The valleys are lonely, the mountain paths have great views and the cities are bursting with joie de vivre and Italianness. This hiking tour takes you through the southernmost corner of Switzerland from the sublime castles of Bellinzona through lively Lugano and on to Mendrisio. The different perspectives of the lakes accompany you on your way to the highlights of Ticino.

On your individual journey to Bellinzona, the capital of Ticino, picturesque medieval castles await you, embedded in the impressive landscape of the southern Swiss Alps. Discover this charming city, which offers a fascinating mix of historic architecture and Italian flair, embedded in the picturesque panorama of the mountains.

Steep climb to Cima di Dentro. From here you have a wonderful view of the Magadino plain and the nearby Lake Maggiore. Take another look back at the three castles of Bellinzona (UNESCO World Heritage Site) before descending to Isone.

First through the swamp at Gola di Lago and then further through a sea of ​​ferns in the sparse birch forest towards Bigorio. There are panoramic views over Monte Bigorio and then the Franciscan monastery of Santa Maria: an eagle's nest above Tesserete.

Morning bus ride to Cimadera. From here, today's tour leads past the rock formations of the Denti della Vecchia over Monte Boglia through beech forests and plateaus to Monte Bré, the viewing platform high above Lugano. From here take the cog railway down to the city center.

The hike from Monte San Salvatore to Vico Morcote is a classic. It always goes a little downhill, forest areas alternate with spruced up villages, nice grottos and beautiful views along the way. From Morcote we continue by boat and cable car to Serpiano.

Monte San Giorgio, also known as the “Mountain of Fossils”, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Dinosaur fossils dated to 230-240 million years can be admired in a small museum in Meride.
