Tour description

This pleasant and easy itinerary from Locarno to Ascona, mostly on a bike path, allows you to visit several places of interest along the way. Starting from the Locarno town center, continue along the lake towards the Maggia delta, passing the modern Lido Locarno swimming complex (open year-round) and the Camellia Park, especially stunning in March and April. Once you reach the delta, follow the dirt road along the Maggia river bank and cross the river on the footbridge, which will bring you to the agricultural area known as Terreni alla Maggia. Here is one of Europe's northernmost cultivations of a particular cereal crop: do you know which one? Continue on this route until you reach the port, the golf course, and the Lido di Ascona swimming area. Only a few more minutes until you find yourself in the picturesque town of Ascona, with its charming piazza lined with restaurants and cafés, where you can stop for a well-earned break. Although there are several alternatives, we recommend you take the same route back.
