Tie your running shoes and hit the mountain. Trailrunning begins where the road stops. Windy paths with natural obstacles that playfully force you to hop or climb over them. Sweat drips. Your body requires maximum concentration and confidence. The fewest sports are so simple and an adventure at the same time. Around Lake Maggiore you will find the ideal conditions for unforgettable excursions: a sunrise over the Monte Gambarogno, the magical Verzasca Valley, the Lake of Efra and Cardada-Cimetta as well as the majestic Basodino glacier. These five downhill trails definitely belong to the list of things you should do once in a lifetime. But beware, the addictive factor is high!

This short video might just increase your anticipation even further. Have fun!
