Do the same bungy jump as James Bond at the start of the Goldeye movie! It also may be the longest jump in the world, although this seems to be rather disputed. At 220m it's an incredible height to jump, and the surrounding countryside only adds to the event.
Equipment: Spare underwear.

This is for biking fans that would also like to explore a little bit of the lake. In the Muralto area of Locarno you can rest by the hour or half hour "pedalo"... which are basically boats operated by your legs.. you cycle like on a bike, but you move floating over water. It's quite fun and refreshing, and if you have good legs, you could bike out to the River Maggia's Delta: there's nice sandy beaches and interesting birds and ducks - as well as locals swimming and sunbathing
Equipment: nothing special is required

Hiking... great yet easy hiking in Locarno's backyard. if you have a car you can drive to Monte bre and hike out from there. Alternatively take the funicular to Orselina and the cacle-car to Bre/San Bernardo and then hike from there. It's about 1 hour to Cardada and an extra hour to cimetta, at 1671 metres above sea level.l
The views over Lake Maggiore and Locarno are incredible and unforgettable. In the distance, in a clear day, you can easily make out the Alps chain - especially the Montrose
Equipment: comfortable shoes - but the trails are even and wide, so hiking boots aren't a must.
Bring some water, but not too much: there's several mountain huts where you can fill up your bottle. Same goes for food: bring some but don0t exaggerate: you can always find something to eat.
