Lugano Trekking tappa 3: Cap. Monte Bar - Tesserete

Lugano Trekking! - Discover the full itinerary

This experience consists in a three-day trek that gives you the necessary time to really take advantage of the extraordinary panorama, beauty and of the peace and quiet that the lush local natural surroundings have to offer!
This proposal is especially attractive from the naturalistic viewpoint (geology, flora and fauna).

Half way through each leg you've got the opportunity to stop for lunch and at the end of each day you can stay overnight in a comfortable mountain hut.
This offer has been quite a successful one and represents an exciting experience that allows you to hike along a fascinating itinerary that starts at Bré, just overlooking Lugano and ends at Tesserete.
