Flims is an undiscovered gem of a resort, with a great choice of flattering runs and a reputation for being one of the most snow sure places in the Alps. It’s not hard to see why this well kept secret continues to be a client favourite.
Flims is linked with neighbouring resort Laax, offering 235km of skiing across the whole Flims-Laax-Falera ski area. The scenery in Flims is stunning and all abilities are catered for, with a vast range of slopes suitable for all levels from beginners to experts. One of the longest pistes in the Alps runs from the Vorab Glacier and makes its way to Flims along some reds and blues. So, if you’re looking for a tranquil but adrenaline fuelled and scenic run, this is one for you. And for the more experienced, we would recommend the lovely long black run just off Vorab to Alp Ruschein. Our clients rave about the run from La Siala to Flims via Grauberg as it is 12km long and offers a bit of everything – steep, gentle or off-piste routes, beautiful views and goes past the famous Ustria Stargels restaurant.
ACTIVITIES AND GASTRONOMY
We have hand-picked some of our favourite things to do and places to eat from our extensive experience in Flims. Our Client Concierge team will be happy to make reservations and give additional recommendations for you. You’ll find our top picks below.

The tepee tent and open fire make La Vacca a trendy steakhouse like no other. Serving sublime meat specialities, exquisite wines and impeccable service allows for La Vacca to be a firm favourite in Flims.
A short leisurely stroll from the old village Flims Waldhaus is the enchanting Lake Caumasee, completely secluded and surrounded by forest on three sides. Marvel over the striking turquoise waters which people start swimming in as early as April due to the higher temperature of the water from the underground springs.
The extensive and exclusive list of treatments at the Waldhaus includes staples like fitness facilities and massage, combined with beauty treatments for both the face and body using luxurious Ligne St. Barth products. Impressive indoor and outdoor pools, an earth sauna and if you’re feeling brave a natural plunge pool in the frozen bathing pond.
Located in a rustic building and serving unique seasonal specialities along with carefully chosen gourmet dishes makes Cavigilli a popular choice of restaurant in Flims. Exciting and unfamiliar food combinations are rounded off with an exceptional and dynamic wine list.
