Biking: Lugano Bike

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.
