Winter paradise in the Swiss mountains – cross-country skiing in Flims

Collection by Flims Laax Falera

Impressive mountains reach into the sky all around you as you glide over plateaus and through magical, snow-covered forests on your skis. You leave everyday life far behind you here; take a deep breath and enjoy nature to the fullest.

Switzerland’s region of Flims offers a varied cross-country skiing network with 62 kilometres (38.5 mi) of double track. Whether you are a beginner or advanced, you’ll find something to suit you here. In this Collection, we present 10 fun-filled cross-country ski trails in Flims.

Explore the traffic-free Bargis high valley or the snow-covered Grosswald forest, straight from the pages of a magical fairytale. Glide across plains and meadows with the snow glistening around you. Visit the impressive Rhine Gorge, also known as the ‘Grand Canyon of Switzerland’. On almost all cross-country trails, inns give you the chance to warm up from the cold en route. If you like to ski in the dark, the two-night trails are fantastic. On Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays, they’re lit up into the evening.

All starting points are easily accessible by public transport. You can also travel by car to most of the trails. Catch the mountain railway or shuttle bus to reach the circular routes in the Plaun and Bargis high valleys. These landscapes give you plenty of peace and solitude. The ski centres of Trin, Flims, Bargis, Sagogn and Plaun have cloakrooms and toilets. You can also rent cross-country skis and equipment here.

Tours & Highlights

    Langlaufloipe Flims – Conn

    Cross-Country Skiing Highlight

    This varied tour takes you through the fairytale-like Flimser Grosswald and to the "Grand Canyon of Switzerland". At nine kilometers in length and almost 180 meters in altitude, this is a medium-difficult tour for which you should plan a total of around one to three hours.

    The starting point is the Flims cross-country skiing center, which you can easily reach by car or postbus. From there you glide over the meadows of Rens and get breathtaking views of the snowy mountains of Graubünden. Soon you will dive into the Flimser Grosswald, where a fairytale winter landscape of impressive boulders, fir trees and beeches awaits you.

    On the forest clearing Conn you can stop and warm up in the restaurant of the same name. From here you have a breathtaking view of the 14-kilometer-long Rhine Gorge. I also recommend a detour on foot to the "il Spir" viewing platform. Winding trails then take you back uphill and back to your starting point.

    Langlaufloipe Sagogn – Schluein

    Cross-Country Skiing Highlight

    On this moderately difficult round you will discover the beautiful terraced landscape of the Rhine Valley and you will be offered beautiful views of the snow-covered floodplain forests. Since the trail gets a lot of sun from spring onwards, it is particularly recommended in January and February.

    The circular route is 6.7 kilometers long in total. There are not many meters of altitude to overcome, but the curves and short descents as well as the small, crisp climbs require some technical skill and fitness. The starting point is the cross-country skiing center Tegia Nordica, which is right next to the Postbus stop Sagogn, Vitg Dado. There are also enough parking spaces here. If you want to know more about this trail, you can also find all the information here: flimslaax.com/langlauf/track/index/40824185.

    Langlaufloipe Plaun

    Cross-Country Skiing Highlight

    This easy circular trail takes you across the sunny Plaun plateau. At an altitude of 1,630 meters, snow-covered coniferous forest and views of the white mountain peaks accompany you as you glide over the glittering snow. The short route of just over three kilometers and the few meters in altitude are perfect for beginners and connoisseurs. Afterwards, you can stop off at the “La Vacca” bar. A delicious hot drink will quickly warm you up again.

    You can only reach the starting point from Films with the gondola lift. Therefore, note the times of the last descent if you are on the road in the afternoon. You can also find all information about this trail here: flimslaax.com/langlauf/track/index/23435043.

    Langlaufloipe Trin – Suraua

    Cross-Country Skiing Highlight

    You glide through a white mountain world while the sun makes the snow glitter around you - that's pure cross-country skiing joy. That's exactly what you get on the easy Trin Suraua trail. With a length of four and a half kilometres, it is also suitable for beginners, only the short ascents and descents on the hilly terrain require a bit of technique and fitness here and there.

    In wide loops you fly over the plain at Trin Mulin while you soak up the magnificent panoramic view of the rugged mountains around you. The terrain is slightly inclined in places and a short, steep climb right at the beginning gets your pulse racing. With a few double pole pushes, you'll soon be back at the starting point.

    The trail starts at the P3 "Punt Suraua" car park in Trin Mulin, which you can reach either by car or postbus. From the Trin Mulin and Trin-Porclis stops you can walk to the starting point in about five to ten minutes. You can also find more information here: flimslaax.com/langlauf/track/index/40823960.

    Langlaufloipe Trin – Crestasee

    Cross-Country Skiing Highlight

    The idyllic Flims Forest and the picturesque Crestasee are the highlights of this moderately difficult round. At just over five kilometers in length, it's not all that long, but you'll definitely feel the 160 meters in altitude in your legs. If you long for peace and nature, this trail is just right for you. You should plan about an hour in total. If you want more of a challenge, you can also combine the Flims and Trin trails to create a trail network 32 kilometers long.

    You can reach the starting point of this trail after a short walk via the Trin - Suraua trail, which you can also find in this collection. This in turn begins at the P3 "Punt Suraua" car park in Trin Mulin, which you can reach either by car or postbus. From the Trin Mulin and Trin-Porclis stops you can walk to the start in about five to ten minutes.

    A first crisp ascent takes you up to the beautiful Crestasee. Through the quiet forest we continue up to Conn-Strasse. The descent that follows requires some skill and driving skills, but you will be rewarded with magnificent views of the snow-covered mountains.

    All information about this trail can be found on our website: flimslaax.com/langlauf/track/index/40143821.

    Snow-covered, quiet mountain forests, a real Nordic feeling and breathtaking views await you on this trail. A bit of fitness is required for almost 16 kilometers and 170 meters in altitude, but the ascents and descents are long and harmless.

    You can either start at the cross-country skiing center on the outskirts of Flims or the sports center Prau La Selva. Both points can be reached by public transport and ample parking is also available. From there your way leads you to the excursion restaurant Conn, where you can stop and warm up. We also recommend a short detour on foot to the "il Spir" viewing platform. From the futuristic platform you get a fascinating view of the Rhine Valley.

    Langlaufloipe Flims – Rens

    Cross-Country Skiing Highlight

    This hilly circular trail is perfect for you if you are looking for a little challenge. The rapid descent and the short, steep climbs require technique, fitness and attention. But you will be rewarded with wonderful views of the snowy mountains around Flims.

    You can reach the Flims cross-country skiing center either by post bus or by car. Sufficient parking spaces are available. On the meadows of Rens, the trail meanders around hills and bushes before the first rapid descent is due. Don't forget to take a peek at your stunning surroundings from time to time. The way back to the cross-country center is really hard on the legs, because it leads steeply uphill. The heart of cross-country skiers will definitely beat a little faster here.

    Langlaufloipe im Hochtal Bargis

    Cross-Country Skiing Highlight

    The car-free high valley of Bargis offers peace and pure enjoyment of nature. Encircled between impressive rocks and mountains and surrounded by forest, you glide at around 1,550 meters over the sunny plateau - past white-covered Maiensäss huts and deep-frozen mountain streams. Without major differences in altitude and with the possibility of shortening, the round is also easily feasible for beginners.

    You can only reach the starting point from Flims with the public Flims Laax Falera Shuttle in the direction of Fidaz. From there you can slide down into the valley in two loops and enjoy the breathtaking views of the snow-covered Piz Dolf and Ringelspitz. Afterwards, a stop at the Berghaus Bargis is recommended.
