Hi K. & A., welcome to MySwissAlps!
So you're temporarily residing in Switzerland? That's great! You've already been exploring the country thoroughly. Thanks so much for sharing your experiences with other forum members here, they're very helpful. It's obvious that you've been combining tourist highlights with remoter areas so far, which is an excellent choice. I fully understand your love for Graubünden; it's a wonderful canton with lots and lots of hiking options, atmospheric towns and splendid nature to explore. Now, as for your further plans: the links I've inserted provide information about the sites/routes you've mentioned. Here are some more answers:
- the hike you linked, or part of it, could be an option for your visit to the Rhine gorge next Sunday. Note that, depending on your point of departure, it takes a while to get to the starting point in Laax. But I assume you're familiar with the timetable by now and that you can estimate whether or not a trip is too much for the time you have available. Alternatively you can walk parallel to the rail tracks and river, e.g. near Versam-Safien. An overview of all trails can be found here. Whether they're still well accessible depends on current weather and snow circumstances. A local tourist office should be able to inform you about this. The train trip along the river here is a must. However, this segment is part of the Glacier Express ride you planned as well, so you'll get to enjoy the views from the train anyway;
- unfortunately I'm not that familiar with details of the Fideris area. Hiking trails are displayed here. I hope the Prättigau Tourist website will be of help. Trips to Davos, Chur and Arosa are doable from Fideris. Although it's not much of an "off-beaten path" tip, I do want to mention the Weisshorn near Arosa. In clear weather you'll get to enjoy a splendid roundabout view of the Bündner mountains. The train trip from Chur to Arosa is highly recommended too.
Enjoy your stay in Switzerland, and let us know if you have any further tips or questions!
