Two of them are in Bosco Gurin, the highest village in Ticino. The Ferder and Bosco Gurin trail. The Walser village enchants with its charm and the legends that are very present here. In winter, it is a popular winter sports resort, thanks to its altitude (1504 m a.s.l.) and favourable geographical position, Bosco Gurin is quite a snow-sure place. Perfect for an exciting snowshoe tour through landscapes covered in deep snow.
Not far away, also in the Rovana Valley, is the Campo Vallemaggia trail. The little houses of the pretty village look like mushrooms sticking out of the snow because of the high snow on the roofs. Scenically, it is a very exciting, sunny and varied tour that leads through the sparse forest and offers beautiful views of the village of Cimalmotto and the surrounding mountains.
Cardada Cimetta, Locarno's local mountain, is the perfect destination for an excursion into nature near the city. Reachable by cable car in just a few minutes, here you have the unique opportunity to trudge through the fresh snow while enjoying the panorama of Lake Maggiore. At over 5 km, it is the longest of the four tours. There are, however, plenty of opportunities to get a bite to eat in a restaurant or warm up with a delicious cappuccino.
