Alpe Duragno Walk

The circular Alpe Duragno Walk, the longest of the three, offers you a panoramic and constantly suggestive view
The first part of this walk goes along a relatively flat path that runs alongside the mountain and offers a scenic view over Lugano and its lake. Once reached Alpe Duragno you find yourself immersed in a wonderful alpine environment surrounded by grazing cows and goats. Here you can discover how nature meets local agriculture. The route then climbs the upper part of the Duragno Valley to the Capanna Tamaro, an ideal place to stop for a break, where the view widens out towards Sopraceneri. The descent to Alpe Foppa is along an easy gravel road.

We recommend walking it clockwise. The Alpe Duragno Walk is signposted as follows:
