Monte Tamaro is one of the most popular places in Ticino as it offers a unique view of the landscape encompassing the lakes and snow-capped Alps. You can either take the cable car from Rivera that goes up until Alpe Foppa (middle of the mountain) or you start your hike in Rivera.
The climb up to the top from Rivera is a real sporting challenge, but hikers will be rewarded with a fantastic view of 360 degrees. One trail leads almost to the summit of Monte Tamaro, while the other routes unravel along a spectacular trail. These trails are very popular with experienced hikers and families. The Adventure Park, the longest Flying Fox of Switzerland, the Down Hill Mountain Bike trails, a large playground, parasailing, beautiful pond, a restaurant specializing in Swiss-Italian cuisine are just some of the services and experiences that you can find there from May to November. From the top you can enjoy a spectacular panorama that includes the views of the lake of Maggiore, Centovalli, Valle Maggia and Verzasca.
