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)

Those who are going in for only this part of Lugano Trekking can reach the Pairolo mountain hut in a little more than an hour starting at Cimadera. From the Mount Bar mountain hut it’s possible instead to reach Corticiasca in less than an hour. From Corticiasca to Cimadera there is a postal bus service.
