Summer at Lake Maggiore

A sunny summer and an atmosphere of Mediterranean warmth right at your doorstep. If you fancy a holiday in the sun, you don't have to go far: the Ascona-Locarno region has everything you could wish for in summer. A unique character, 2300 hours of sunshine a year, a lake where you can enjoy your favourite water sports, valleys where you can relax in nature and Switzerland’s most beautiful hiking trails.

Sunshine, refreshing swims and delicious ice creams: summer’s here! A long, narrow lake, swimming spots where you can go for a dip, beaches for basking in the sun, plenty of water sports, emerald-coloured rivers, mouth-watering ice creams to sample by the lake and countless corners of paradise where you can relax.

Even when it’s hot, hot, hot, Lake Maggiore is the ideal spot for a regenerating and reinvigorating holiday, where you can take advantage of its crystal-clear waters for a swim or indulge in your favourite water sport. Make water the theme of your holiday and dive into the enchanted atmosphere of Ascona-Locarno. Between the search for a perfect suntan, a cool getaway with a hike through the most magical and remote corners of our lush green valleys, and a ride in the SUP at sunset, we know you will not be bored.
