Map of routes


With the foundation of the Canton of Ticino in 1803, Comologno became an municipality. The 19th century marked a period of demographic growth, coinciding with the emergence and development of rye straw processing. Following the decline of agriculture, animal husbandry and straw craft, the population declined rapidly.
From Vergeletto, in the area of Zott and near the forest reserve of the Arena, a modern cableway with four cabins takes you up to the Alpe Salei at an altitude of 1783m in only 7 minutes./>

From here you can easily reach the inviting mountain hut, a crystal clear mountain lake (about 20 min. walk), some mountain peaks with breathtaking panoramic views (the Pilone between the Onsernone Valley and the Vergeletto Valley) as well as the Alps and the villages of Comologno and Spruga (about 1,30h walk)./>

Starting right at the Alpe Salei, a hiking trail over the Alps leads you past Alpe Arena to the scenic Alpe Porcareccio with its mountain huts.

After an easy walk of about 40 minutes on a path with a slight incline and a priceless view of the Locarnese to the Lago Maggiore.

Ligünc (1343 m) is situated above Comologno and offers you a fantastic view, far into the valley, down towards Locarno. The unique atmosphere, absolute tranquility without roads or traffic noise make Ligünc something unique.
Bagni di Craveggia
The Baths of Craveggia are located on the Italian-Swiss border, between the Valle Onsernone and the Val Vigezzo. Surrounded by a lush forest, the thermal pools on the banks of the river Isorno offer a breathtaking scenario between heaven and earth.
