The Monte Bar Hut offers 42 beds and an extensive sun terrace with breathtaking view on Lake Ceresio and an extraordinary panorama on the Alps and the Po Valley. The indoor dining room can hosts till 60 people. The Monte Bar hut is a night stop on the famous three day hike Lugano Trekking from Monte Brè to Tesserete. On the rolling hills the itinerary winds its way for 44.4 kilometers. The hiker gets the time to really take advantage of the extraordinary panorama, the beauty and of the peace and quiet that the lush local natural surroundings have to offer. One makes a big circle around Lugano down in the valley.
But of course Monte Bar is also worth a day trip. The shortest walk to the hut is in just 90minutes from Corticiasca, which you can also reach by public transport. Other starting points are Bidogno, Isone or Gola di Lago. The climb to the hut is smooth and suitable for all (including families). Mountainbikers have plenty of options on Monte Bar. In winter one can skin up with skis or snowshoes.
