Outdoor experience without compromise: Canyoning in the Lake Maggiore, Ascona and Locarno region
Do you prefer to be outdoors in your free time? Do you fancy climbing in breathtaking gorges, the most beautiful hiking trails and the varied range of water sports in the Swiss canton of Ticino? Would you like to experience pure action on vacation, but also go shopping in between, for a cappuccino in Ascona or for a cocktail in Locarno?
Then canyoning on Lake Maggiore is just right for you!
With canyoning in Ticino you no longer have to decide whether you prefer to hike, climb, swim or dive - the sport combines pretty much everything you can hope for from an exciting outdoor event. Abseiling and jumping into the wonderful pools of the Ticino canyons are also part of it - and of course having fun on the water slides that are naturally formed by the course of the river.
And the best: We offer canyoning on Lake Maggiore at all levels, for beginners as well as for advanced or experts.
The region on and around Lake Maggiore is one of the most beautiful holiday regions in Switzerland. Here you can be introduced to canyoning for the first time in one of over 60 gorges or you can further develop your existing knowledge and skills.
Canyoning on Lake Maggiore: guided tours for all levels
Cugnasco, Progero, Val di Vira (also: Valle di Vira) – experienced canyonists immediately listen up when they talk about these beautiful and challenging gorges on Lake Maggiore.
A 30 meter abseiling point, jumping and sliding heights of up to 10 meters are the highlights of canyoning in Cugnasco. We offer the canyoning tour Cugnasco at the Pro level, so it is suitable for canyoning enthusiasts with initial experience. Are you particularly athletic and do you play a related sport, and do you also have a head for heights? Then of course you can also register for this popular tour in the Cugnasco Valley!
The challenge can be increased with a canyoning tour in Progero (Gudo), where two adventurous waterfalls and a 30-meter abseiling point await you. Good previous knowledge of canyoning is recommended for our expert tour.
Progero does not offer any possibility to jump, but there are wonderful sliding passages where we can have a lot of fun with one of our favorite elements, the water. Both Cugnasco and Progero are easy to reach from Locarno or Ascona - so if you want to spend more time in the Lake Maggiore region, these are perfect starting points for guided canyoning tours.
It all sounds very exciting and adventurous, but would you like to try out in advance whether canyoning is the right sport for you? Would you like to give your children or friends their first canyoning tour so that they understand what is special about this outdoor experience?
We conduct beginner tours in Val di Vira, a gorge that leads directly into Lake Maggiore. A bathing holiday with a youth group or a family holiday can be perfectly combined with a canyoning taster tour.
You can also get to know the great variety of canyons on Lake Maggiore on our private tours for individualists. Accompanied by a private guide, you make your way through gorges in Minusio (Navegna), in the Valle del Trodo or in the Valle della Pesta.
