Kathleen’s Mobile[masked]

If you decide to join after 21:00 on Friday July 29th please send me an SMS so that we can find you on the train or in Bosco Gurin.




05:45 Meet under angel in Zurich HB

06:09 Zürich HB to Bosco Gurin, Paese

10:50 Arrive Bosco Gurin, Paese

11:00 Begin hike.  Easy to Medium level.  Approx. 5 hours walking throughout the day. Lunch, water and photo breaks.  Will be relaxing, not steep, not strenuous.

Hike the Valle di Bosco Gurin.  Bosco Gurin is the highest town in the Ticino. Beautiful valley. There are several choices for hikes from Bosco Gurin. I have several routes in mind.  We will decide together depending on the level of those that show. But we will not do anything very steep or strenuous. IF we do a steep section it will be short. We are going hiking to enjoy the Ticino.  Get some exercise but enjoy the beauty around us too.

Come and enjoy the amazing walks I am planning Saturday and Sunday in Ticino's Valle Maggia!

Can someone please print this map and bring it along for me. I dont have access to a print this week. Thanks!
