  • Certain that a view of the Lake from above deserves and it could not be otherwise. The mountain has its own charm and so if you're in the area, let us step.

  • Beautiful destination, many possibilities for young and old (hiking, numerous playgrounds, mountain biking...).

  • By car you reach Rivera in 15 minutes from Lugano and 15 minutes from Bellinzona. You leave the car parked near the SPlash and Spa of Rivera and climb with the cableway (lift 20 minutes) or on foot (ssalita very challenging ... done once). At the top there's a hut (Alpe Foppa) with an excellent restaurant, a pond full of tadpoles in the spring, and a beautiful church by the architect Mario Botta with fine views over the plain of Magadino ranging up to the castles of Bellinzona. For most athletes, there's an adventure park (climbing and Tibetan bridge) and a summer toboggan run fun and fast. For those who want to make 4 steps, a hike up to the Summit (45 ' -60 ') where's the antenna, or a nice cool down until the midway station or until Rivera (90 ')
