Mountain Trails

Panoramic trails of various lengths and difficulties departing from Alpe Foppa. Along these routes you will discover the beauty of the Ticino landscape with panoramic views over the Lugano and Locarno area, the valleys, the lakes and the Swiss Pre-Alps. The Monte Tamaro – Monte Lema is one of the most known altitude hikes in Switzerland, as it is offering breathtaking views in unspoilt natural surroundings. The perfect excursion for a one-day escape to the mountains.
We suggest the departure from Rivera by 10:00.


Local Excursions

Our recommendations for circular hikes starting and finishing at Alpe Foppa. These paths are suitable for those who want to enjoy a medium-length mountain hike and are looking for tranquility and breathtaking views, without giving up the convenience of returning to Rivera by cable car.

Health paths

Three walks of various lengths, from very short to medium, highly recommended and full of pleasant surprises. Each health trail is dedicated to a theme: culture, panorama or nature. These circular routes start and finish at Alpe Foppa and are ideal for families. The health paths are specifically signposted.

Between mountain and valley

The main variants, from the shortest and easiest to the longest and most demanding, for those who wish to descend the mountain, even if only partially, avoiding the cable car ride. All the proposals are also very interesting in the opposite direction, to climb the mountain on foot and repay the effort with an excellent lunch at the Alpe Foppa Restaurant.
