The Athlete

If movement and physical exercise are your priority, the Lake Maggiore region will amaze you with a wide range of contexts in which to practice the most varied sporting activities.

The rock faces of the Ascona-Locarno region attract numerous climbers and boulderers every year, favored by the mild climate of the southernmost Canton of Switzerland. What about the over 1400 km of hiking trails available to those who love walking and trail running, or the MTB itineraries and cycling paths, perfect for two-wheel enthusiasts? Tennis, golf and water sports are also very popular: canyoning in Ticino, for example, is a dreamlike and exhilarating experience, thanks to the surrounding unspoiled nature. As well as gliding along the mountain ranges, because Ascona-Locarno is an Eldorado for paragliders.
