    Join me in this pleasant 1-day hike in Monte Boglia (1516m), in Ticino. It’s in fact right at the border between Switzerland and Italy.

    I particularly recommend this program in autumn. The views from the summit are beautiful, we will appreciate the many lakes in the area. In addition, we get a panorama of a large section of the western Alpine Arch. It’s also a great hike to do with kids.

    The trail begins going through the charming Brè, a village full of open-air art and well maintained houses. Then we leave the village and continue to Materone, surrounded by amply green slopes. We continue on a well traced path that cuts across the south slope of Monte Boglia in a beautiful beech forest.

    We reach the Sasso Rosso at 1295 meters. There are some steep sections leading to the top. Finally, the way back down is along the north face of the mountain. We will walk in total about 4-5 hours.

    Do you want to explore Monte Boglia with me? Then please contact me, I will be waiting for your message! Another day hike that I really enjoy is the ascent of Piz Molinera.

    About the Guide


    My name is Elisabetta but everyone calls me Betty. I'm Italian but based in Lugano Ticino, in the Italian speaking part of Switzerland. I graduated in Environmental Science. Besides Italian, which is my native language, I also speak English and German.

    I felt in love with the mountains as a child, during my first experience in the snow and tree climbing in my Grandpa's garden. Now many years have gone by, but my passion is still as strong!

    I covered many trails and paths in the Alps as Monviso Ring, Monte Rosa Trek, Bernina Trek, Altavia n1 Dolomiti...

    I've been to Patagonia (Hielo Continental Sur), Tanzania (Kilimanjaro 5985m), Nepal (Khumbu Valley), Bulgaria (Rodope), Canada (Quebec's Parks), Morocco (Toubkal 4167m), Spain (Sierra Nevada Mulhacen 3479m), Ireland (Carrantuohill 1.39m & Kerry Ring), Norway (Tromso), Mt. Elbrus (5642m) so far….

    Since 2010 I’m an UIMLA Mountain Leader now joint to the Swiss organization ASAM and Nordic Walking instructor. I propose daily and weekly hiking tours between Como (Italy) and Lugano (Switzerland) and in the central part of the Alps from San Gottardo (CH) to Stelvio pass. Especially in Graübunden – Engadin (CH) and Valtellina (I).

    No matter the season, any time of the year is good for hiking and exploring, so let’s do it together!!!
