  • Water sports in Lugano

    From sailing to windsurf, from water-skiing to scuba diving, from wakeboard to other fantastic proposals.We did rent a motor boat. It was a great fun. Some hours across the lake with its beautiful mountains around - fantastic. rent belong the lake or ask in your accomodation.

  • Sports on Monte Generoso

    Paragliding, walking or extreme climbing - all possibilities on this mountain near to Lugano.Easier flight, to take-off from a place next to the Motto di Cima forest (1600 ms), or from Vetta (1700 ms) towards Valle di Muggio (used by the most expert paragliders).Mount Generoso is ideal for flights towards Mendrisio, Castel San Pietro and other...

From here it's...
