First Relaxation, then Adventure!

Ticino has everything your heart could possibly desire for a holiday: dreamy countryside, countless opportunities for a number of sports, hiking and walking trails, unspoilt natural beauty and a lot of fun. And there’s no shortage of wonderful places to eat! Below you will find a few tips and ideas for young and old alike:


A Treat for Mountain Lovers!

From Orselina you can reach Cardada by cable car - the local Locarno mountain is worth a trip at any time of the year. The panoramic view from its viewing platform is utterly breathtaking. And for the more intrepid explorer who'd like to go even higher, the chairlift takes you up to Cimetta. Both mountains are also the ideal starting points for fantastic walking and hiking.

Lido Locarno & SPA

Fun, Wellness & Relaxation

Everyone loves it here, whether they visit for sport or wellness: the complex has many different indoor and outdoor pools, water slides and so much more. Bathing rituals are a revered activity at the swimming and sauna complex of the Termali Salini & Spa Lido Locarno. This oasis of calm invites you to literally dive into another world.

Verzasca Valley

The Heart of Ticino

The somewhat barren and untamed Verzasca Valley is predominantly characterised by steep slopes and countless waterfalls. But this area also has a “different side”: the mouth of the valley has a mild, Mediterranean climate in which even palm trees flourish. With fabulous walking and hiking trails around the lake or in the mountains, this region makes the heart of every visitor beat a little faster.

The Maggia Valley

A Magical Valley

The stunning Maggia Valley stretches out from Locarno to meander through the Alps. With its characteristic jagged rock faces, mountain lakes and glaciers, this area also offers a rich green landscape. The grottos are a special favourite with their typical local specialities. Active holidaymakers come here especially to enjoy the endless walking and hiking.


Romantic Villages & Wonderful Excursions

Centovalli is a region bursting with contrasts: Mediterranean plant life blends into forests, interspersed with wild and craggy cliffs. The typical stone-built houses of this area tell a tale of how times were once difficult here. This is an area which is proud of its traditional food: don’t miss the opportunity to try polenta, risotto, minestrone, salami and cheese!


The Jewel on Lake Maggiore

The romantic resort of Ascona is also Switzerland’s lowest lying town and is mainly famous for its Mediterranean climate. The pristine and exceptionally maintained old town is full of high class boutiques and art galleries and a leisurely stroll along the promenade is well worth it! A special highlight of the many different cultural events is “JazzAscona”.

Splash & Spa

The new water park and SPA

At the Splash & Spa Tamaro in Rivera, you can relax and have fun all day long. In what is probably the most modern water park in Europe, huge swimming pools and spectacular water slides await visitors for pure bathing pleasure. If rest and relaxation are more your thing, then a unique spa area “with all the trimmings” is well worth a visit.

Monte Tamaro

Fun for the Whole Family

In recent years, Monte Tamaro has become synonymous with action and fun. This natural adventure park is packed full of so many opportunities for pure adrenaline addicts and mountain bikers can really “run riot” here. The numerous hiking trails give a spectacular panoramic view of the surrounding valleys reaching as far as the Matterhorn.


The City with an International Flavour

Locarno has a special draw for its visitors, with a cosmopolitan ambience which has not detracted from its accessible appeal. Exciting events and concerts with internationally renowned artists are held every year on the Piazza Grande in Locarno centre. The cultural high point has to be the annual film festival screenings which take place in August.
