Cycling: Centre tour Lago Maggiore

Swiss Dolce Vita

The waters of Lago Maggiore are sparkling in the sun, 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 one of the longest swiss valleys and visit Ticinos capital, the medieval city Bellinzona.

You get to know many sides of the southernmost Swiss canton: close to the Lago Maggiore the landscape is charming and tender, in the Maggia Valley Ticino it is wild and defiant. But no matter how you discover this region: Ticino and its Lago Maggiore will put a spell on you!

Tour character

The tours lead on tarmac and on gravel roads. In the city centres of Locarno and Ascona the cycle paths lead through pedestrian areas. Pushing the bicycle might be necessary here. Every day you have to deal with small uphills, but these should be no obstacles even for unexercised guests. An easy tour, even for beginners.

Leave the car at home! For every bike, biking or hiking tour in Switzerland, you will receive an SBB coupon per participant, which you can use to deduct CHF 10 from the ticket price for traveling by train. The reduction can be obtained in the SBB online store or in the SBB app.

Sehr gute Kurztour
Folgende Verbesserungsvorschläge haben wir: - Die Mietvelos müssten mind. eine Klemmvorrichtung am Lenker für die Wegbeschreibung / Plan haben - die Wegbeschreibung war nicht sehr gut, fast zu ausführlich; in den meisten Fällen wäre der Hinweis auf die Veloroute XX (meist 31) das Beste gewesen - es sollte noch eine etwas andere Country-Bike-Tour im Tessin angeboten werden (oder z. B. eine längere) Ansonsten: - tolle Kurztour! - tolles Hotel in Losone' - unbedingt beibehalten.
