From Bosco/Gurin to the Valle Vergeletto

Easy or demanding Trekking north west of the Lago Maggiore

Four-day trek in the wild and rugged valleys of the Ticino canton in the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland. With their rich vegetation and their traditional hamlets the valleys northwest of the Lago Maggiore are a paradise for hikers interested both in nature and culture.

Our tour leads us on panoramic trails across several passes from Bosco/Gurin to Ronchini near Locarno. We stay in inns in quiet hamlets. The trek is easy without the side-trips or more demanding if you choose to climb the summits along the trail.
