From energy to magic

Monte Lema - Monte Tamaro Take the cableway to the top of Monte Lema and 10 minutes later, you’ll be rewarded with a spectacular view from the top of the mountain.

Thanks to its stunning views, The Monte Lema – Monte Tamaro hike is one of the most popular in Canton Ticino; on one side you’ll be gazing towards the Locarno region, the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa and on the other over the alluring Gulf of Lugano. Although this hike is generally quite tough, at least you start off comfortably seated in a cable car which takes you to the top of Monte Lema. Once you reach Monte Tamaro, the descent towards Rivera in a cable car is just as relaxing; from there you can take the train back to Lugano.
