The gravel bike tour starts in Films, from where the route leads through the Flims forest down to Trin Mulin, with a view of the impressive Rhine Gorge along the way. On the route from Trin village down to Tamins, you follow the cantonal road before taking quiet gravel paths along the Rhine. Soon the Bündner Herrschaft begins, a region known for its winegrowing and charming little towns. For sporty riders, a short detour to Jenins and Maienfeld is a good way to experience the Mediterranean flair of the region. Bad Ragaz is the turning point of the tour after just under 50 km, offering the perfect opportunity for a short lunch break before the upcoming pass crossing. The ascent begins on the old Valenser Landstrasse, which has little traffic and rewards the effort with a unique view of the Tamina bridge and Pfäffers. For those interested in culture, a short detour to Pfäffers Monastery is worthwhile here. Continue on the road to Valens until the bike signs branch off onto the gravel path along the Mapraggsee lake. The wide gravel path briefly turns into an easy trail at the end of the lake before crossing the river over a bridge and rejoining the road to Vättis.

The road, which has little traffic, climbs leisurely and thus quite pleasantly overcomes the metres in altitude to the village. Here the high valley begins, where only a few cars are still to be found. Surrounded by the Grisons mountains, the route continues up to the top of the pass. Passing the toll booth, you first reach the Eggwald inn and shortly before the pass summit the mountain inn. From the mountain inn, the pass road climbs and becomes another test of strength until the tunnel at 1,406 metres. Once you reach the top, the breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains and valleys from the Rufichopf vantage point compensates for the exertion.

The descent from the Kunkelspass is not without danger, so watch out for possible bumps and be careful to keep control of your bike.

Once you arrive in Tamins, the route continues for a short stretch on the busy cantonal road, which has a cycle lane until just before Trin. Even during the day, we recommend riding here with lights on and not with children. Alternatively, this section can also be covered by post bus. From Trin the route goes through the Flims forest up to Flims, where you can recover after the strenuous tour with a refreshing swim in Lake Cresta and enjoy the sun. The tour finally ends in Flims, where you can round off the gravel bike tour in one of the cosy restaurants or cafés and recover from the efforts of the tour.


For the Tamin - Trin section, change briefly to the post bus and avoid the busy road.


Helmet, light and tools belong in the luggage.
