The luxuriant vegetation, the green chestnut woods, the lake’s iridescent colours – from turquoise to dark green – give a unique character to this still intact region. Given its Mediterranean climate, the average annual temperature is 15°C. In the summer months, the weather is ideal for all water sports.
The Gambarogno Riviera does not only boast its lake and shores. It is also a steep mountain with a sheer drop to the lake: its boundaries span from Monte Tamaro (1961m s/m) to Monte Gambarogno (1735m s/m). Hence its name. From here there is a spectacular view on the Alps, from Monte Rosa to the west, and from the crown of the Ticinese Alps to the north.
