Details

Description

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

The route leads via Trin village down to Tamins, then over the Rhine and a small climb to Bonaduz. Here you turn right onto roads with little traffic in the direction of Versam. A slight incline of 3.5 km with an average gradient of 3% warms the legs before the ascent to Versam. The hairpin bends in the ascent to Versam are steep on average at over 6%. After you have passed 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 comes up during the tour, you should turn back in time.
