The most ‘instagrammable’ spots in Flims

All the rage on Instagram: Lake Cauma, the Rhine gorge, Tectonic Arena Sardona – the three biggest natural attractions in Flims are very popular photo locations on social media. But the region also has many other locations to offer which make the perfect post in Instagram feeds. Whether you’re a professional photographer or an amateur snapper, here are our ten most ‘instagrammable’ spots in Flims.

1. Lake Cauma

Lake Cauma is a classic in Instagram posts. With its intense turquoise-blue waters and ease of access, the mountain lake is a popular subject on social media. Note that since last summer, drones are prohibited around the entire lake. But even without a bird’s-eye view, Lake Cauma still presents the perfect backdrop for any type of shot. Our tip: The lift station above the lake is the perfect place to snap a picture of the entire lake.

2. Rhine Gorge - Mutta Sura

A little more hidden away, but every bit as beautiful – the Rhine gorge, also known as the Swiss Grand Canyon. Here, you can choose from a wide range of different angles and perspectives, depending on how adventurous your choice of access is. Our personal favourite is the view from Mutta Sura, as shown here by @christinara. The best time to visit here is early morning, when you can witness truly spectacular sunrises.

3. Tectonic Arena Sardona

As one of just three UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Switzerland, the Tectonic Arena Sardona is a wonderful photo location. The jagged peaks of the Tschingelhörner soar majestically into the sky, while the silvery waters of the lower Segnesboden follow their path below. Martinsloch, the opening in the rock face in the heart of the mountain, is also an interesting photo opportunity. But be warned that drones will lose signal when they fly through the Martinsloch opening!

4. Alp Mora

From the obvious choices to a real secret tip – the glacial mills on Alp Mora. Almost 20 larger and smaller enclosed basins line up beside one another like a chain of pearls. With the crystal-clear waters in its mills and breathtaking views of the valley below, the Alp Mora is the perfect photo setting and a refreshing place to cool down after an Instagram-tastic hike from Bargis.
