No rain today!
After almost 3 days “locked” inside the hotel due to the bad weather, we were eager to explore the places around us!
Heidsee, Lenzerheide, Switzerland
The trails around the lake have many squirrels and the guys are really funny! They are not shy, as they come not “only” close to us but they can jump on our legs searching for food! Shameless Lenzerheide’s squirrels! 🙂
After visiting Lenzerheide Tourism Office on a previous (rainy) day, we were carrying great maps of the region. I must add that the service provided by the Tourism Office was really great, with a nice lady who was fluent in English giving us all advice we asked for, also pointing out other sightseeing attractions and hiking trails best suited for our ability.
Great Switzerland! For sure you guys know what the tourism industry is all about! Congratulations! We left the Tourism Office totally informed about the “best things to do in Lenzerheide“!
We started our day going to Sporz. It’s close to “downtown Lenzerheide”,. It’s possible to go there by foot or by “Rot bus” . The “Rot Bus” is a free bus that carries people around town.
We got the free bus, missed the correct stop, stayed on the bus (it’s a circular route), and after it circled the lake we got off where we should have stopped in the first time.
Instead of taking the chairlift we hiked all the way up!!!! Awesome! The trail goes in the middle of a forest with gorgeous views along (the long) way.
Before lunch we saw these beautiful horses: The “Brown” and the “White”.
We had lunch at a basic restaurant with delicious food!
My plate is the one in the middle. Delicious!!! 🙂
Restaurant Crap Naros, Lenzerheide. Informal restaurant with good meals, up on the mountain.
After lunch we went to check on the horses again and they were… taking a nap! 🙂 So cute! 🙂

On our way down we crossed many farms where the stock was freely walking nearby us.
We were also able to contemplate ancient and modern architecture living side by side.
On our way back to the hotel we crossed the city center where we saw the pretty bronze sculpture (picture bellow). There were also goats walking freely near the river.
We returned around 7pm to the hotel. I guess we walked more than 40 km today! It was…. ABSOLUTELY GREAT !!!!
Tomorrow: PLEASE sun…. come! I promise I will sing “Here comes the sun….” lah lah lah…
