Alp Flix – a treasure island of biodiversity

Alp Flix is located on a plateau above the village of Sur. It is often referred to as a treasure island of biodiversity. Alongside the impressive nature, families, hikers, bikers and nature lovers alike will enjoy Alp Flix to the full. The Agrotourissmo farm of Cotti Agricultura offers various attractions for guests, including horseriding, sleeping in a yurt and even catering with its own products. Next to the farm, the Berghaus Piz Platta is open all year round. 

Explorer's trail

Young and old explorers can learn more about nature in a fun way on the explorer's trail course at six stations on Alp Flix. Professor Fix's explorer kit can be used to build water wheels, cast plaster animal tracks and spiders can be observed with the cup magnifying glass.
