Ticino is rich in extraordinary places waiting to be discovered by you. Where else can you hike on alpine heights or in quiet valleys in the morning and sit comfortably under a palm tree on the lake shore in the afternoon? Even remote areas can be easily reached by bus and train and invite you to go on a discovery tour and visit less well-known places. As a hiking enthusiast, you will appreciate and love the mountains and valleys of the Swiss canton as a natural paradise with around 4,000 kilometers of well-maintained hiking trails.

In June 2019, six adventurous bloggers will each be exploring a spectacular hiking route in various Swiss regions: Climb the Mythen near Lucerne, enjoy the view from the San Salvatore in Ticino or a relaxed rail hiking trip? Switzerland also has something for every type of hiker in the Valais, Graubünden and Bern region, with a wide variety of hiking trails to choose from — the path quickly becomes the destination! Experience the Mediterranean atmosphere of Canton Ticino on these three hikes together with "Fräulein Draussen" (bhc2019.myswitzerland.com/region/tessin)!

There's also a great competition: Test your knowledge of Switzerland and win your very own personal trip to Switzerland for two: With SWISS you fly to Switzerland, where you will explore the Bern region and Ticino. A total of five overnight stays await you at the Handeck Hotel and Natural Resort and the Hotel Belvedere Locarno. On top of that, you'll get two Swiss Travel Passes, with which you can use buses, trains and ships on your journey free of charge.
