A bird's-eye view of the Ticino mountains and a panorama as far as the eye can see

An ideal route for discovering alpine hiking without any problems: four stages of limited length, flavoured by some rocky stretches and passages along ridges that are airy, but not too airy. A route also suitable for those who want to introduce young people, perhaps their children, to the mountains beyond the beaten track.

The scenery is that of the chain between Vallemaggia and Onsernone. Alternating between stretches along the slopes and others on the crests, the route offers 360° views of the Ticino Alps, the peaks of Lombardy and Piedmont and more distant massifs, such as the four-thousand metre peaks in the Valais. But there are also glimpses of the valleys nestling at our feet, of forests as far as the eye can see, of villages that look like miniatures from above, of roads resembling slender silver threads. Two thousand metres above the valley floor, it's a bit like feeling like an eagle

Tips for personal equipment

Emphasis should be placed on lightness and avoiding unnecessary weight. The weight of the bag should not exceed 7 kg, all (multi-layered clothing, underwear, fleece, gore-tex jacket). Avoid bulky jackets and cotton clothes. Put your clothes in a plastic bag to protect them from the rain. Reduce packaging as much as possible.

A list of essential equipment will be given to you at the time of your registration.
