Open To Everyone

First Time


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.

Mountain Leader

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!!!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
