Trin offers a peaceful atmosphere and inspiring natural landscapes, in close proximity to the large ski area of Flims/Laax/Falera. The village borders a flourishing mountain forest and is surrounded by sunny plateaus that are prepared for cross-country skiing in winter. In addition to magnificent mountain panoramas, the fairytale Crestasee lake and the Tectonic Arena Sardona world heritage site, you can also discover the spectacular Rhine Gorge – known as the Swiss Grand Canyon.
The new youth hostel is part of the Mesaglina mountain forest centre in Grisons and will open its doors just in time for the upcoming winter season. In keeping with the philosophy of the Mountain Forest Project, the building was renovated using only local mountain wood, and is heated with wood chips.
Collaboration with the Mountain Forest Project
The youth hostel is part of the new Mesaglina mountain forest centre, run by the Mountain Forest Project foundation. The project was founded in 1987 during the debates about forest dieback, and has been an independent foundation since 1990. The idea is to teach newcomers to forestry about the importance of the ecosystem and motivate them to become more familiar with its varied protective effects through volunteer work in the mountain forest.
