Best Luxury Hotels in Flims, Switzerland 2022

The second largest ski area in the country, Flims guarantees snow during the ski season, thanks to its high alpine terrain at over 3000 meters. Located next to the resort of Laax (often voted the best ski area in Switzerland), it is a town in two parts; Dorf and Waldhaus, with a large gorge separating them. It is also home to a glacier and a large park – Crap Sogn Gion – with half pipes, drops, jumps and quarter pipes. And there are plenty of summer activities to enjoy, like mountain biking, hiking, rafting, golfing and wild swimming in the lakes.
