Lago Maggiore based in one hotel

Lake Maggiore based on one hotel

Swiss Dolce Vita.

The crystal clear water of Lago Maggiore is sparkling in the sun, loved couples roam down the Piazza Grande and palm trees grow on the lake promenade: when staying in Ticino, you could easily forget that you are still in Switzerland. When going on this tour you discover some of the longest swiss valleys, go by ship to the famous market of Luino and visit Ticinos capital, the medieval city Bellinzona. You get to know many sides from the southernmost Swiss canton: close to the Lago Maggiore the landscape is charming and tender, in the Maggia Valley Ticino is wild and defiant. But no matter how you discover this region: Ticino and its Lago Maggiore will put a spell on you!

Starting at the lake promenade you cycle to the flat Magadino area and go past small forests and big farming areas until you reach the city walls of Ticinos capital: Bellinzona. In this town you find many old castles, hidden places and the old city wall. After a short break you go past romantic towns back to Losone.

Today’s program is a discovery tourto the city of Ascona. First you go past small lidos to the city centre and the lake promenade of Ascona. From here you will take a ferry to the Islands of Brissago (incl.). Then the route leads you from the on small roads to the branchs of the valley Centovalli. Here you have to face one short uphill before visiting sleepy villages. The route then brings you on an easy path back to Losone.

More than 50 kilometres the river Maggia runs through the alps before finally flowing into the Lago Maggiore. You go past the waterfall at Monte Brolla until you reach the lovely town Maggia. There you have time for a short break and to visit the chapel Santa Maria with its wonderful frescos.

Today you cycle to Locarno. From there a short train trip (incl.) will take you to the small town of Melide. The surroundings of Lake Lugano will impress you with its beautiful scenary, colorful villages and even palm trees will spoil your eyes.

The route

Most of the times you cycle on tarmac and sometimes on gravel roads. When going back from Luino you go on the public road most of the time. Nonetheless this road is very quiet during the day. In the city centres of Locarn or Ascona the cycle paths lead through pedestrian areas. It might be better to push your bicycle to get through. In every tour you have to deal with small uphills, but these should be no obstacles even for unexercised guests. Generally speaking the trips are very easy.
