Excursions to the valleys of Ticino
Enjoy relaxing hours in the forests and valleys, setting your own pace and schedule. Visit the gorge of Ponte Brolla, the mountain church in Mogno or even the museum in Cevio. The many Grottos serving local specialties are an ideal way to round off your excursion.
This steep-sided valley, some 25 km long, begins in Gordola. The Roman influence becomes apparent as soon as you pass the reservoir of Vogorno and cross the oldest Roman bridge in Lavertezzo. Visit Sonogno, home to the handicrafts of Ticino, and finish this excursion with a visit to a grotto as well.
In Verdasio a small cable car leads up to Rasa. Up here, time seems to have stood still, and the inhabited typical Ticino village invites you to linger. Otherwise, Verdasio is the starting point for wonderful hiking trails to Intragna or Pizzo Leone, which offers one of the most beautiful panoramic views of the lake.
