3. Immerse yourself in the nature of our region

The Lugano region offers many activities and experiences that allow you to fully enjoy the nature it offers. From the scenic beauty of the valleys, lakes and rivers to the numerous panoramic peaks, lovers of outdoor activities can admire this natural heritage by hiking, mountain biking and road cycling, but also running, yoga and paragliding. Those who prefer water to land can choose from a wide range of activities, depending on the season: from a refreshing swim in the lake to a pedalo ride, from a sailing trip to an afternoon of stand-up paddle boarding or kayaking. Whichever activity you choose to do, don't forget to stop and admire the rich colours along the paths, breathe in the scents and let yourself be amazed by the beauty of the Lugano region.
