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.

Activities at Lake Cauma

Can’t imagine anything more beautiful than spending a summer’s day at or in the lake? A trip to Lake Cauma leaves nothing to be desired. Explore the entire lake by pedal boat, swim to the little island where you can enjoy the sun or find your balance on a stand-up paddle board. Those who prefer to keep their feet on dry land can run around on the volleyball court or simply lie back and soak up the sun. Our little guests can enjoy a sandbox and a play area.
