherheitshinweis

In uncertain weather conditions, the tour should not be started. Weather changes in the mountains are frequent. If a rain front or similar rises during the tour, you should turn back in time.
