Via Francisca: Bonaduz - Ilanz
Show all 4 images
Today's stage is impressive, it leads us on the southern flank through the Rhine Gorge, the Swiss version of the "Grand Canyon", especially popular with water sports enthusiasts such as canoeists or raftsmen. The gorge has very steep flanks on both sides, so that the embarkation usually takes place in Ilanz and the disembarkation at the confluence of the Vorderrhein and Hinterrhein near Reichenau. However, there is still a transport option, because the Rhaetian Railway (narrow gauge) runs on the route Chur - Ilanz through the gorge, with some bridges and tunnels. This route is also used in winter. So whatever the weather has in store for capriciousness, we will definitely come to Ilanz.
Of course, we hope for sunny weather, because then this Etapppe with its breathtaking views is an unforgettable treat. We will climb at the beginning and enjoy the gorge from above, then it goes down to the Rhine, where we then come across the Rhaetian Railway and follow this and the Rhine Ilanz.
