Cardada Cimetta – a mountain to be discovered
Would you ever have thought that it would be in Ticino, Switzerland’s “sun lounge”, that you can visit a panoramic viewpoint right above Locarno that’s easy to reach and from where you can see the lowest point (Lago Maggiore) right up to the highest point of Switzerland (Dufour peak in Monte Rosa)? The modern cable car in Orselina allows you to reach Cardada (1340 m.a.s.l.) in just a few minutes and from there the chairlift takes you up to Cimetta (1670 m.a.s.l.).
This oasis of peace and nature offers a spectacular 360 degree panorama view on Lake Maggiore and the surrounding valleys as well as being a starting point for numerous walks ideal for people of all ages.
For our sportive guests we offer a small plantar reflexology path, an orienteering route, Mountain bike tracks and official Helsana Nordic walking trails.
Families with small children can spend time in the two playground areas, in the Arca Noè, spend some time with the treasure hunt or go for a walk along the play path crossing the shaded an peaceful woods.
Further you can enjoy typical local dishes in one of the five restaurants and mountain huts.
