Tour description

Lugano Trekking!
This experience consists in a three-day trek that gives you the necessary time to really take advantage of the extraordinary panorama, beauty and of the peace and quiet that the lush local natural surroundings have to offer! This proposal is especially attractive from the naturalistic viewpoint (geology, flora and fauna). Half way through each leg you’ve got the opportunity to stop for lunch and at the end of each day you can stay overnight in a comfortable mountain hut. This offer has been quite a successful one and represents an exciting experience that allows you to hike along a fascinating itinerary that starts at Bré, just overlooking Lugano and ends at Tesserete. Request your brochure. The tour can be shortened.


Note(s)

You can reach the village of Brè either by bus from Lugano or you can take the cable car up Mount Brè from Cassarate, the latter option being much more enticing on account of the breathtaking view it offers. Brè village is at a 15 minute walk from the summit.
Those who feel fulfilled with this first part of Lugano Trekking may return home following the shortest route that leads to Cimadera in less than one hour. From Cimadera you can take the postal bus.
