The Chestnut Trail

In the upper Malcantone region, the route also known as the Chestnut Trail winds its way through hills and birch woods, past pastures and streams. Various vantage points offer a magnificent view of the region and the large mountain ranges in the distance.

The trail starts from Arosio, about 35 minutes from Lugano, the highest village of Malcantone at 859m and with a splendid view of the valleys of Vedeggio, Capriasca and Valcolls, ms also on the Gulf of Lugano. Continue towards the church of San Michele ad Arosio and on the road to Mugena you will find one of the most beautiful viewpoints in the region. After passing the beautiful village of Mugena, continue through the Magliasina river, near the point where it forms a natural swimming pool. Long tree-lined avenues, chestnut woods, cool valleys and characteristic villages.

The circular route ends in Arosio, easily accessible by post bus, free of charge during your stay thanks to the Ticino Ticket, which gives you the right to use all public transport in the region during your stay.

We are waiting for you and don't forget a bag to pick up the chestnuts!
