Mountain Hiking Weekend in Ticino 

Always wanted to spend a night in the mountains? Then grab your hiking boots and sign up! We are going on a weekend trip to Ticino and spend one night in a mountain hut at Monte Tamaro. The hike will cover 1200m elevation change, take about 5h and take you up to a beautiful mountain ridge.  Fitness, surefootedness and being ok with height are required.
On Sunday, we will visit the famous and beautiful valley of "Valle Verzasca" for a more chill hike alongside the wild river and finish the day with an Italian Dinner in Bellinzona under the walls of the historic castle.

While there will be food and running water at the mountain hut, there are no showers available.

Please bring…

Sporty clothing and a warm fleece
Hiking or good trekking shoes
Hiking socks
Rain and sun protection
Light sleeping bag or sheet for the hut (woolen blankets are provided)
Flashlight, toilet articles
2l of water or soft drinks, snacks and lunch for Saturday and Sunday
Optional: Ear plugs, games, house shoes for the hut, camera, swim suit (on Sunday there is a very cold river.. ;)
> you need to carry everything the two days, so a comfortable backpack is required (20-30l)
