Hiking holidays Verzascatal & Centovalli

Hiking: Senteiro Verzasca Swiss

The peaceful valleys of Ticino

Although Locarno is only a few kilometers away, you feel as if you are in a world of your own in the tranquillity of the Verzasca Valley.

High bell towers, artfully built stone arch bridges and small grotti await you here. After the Verzasca Valley you return to the sophisticated Locarno. From there you tike another hike along an old trade route through the Centovalli.
