Ticino, a canton in the Italian part of Switzerland, is stunningly diverse: high alpine mountain ranges rise above the dark blue waters of Lake Lugano, whilst gentle vineyards blanket gentle slopes. The region’s culture is old and beautiful: dreamy mountain villages, old farms, and small relaxed towns lie en route. So, if your legs are tired from mountain biking, there’s plenty to see on rest days too.

On a network of excellently signposted trails, you ride from the Mediterranean-inspired towns on the lakeshore and through the valleys up to lofty heights with magnificent views. You can choose whether you want a sporty challenge or a relaxed holiday. You can ride your e-MTB here too.

The region’s proximity to Italy is noticeable both in the mild climate and also the culinary offerings. The food here has a lot of Mediterranean influences as well as alpine flair. Ticino combines Italian lifestyle with Swiss quality – the fact that Italian is the main spoken language in the region plays a big role.

Ticino’s diversity makes it a great destination for mountain bikers. From the simple gourmet Tour through the wine-growing region to the challenging Brüsacü circular, there is a suitable ride for every level of ability. In this Collection, we present the six most beautiful MTB tours in Ticino.

Getting to Ticino is very easy by train or car. Long-distance trains run from Germany to various Swiss cities, where you can catch a regional train directly to Ticino. By car, you drive over various (spectacular) Alpine passes to Ticino. Alternatively, you can also travel via the Brenner Pass in Austria and Milan.

We, in Ticino, are looking forward to welcoming you!
