Monte Tamaro is for everybody

If you can't convince your kids to conquer the Lake Ritom and they are just plainly not interested in hiking I have a solution! Monte Tamaro. Everybody loves Monte Tamaro!

You can hike, mountain bike, climb, jump, suntan, eat, visit a church or even ride a tyrolean traverse or an Alpine roller coaster. Peaked your interest, haven't I!?!

So, for a great day's outing head to Rivera, which is easily accessible by car and public transport, a convenient cableway whisks you up to Alpe Foppa at 1,530 metres above sea-level. With its big restaurant, and the Church of S.Maria degli Angeli (designed by architect Mario Botta), Alpe Foppa is also the starting point for walks with panoramic views as well as being home to an innovative play park for kids, a Alpine-Coaster bobs, Flying Fox and a new track for Downhill fans.

The Bike Park, meeting point with snack bar and the Adventure Park are situated at the cableway’s middle station. This amazing acrobatic experience comprises 3 routes of varying degrees of difficulty suspended high among magnificent ancient beech trees.

Alpe Foppa is the starting point for many trips. You can choose form a 20 minute stroll to a three hourwalk around the area.  The Tamaro-Lema hike will take you roughly 4 1/2 hours.

If you are into mountain biking there are various downhill and freeride trails and should the Queen have inspired you during the Olympic opening ceremony you can even try paragliding to the landing site at Bironico.
