Head to the top of Monte Tamaro for scenic views, outdoor adventure activities, hiking, swimming, and more.

Take a toboggan ride through the downhill course, or go for a ride on the Flying Fox zipline for a thrilling above-ground experience. Go for a swim or relax at the Splash and Spa. You'll also have the opportunity to take in the views of Lake Maggiore and Lake Lugano on either side of you, and the snow-capped mountains. Mountain biking and skiing are offered seasonally.

  • After the steep final ascent, we enjoy a wonderful panorama all around. The Monte Rosa Massi, the Dufourspitze, Bernese Alps, Finsteraarhorn and the Grisons mountains opens our views. Below are the two lakes of Lake Lugano and Lago Maggiore with views of Lugano, Locarno and Bellinzona. A unique and unforgettable experience. We reach Monte Tamaro either by Monte Lema (Traversata) or but of Rivera train to Alpe Foppa and then in arduous 450 m rise to the top. To climb this peak is in the canton of Ticino and warmly recommended an absolute MUST.
