Alpe Foppa to Monte Lema

Alpe Foppa - Monte Tamaro - Monte Lema

The ridge trail from Monte Tamaro to Monte Lema is a classic among the Swiss ridge trails. The ascent from Alpe Foppa to the look-out on Monte Tamaro requires a bit of endurance, but is well worth the climb for the fantastic views that stretch across Italy to the South, the Grisons Alps to the East, and all the way to the Monte Rosa Massif in the Valais Alps. During the entire hike there are ever-changing glimpses into the Leventina Valley and Alto Malcantone to the East and the mostly Italian Veddesca Valley on the West.

A highlight is the Church of Santa Maria on Alpe Foppa, just after you come up by cable car from Rivera (Monte Ceneri). Built by Switzerland’s darling architect Mario Botta, this unique structure is full of all kinds of interesting details, and should not be missed.

The route can be shortened by walking around the peak of Monte Tamaro, but the 360-degree view is definitely worth the extra time and effort.

At the end of the hike you take the cable car down to Miglieglia from Monte Lema. Word of caution: there may be many people waiting to descend and the cars run only every half hour.
