Zip Line

Looking for a thrill? Would you like to experience the sensation of flying? Ticino’s first and only Zip Line, over 400 metres long, is exactly what you need. The Zip Line Monte Tamaro is nearby the Mountain Station of the cable car at Alpe Foppa. After a brief introduction and a pleasant walk, the starting point of the flying fox is reached, where people are secured to the cable with a harness and pulley. Ready, set, go – fly at 60 km/h with a splendid view over the Piano di Magadino and the Bellinzona area!

The Zip Line Monte Tamaro can be done from the age of 9 and upwards and with a maximum weight of 110 kg.
