Ticino River Lodge

Ticino River Lodge offers the first fishing guides service in the canton of Ticino.

What does it mean to provide this kind of service? It means to give tourists a chance to fish without worrying
about anything, alongside with expert anglers who have deep knowledge of the waters of Ticino. This opportunity was not known at our latitudes until 2012, the year Ticino River Lodge was founded. Ticino River Lodge provides skilled guides, able to take tourists to lovely places and allowing them to catch trouts, brook trouts and graylings.
We promote a sustainable and nature friendly fishing.

“We very much recommended these men to all Americans and other nations too. We will not forget this
experience” E. Heller, Illinois (USA)

“These guys are not only preservation-minded geomorphologists but also experts at treating you like kings
with a daily selection of IPA craft beers and local delicacies for lunch break, if you go through Ticino and
want to explore pristine waters in remote valleys get in touch with these dudes, guarantee you’ll have a good
time!” F. Marclay, Switzerland
