Summer activities in the Brigels area include hiking,  mountain biking, downhill biking, golf, miniature golf, hunting, fishing, swimming in the lake, bocce, volleyball, a children's playground, tennis, horseback riding, carriage rides, fitness courses,  and paragliding.

In the region there are over 150 kilometres (90 miles) of marked hiking trails. There are also possibilities for longer cross-country hikes. For example, the popular Three-Pass-Tour over the Kisten, Panixer and Richteli Passes to the Canton of Glarus. Another long hike is the Senda Sursilvana trail, the 'star' of high-altitude hiking trails, which extends for 100 kilometres (60 miles) from Chur to the Oberalp Pass. There are many other great walking explorations including the "Uaul Scatlè" (Europe's highest primeval pine forest), the Castle Jorgenberg ruins (about 1070 AD) in the mountains above the nearby town of Ruin, the Rhine River Gorge (called the "Grand Canyon of Switzerland"), many historic churches and chapels (including the 8th century AD Abby in Disentis), and the spraying waterfalls below the Panixer Reservoir.

Mountain biking, with 140 kilometres (85 miles) of marked routes, is rapidly becoming a popular activity in the area. Brigels has recently opened a Bike Repair, Parts, and Sales Store to provide support to the many riders who visit each summer.

The 9-hole golf course in Brigels features spectacular views and great golfing. Special golf packages are available at the Hotel; check with the front desk. Additionally, the first water driving range in Europe adds another attractive feature for golfers. Miniature golf is available for families.

Don't miss the chance to visit Chur, the capital of the Canton (State) of Graubunden and the oldest city in Switzerland. Settled over 5,500 years ago, the city became the capital of a Roman province in 15 BC. The Old Town section of the city contains many Medieval buildings, the oldest of which is the Cathedral of St. Luzius built between 1178 and 1282. The Rathaus (Town Hall) still contains the Family Crests of some of the families who were prominent in the early Guild government (15-16th centuries) - the owners of the Kistenpass Hotel are descended from one of these families. The Old Town area is also home to many interesting shops and restaurants, all housed in the old medieval buildings.

Another spectacular attraction is the Flimserstein, or Flims Rock, a UNESCO World Heritage Site just outside the nearby town of Flims. Known geologically as the Glarus Overthrust, this unique tectonic thrust plate measures 2,600  metres (7,200 feet) high and 35 kilometres (20 miles) in length. Competing theories on the mechanics of it's origin are hotly depated in Geology circles; come and look to see if you can determine how it was formed.

Train trips on the famously precise Swiss Railway system have always been popular in the spectacular Alpine regions. The Glacier Express is the most famous of these, running from Chur through the Oberalp Pass to Zermatt amid some of the most breathtaking mountain scenery in the world. Another popular train is the Bernina Express, running through the rugged Alps from Chur through St. Moritz to the Bernina Pass and down the beautiful Poschiavo Valley to Tirano in Italy - the Bernina Express has recently been selected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
