This is a fairly easy tour of the Gottard massif, which requires a reasonable level of stamina.
From Airolo via the Val Tremola, we climb to Ospizio following the old paved road to the Gottard Pass. Now we find ourselves in real mountain bikers’ country. Surrounded by the mountains of the Gottard, we take a pleasant path to Alpe Pontino, where a magnificent view of the Leventina awaits. The descent to Airolo passes through the Val Canaria and is a little uneven and steep.
