Mount Lema is the most majestic summit of Italian Switzerland. Its natural green terrace overlooks the Southern valleys of Ticino, the Lake of Lugano, the Valleys of Luino and of Lake Maggiore.
The astounding view stretches all the way to embrace the Grigioni and Bernese Alps, the mountain peaks of Valais and the Po Plain up to Milan.
Mount Lema constitutes an important natural oasis, from which numerous and fascinating hikes start out; these follow the mountain crest and wind around mountain ridges through a breathtaking scenario. Mount Lema offers you a close up view of mountain life: it’s possible to meet up with Scottish cows, discover ancient iron mines, taste fresh milk from the pastures, walk across broad pasturelands and take in the suggestive atmosphere of the characteristic villages of Malcatone.
Thanks to its climate, and its natural environment, Mount Lema is the ideal starting base to experience the magic of paragliding and riding your mountain bike on uncontaminated routes, letting yourself go in free down hills.
The astronomical observatory gives visitors the chance to see start “up close” thanks to its telescope with a diameter of 410 mm. The software enables the automatic tracking of the celestial objects, making it fun and easy to find stars and constellations.
