Deutsch: Die Ruinaulta oder Rheinschlucht ist eine bis zu 400 Meter tiefe Schlucht des Vorderrheins zwischen Ilanz und der Mündung des Hinterrheins bei Reichenau im Kanton Graubünden in der Schweiz. Der de:rätoromanische Name Ruinaulta ist zusammengesetzt aus den beiden Wörtern Ruina (Geröllhalde, Steinbruch) und aulta (hoch).
English: Ruinaulta is a canyon on the Vorderrhein just upstream of its confluence with the Hinter Rhine at Reichenau, Eastern Switzerland. It is sometimes known as the Rhine Canyon, or Swiss Grand Canyon (more for its size than any resemblance to the Grand Canyon). Protected by cliffs several hundred metres high, the area is forested and a haven for wildlife. It is easily accessible only by the Ruinaulta line of Rhaetian Railways, and is a popular location for rafting.
