Because of possible snowfall, it is a bit tricky to go hiking higher up in the Alps and although ski stations are already open, I do not believe skiing is already that great around at that time of the season, so I thought we could do a great day hike in Ticino.
We will take the 7.01 am train in zurich hb, arrival Bellinzona at 9.21 am.
After a good coffee, the idea is to hike from Bellinzona (237m)- Giubasco (244m)- Cima di Centro (1000 m)-Isone (739m)- Cola di Lago (975m)- Santa Maria (708m)- Tesserete - Lugano (500m). This hike is among the more popular ones in Ticino.
Total distance is 28 kilometer. Estimated time on paper is about 9 hours, but I would assume that we do it in approx. 7 hours. The hike is easy, technically not difficult but given the distance it can be called sportlich.
We will take the 7.01 am train in zurich hb, arrival Bellinzona at 9.21 am and take a train back around 7pm in Lugano.
