Vallemaggia

The Maggia valley offers unique and untouched nature, river landscapes with crystal clear water and countless cascades. High peaks, unforgettable villages, side valleys and mayens leave you with a feeling of innumerable opportunities yet no pressure to do anything.

700km of well-maintained hiking trails of all levels of difficulty await you offering everything from simple walks along the Maggia up to demanding tours as well as circuits along the Sentieri di Pietra leading through villages in the Maggia valley and telling you about their history.

The Maggia valley offers an exceptionally rich habitat and biodiversity. The marsh itself is home to about 600 different species of plants - many of which rare and endangered - representing approximate one quarter of the Swiss flora. Because of the Maggia’s unique section between Riveo and Giumaglio, it has been included in the list of nine major international marshes of Switzerland.

In the sprawling Maggia valley you will also find numerous examples of peasant life that enrich the natural and cultural heritage of the area. Young and old are delighted by the encounters with farm animals as well as species of wild animals such as chamois, marmots, foxes and eagles.

Furthermore, you can see ornate frescoes in churches and chapels or visit ancient and modern architecture such as the church in Mogno designed by the famous Ticino architect Mario Botta. The church is made of Peccia marble and granite and realized in an elliptical shape. All this and more can be found in the Maggia valley.
