The Riviera del Gambarogno is a world of its own. On the left side of the Lago Maggiore nature unveils a wealth of treasure: just look at the glistening lake, the Lago Maggiore, the soft hills, and enjoy the sight of the most fascinating mountains.


Near Vairano, at the Botanical Garden of Gambarogno, located between the lake and the mountains, there is a world of traditions and mysterious scents, and the panoramic view is overwhelming. Two hundred kilometres of hiking trails wind along the mountains and valley of the Gambarogno, cutting through chestnut woods, crossing meadows that are like giant flower beds, and here and there you will find an Alpine farmhouse.
