Monte Tamaro – Malcantone

From Monte Tamaro there are various MTB routes in the direction of Malcantone where they branch off into a typical Ticino region of Sottoceneri, the gently undulating hilly landscape and dense vegetation, picturesque villages and large chestnut groves characterize it. The proposed itineraries take advantage of the official MTB network that winds through this fascinating territory.

The five proposed itineraries cover in the first stretch, between the arrival of the cable car at Alpe Foppa and Arosio, the same path of “Monte Tamaro – Panoramic Circuit”, and then branch off into the network of paths of Malcantone. Each proposal has its own peculiarities that we invite you to discover in the individual reference cards.

The proposals concern circular itineraries with departure and arrival at the valley station of the Monte Tamaro cable car in Rivera. Some itineraries can be ideally interrupted at the bottom of the valley, for example at Ponte Tresa (public transport on site: boat/train), Caslano (boat/train), Magliaso (little train) or Agno (little train). The line of the train is the Ponte Tresa – Lugano which, at discretion, transports MTBs. From Lugano to Rivera there are several trains offering limited MTB transport; inquire in time about the limitations.
