Excursions and activities
in the Maggia Valley.
Swim and Relax
A few metres from the campsite is the river Maggia, where natural pools dug into the rock in various shades of blue and fine sandy beaches await you. If you prefer to swim in the lake or in the swimming pool, you can easily reach the Locarno Swimming Centre (also by public transport) or head for Lido Ascona.
Hiking and Trekking
The Maggia Valley as well as the other areas of Ticino are a wonderful location for hiking. The offer is really very wide, from relaxing walks on the valley floor to more demanding hikes at high altitudes. Let yourself be inspired!
Climbing & Bouldering
The Maggia Valley offers an infinite number of climbing walls. In the surroundings of the campsite there are two of the most famous climbing spots: Torbeccio and Ponte Brolla. Torbeccio, easily reachable on foot, offers different levels of difficulty and rock heights, for more and less experienced climbers. In Avegno there is also the possibility to practice bouldering, near Terre di Fuori, just 10 minutes on foot from the Piccolo Paradiso. In Ponte Brolla you can experience climbing on granite, with a maximum grade of 5c+ for a total of 380 metres. For the descent you can use a beautiful forest path. At the campsite reception you can buy the guide "Plaisir SUD" and the climbing guide "Ticino e Moesano".
