Discover a stunningly beautiful area while walking the Alpages of Val Bedretto route.
Dive into its wild natural landscape, characterised by its vivid colours and relaxing silence. Crossing the alpages surrounded by unspoilt landscapes you’ll have the chance to taste the freshest of cheese directly from the farmer, a joy that is all too rare today.
Between Airolo-Pesciüm and Ronco, at an altitude of 1700/1800m, Val Bedretto's 'Alpages Route' ("Strada degli Alpi") unravels. It's a particularly beautiful route thanks to the wild natural landscape, rich with vivid colours and silence.
For the fittest, there is the possibility of returning to Airolo from Ronco, by taking the long path of the Strada Bassa, lengthening the route of 9km
To explore the route, we recommend buying the official maps of the Federal Office of Topography Swisstopo. In addition, the following website map.geo.admin.ch offers constantly updated data.

The responsible management of litter in the mountains is a matter of common sense. We can all contribute: https://www.montagnepulite.ch/en/golden-rules
