Nature and forest reserves

Beautiful natural oases where flora and fauna can develop freely. There are numerous nature and forest reserves in the Ascona-Locarno region that are just waiting to be discovered.

Here on Lake Maggiore, we can still enjoy a very intact biodiversity today. After the abandonment of intensive land use, between the 16th and 19th centuries, the tree vegetation has regained space, creating interesting forest formations, which have given rise to impressive forest reserves that are home to an important variety of plant and animal species. Official hiking trails lead through the forest reserves and allow visitors to immerse themselves in this magical atmosphere and get to know nature at its purest. The Bolle di Magadino, a nature reserve unique in its kind, also offers a special insight into the animal world. There is plenty to see on the exciting educational trail.
