Hiking

Verzasca is a hiker's paradise, very much "off the beaten track". It is known for its wilderness without cable railways, tourist resorts and crowds which you'll often find in other alpine valleys.

There are hikes for everyone, whether you're very experienced or not, whether looking for a multiple-day hike or a 1-hr short walk. Either way you'll be awed by the wild nature of the valley.

Some of the hikes listed below end in one of the neighboring valleys. They are very interesting but are problematic if you have to go back to the valley. Make sure you check the bus schedule first as such trip will take 2-3h.
