majestic place in the early morning when the sun is rising. perfect to combine with a mountainbike ride either around the lakes (easy) or up to alp morta (advanced)!

If you are ever in Flims, don't miss a breathtaking walk around Lake Cresta. It is an amazing and quiet place. In summer or fall you can even enjoy a nice but really cold swim in the crystalclear water.

It is a nice place to visit. But in March there is no elevator however we can walk and see how nice and shady around there.

This lake is only an hour stroll from Flims. However, it is uphill on the return. Beautiful glacial lake, with some lovely scuptures.
