The Vallemaggia tour takes you from Locarno (200m) to Fusio (Lavizzara Valley), at the foot of the Naret Pass (2,438 meters), travelling through countless villages with characteristic stone houses. The first part of the itinerary is easy, with a few demanding curves. For more expert bikers the last part of the itinerary is instead challenging and interesting.

To reach the Naret pass, at an elevation of more than 2,000 meters, you travel on tight roads with extremely narrow curves.

Route 1: Locarno – Bignasco – S.Carlo travelling through the Bavona Valley all the way to the spectacular Foroglio waterfall.

Route 2: Locarno – Cevio – Bosco Gurin through the Rovana Valley to the Walser village of Southern Switzerland, Bosco Gurin.

Route 3: Locarno – Cevio – Cerentino  through the Valle di Campo to the village of Campo (Vallemaggia).
