Gondola rail travels from Rivera up to the Alpe Foppa at 1530-meter altitude. The telecommunications antenna stands a good 300 meters higher up - and the actual Tamaro summit is 432 meters higher. On a clear day you even catch a glimpse of the Monte Rosa massif from the summit and Lema hiking path. Hiking paths lead in all directions, including Indemini, and mountain-bikers get their kicks on the downhill stretches as well as at the bike park.

The mountain restaurant, summer toboggan run, flying fox, large children���s playground by the mountain station and the high ropes adventure park by the mid station all make Monte Tamaro what it is ��� namely an adventure packed mountain!
