Valle Bedretto

“Greenery, nature and a strong alpine identity”

The Bedretto Valley runs from the Nufenen Pass (2478 m) down to Airolo. Its beautiful alpine landscape boasts hiking trails in Summer and opportunities to choose between including downhill skiing, ski-touring cross-country skiing and snowshoe walking.

From the Gotthard massif towards the Nufenen, you can admire the commanding peaks of Pizzo Pesciora (3120 m), Pizzo Rotondo (3192 m), Pizzo Lucendro (2963 m) and the Chüebodenhorn (3070 m).

The Bedretto valley is home to the villages of Ossasco, Villa, Bedretto, Ronco and All'Acqua, where you can still experience the unspoilt, genuine farming culture, where life is lived in simple, perfect harmony with the surrounding nature. At the foot of the Nufenen Pass, which provides the connection to the Canton of Valais during the Summer, is the source of the River Ticino.

Between Airolo-Pesciüm and Ronco, Bedretto valley's "Road of the Alps", particularly beautiful because of its wild nature and rich colours, unravels at a more ore less constant altitude of some 1700/1800m. The way up to Ronco takes about 4 hours of walking (5 hours from Airolo), while you can go back to Airolo (which takes about 2h45) following the lower path. You can also return by Postbus.
