Cable car Monte Tamaro


Monte Tamaro is one of the most popular places in the region, alpine thrills on the doorstep. Adventurous activities, such as the Adventure Park, the Flying Fox or the Alpine Coaster, cultural activities, such as the Church of Santa Maria degli Angeli, or sporting activities such as mountain biking or hiking unite in one place.

The cableway station is in Rivera, just 15 km from Lugano. Located a few metres from the highway exit Rivera, it is easily accessible by car. Those who prefer to travel by public transport can take the train to the Rivera - Bironico station and from there it is an 8-minute walk to the cable car station.

The first stop of the cable car is "Piano di Mora", where the Adventure Park is located. Each course in the Adventure Park is made up of a variety of fixed and moving elements that create different levels of difficulty for a total of 68 exercises suitable for the whole family. For those who need to recharge their batteries before or after the course, the Snack Bar is perfect, offering a variety of drinks and food.
Continuing by cable car, you reach Alpe Foppa at 1,530 m asl. A few metres from the station is the Alpe Foppa Restaurant, which offers typical Ticino cuisine and a large sun terrace. It also offers a wide range of services for groups and meetings. A few steps from the restaurant is the magnificent Church Santa Maria degli Angeli designed by the world-famous architect Mario Botta. This imposing building provides a panoramic view of the Ticino.

But that's not all, numerous outdoor and adventure activities ensure an adrenalin rush: the Flying Foy that passes over a valley, the Alpine Coaster, paragliding or the Crime Trail.

Not to be forgotten are the numerous walks and mountain bike trails that start at Alpe Foppa. Particularly worth mentioning are the Monte Tamaro - Monte Lema Traverse and the Sentiero Culturale for walks as well as the Monte Tamaro Bike 362 trail for MTB. Charging stations at Alpe Foppa and Capanna Tamaro as well as repair stations at the departure station in Rivera complete the offer.
