Lake Cauma

The jewel of Flims

Known as ‘Lag la Cauma’ in the Romansh language, meaning ‘lake siesta’, Lake Cauma is the jewel of Flims. Swimming, chilling out or sunbathing. Whether you’re travelling by foot or by bike, a stop at this magnificent lake is the perfect addition to your trip. It is surrounded by forest on three sides, and contains a wooded island in the centre of the lake where you can relax in complete tranquillity. Particularly striking is the turquoise-coloured and pleasantly cool water with temperatures of between 17 and 24 degrees Celsius.
