Experiences in Ascona


With some 1400 km of paths surrounding our hotel, you’re spoiled for choice at Casa Berno. From the Centovalli to the Valle Onsernone, the Vallemaggia, the Valle Verzasca, and Gambarogno itself, there are hundreds of opportunities to be at one with nature.

If you enjoy wending your way up the slopes to enjoy panoramic views from the summit, or if you love to find yourself immersed in landscapes that bear witness to the age-old relationship between man and mountain, then the valleys of Locarno and Gambarogno and their surrounding peaks are right up your street.

There are plenty of well-signposted itineraries – ranked by level of difficulty – that are suitable for all abilities, from families with children to highly experienced hikers. Follow the route less travelled to discover tiny hamlets and mountain pastures where Ticino’s traditions are still kept alive.

From palm trees to glaciers

The Locarno region and its valleys offer an incredible array of landscapes to explore. Choose between gentle paths winding their way along the shores of Lake Maggiore, and mountain trails that lead you right to the rooftop of Vallemaggia, more than 3000 metres above sea level.

If you’d like someone to show you around the region on foot, you may want to join one of our guided tours. Our guides are a true fount of knowledge, so if there’s anything at all that you’d ever wondered about our local area, ask away!
