If you are ever in Flims, don't miss a breathtaking walk around Lake Cresta. It is an amazing and quiet place. In summer or fall you can even enjoy a nice but really cold swim in the crystalclear water.

lake Cresta is lovely, however it pales in comparison to its sister lake, Caumasee. It's not as blue, not as scenic, but hey, itt's just as wet. Oh, and needless to say, it's clean!

This lake is only an hour stroll from Flims. However, it is uphill on the return. Beautiful glacial lake, with some lovely scuptures.

It looks like a glacier lake, but this lake also is the result of the massive landslide thousends of years ago. Lake Cresta is not as big as the Lake Cauma, but its perfect for hiking, swimming and has a nice restaurant nearby.
