The spectacular high-altitude hike leads through the entire Sottoceneri above Lake Lugano.

In a large double curve, the Sentiero Lago di Lugano winds its way through the varied landscape above the lake and town of the same name. First, it goes from Magliaso to Monte Tamaro and Monte Bar. Then along the border with Italy and past the Denti di Vecchia with Monte Boglia – the most impressive viewpoint of the Sottoceneri – to Monte Brè. Via Lugano, the route leads to Monte San Salvatore and down to the picturesque town of Morcote. On the other side of the lake, the route climbs back up to Monte San Giorgio and on to Monte Generoso. In the Valle di Muggio you get a great impression of the most beautiful valleys in Switzerland. Finally, you reach the wine-growing area of Mendrisiotto.
