It is an easy walk from Flims to Cauma Lake. There is a cable car linking the lake with the trail. The colors of the lake are spectacular. There is swimming opportunities in season, and there is a restaurant at the lake.

The Caumasee is quite nice and has brilliant water. Sadly there is an entrance fee of 12 CHF per person when you want easy access to water. If you walk around the lake you’ll still find some spot without paying. Parking in Flims can also...More

This hidden gem was a part of a Swiss road trip I had planned with a friend and it was my personal favorite. That is the actual color of the water, and it's even lovelier up close. You can hike down to it and there...More

A nice hike through the woods (or funicular ride) and you are at a beautiful small lake with swimming and a hiking path all around it. A huge bonus is the very nice cafeteria style restaurant with good quality food, beer, and wine. Hike, swim,...More
