Arrival to Vella
Vella – Vrin
The Val Lumnezia (Valley of Light) captivates with picturesque mountain villages, historic cultural treasures and sunny slopes. Vrin has been awarded the coveted Wakker-Preis for the preservation of its architectural heritage.
The high plateau of Plaun da Greina is an area of outstanding natural beauty with a symbolic character, an extensive water meadow, laced with small streams. The change of rock and continental microclimate are also of interest.
1400-metre descent through all vegetation levels - from the rock world of Greina to meadows and alps and the forest belt. The Olivone Tourist Office has interesting information on the region.
Olivone – Acquacalda
A day in or above the Valle Santa Maria, stretching up from Olivone to the Passo del Lucomagno. Preserved marshland areas of national significance with rich flora at Capanna Dötra.
Acquacalda – Airolo
Ascent to Passo del Sole, the rock changes from sediment to granite. The Val Piora is one of the largest and most peaceful high plateaux in the Swiss Alps. On foot or with one of the world’s steepest funiculars down to the Leventina.
Airolo – All’Acqua
The cable car takes you up to Pesciüm. The long panoramic stage to All’Acqua reveals the southern charm of the valley: airy larch woods, the tiny villages of Ossasco, Villa, Bedretto and Ronco down below. Latin-style stone houses dotted between typical Valais wooden houses.
All’Acqua – Ulrichen
The Val Corno stretching up from Cap. Gorno-Gries to Passo del Corno is very interesting in landscape and geological terms. Garnet inclusions in slate on the Griesspass, picturesque Griessee on the edge of a glacier world. Long descent to Goms.
