Crossing the Gotthard pass (2106 m) on the old mule path is a special experience. The descent to Airolo takes a detour into the Val Canaria. From Airolo, the route gets serious: the ascent leads along the Strada Alta initially on to Altanca and then around in a second loop, significantly less steep than the route of the famous cable car railway up to Lake Ritom. The Val Piora is home to twenty magnificent mountain lakes; the main lakes are the Ritom, Tom and Cadagno.
This pasture land is rich in rare botanical delights. From June to August, the valley is transformed into a unique mountain garden with thousands of colours and aromas. The culmination of the tour is the Passo del Uomo – from the summit, the route then runs down to the Lukmanier pass. The beautiful mountain landscapes run on through the Valle Santa Maria to Olivone. This route, which mostly descends downwards through the Blenio valley, forms a charming finish to the tour. The Blenio valley is renowned for its romanic church towers. The Gottardo Bike tour ends in Biasca.
