Aussicht in die Rheinschlucht in Laax.



There is a reason why the Rhine gorge between Reichenau and Ilanz is known as the "Swiss Grand Canyon". It is one of the most spectacular landscapes in Graubünden and is unique even in the Alps. In the wild gorges, you can experience pure adrenalin while river rafting or take a hike along the craggy rock formations. An easily accessible hiking trail along the Rhine also presents excellent opportunities to have a barbecue, create stone mounds or dip your feet in the water. You can even find orchids here. If you prefer a little more comfort, you can also explore the Rhine gorge by train or PostBus.

Viewing platforms

You can find a number of viewing platforms around the gorge, presenting unique views of the natural phenomenon.
