Staged hikes

What could be better than spending a night in a mountain hut surrounded by the silence of nature? Life in the high mountains is a unique experience, away from everyday life and immersed in nature, but at the same time close to the lake and within striking distance of the Mediterranean atmosphere that only the Ascona-Locarno region can offer.

For all experienced hikers, we suggest a selection of the main staged hike routes The Via Alta Vallemaggia and the Cristallina trail are two examples of challenging hikes during which you will pass through untouched landscapes of great contrast, rocky slopes, pastures and woods, until you reach altitudes of 3,000 metres.
