Biking: Lugano Bike Switzerland

The hills of the "Malcantone"

This is one of the best bike-tours in Switzerland. Narrow paths lead you along the flanks of Val Colla and over the back of Monte Tamaro.

You will ascend to dizzying heights, experience crashing downhills and cycle past the most famous panoramic peaks of Ticino. Few tours can boast such a high proportion of single trails as the Lugano bike and at the same time offer such diverse landscapes. Bike dreams come true in the hills of Malcantone.

Moderate
  • 4 Days / 3 Nights
  • Self-guided tour

Itinerary

Leave your luggage in Lugano and cycle up to Suvigliana. From here with the furniculaire up to Monte Brè. Bre-Sonvico section on wooded single trails, to Pairolo on unpaved roads, mostly in open country.

From M. Bar and M. Roveraccio fantastic views of the Luganese (Lugano District) and the valleys.

approx. 22 km (Single-Trails: 6 km)
1'300 hm
740 m

Thrilling panorama trail. Pairolo Gola di Lago on the mountain ridge, alternating single trail and unpaved roads. Fairy-tale landscape, characterized by Alpine meadows and pastures, as well as three huts. S. Lucio, Cap. M. Bar and M. della Croce, fantastic vantage points.

approx. 30 km (Single-Trails: 16 km)
535 hm

Take the aerial cableway up M. Tamaro and save energy. From the summit an unpaved road and a single trail in the middle of forest, followed by an unpaved road. Arosio-Miglieglia on a single trail in the typical rolling hills of Malcantone. Don't miss the ascent to M. Lema!

approx. 27 km (Single-Trails: 7 km)
725 hm
1'550 m

A journey of discovery in lower Malcantone. On the M. Faeta and down towards Astano on a forest road. It's well worth taking a break in the picturesque village centre and at the lake of the same name. Sections along roads in varied landscape to P. Cremenage. After P. Tresa alongside the River Tresa.

approx. 30 km (Single-Trails: 6 km)

Characteristic

Bike pleasures await you here. Some of the long ascents can be shortened with the local infrastructure. Good technique and good physical condition are important. No luggage transfer on the trip to Pairolo.
