The sun-drenched golf course is nestled in a beautiful rural setting. Designed to blend with its natural surroundings, it commands a breathtaking view over the mountains of Surselva.

The impressive Rhine Gorge between Illanz and Reichenau provides the perfect scenery for a wet and wonderful adventure. If river rafting had not been already invented, it would have been devised for the Upper Rhine. Up to nine participants can board one of the sturdy rubber boats with multiple chambers. Together with an experienced guide, the group decides the pace. In quiet passages you will be transported to another world by the gorge''s unusual rock formations . In contrast, when you pass the rapids water spray and waves will ensure lots of fun in the boat.
Book your rafting adventure as a full day or a half-day trip with lunch or in combination with a bike tour.
