From the eastern shore of Lake Maggiore to the summits of the mountains. The shores of Gambarogno are particularly popular for their secluded beaches and lidos in the towns along the riviera, which look out over a stunning lake on which you can try your hand at countless water sports. The village of Vira Gambarogno, with its church of San Pietro overlooking the lake and typical centre of tightly packed houses, narrow alleyways and arcades, is considered the historical centre of Gambarogno. From here, a road leads straight into a wild landscape of never-ending chestnut forests towards mountain villages, and finally the most remote village of all, on the border with Italy: Indemini, with a peaceful and harmonious feel, is a tiny grey gneiss village with stone roofs and romantic wooden pergolas. The historical and cultural wealth of Gambarogno comes in many guises: tradition, hiking and even centres of energy. Centocampi, on the Monti di Caviano, for example, is home to the last stable with a thatched roof in the whole of Ticino. At Vairano, near Sass da Grüm – a place of power home to a hotel focused on wellness and sustainability – there is a Sentiero dello Yoga, a trail surrounded by a stunning forest where you can practise yoga while in deep conversation with nature. Alpe di Neggia, which can be reached easily by bus or car, sees the start of a captivating mountain trail through a landscape dotted with Alpine roses right up to the summit of Monte Gambarogno, which will treat you to truly breath-taking views.
