Switzerland Travel: A lesser-known gem for the ultimate Swiss Alps Adventure; Ecophiles

Switzerland – Swiss Tectonic Arena Sardona

If you’re planning your Switzerland travel itinerary, here’s a hidden gem in the Swiss Alps that offers a dreamy backdrop for adventure. Flims, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is home to spectacular mountain trails, lakes and breathtaking scenery.

The Swiss Alps resort of Flims is a lesser-known beauty located only 140km from Zurich (1 hr 30-mins drive, or 2 hrs by public transport) and offers some of the most stunning scenery. Travel here to find no less than three beautiful mountain lakes, the 400m deep Rhine Gorge (also referred to as Switzerland’s Grand Canyon) and the soaring peaks of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Tectonic Arena Sardona.

With such unique natural wonders on its doorstep, Flims has pioneered an eco-initiative called ‘Greenstyle’ to ensure sustainable tourism and protection of the local environment. Also, the Tectonic Arena Sardona, one of three of Switzerland’s UNESCO World Natural Heritage Sites, celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.
