The Blenio Valley in northern Ticino extends from the Lukmanier Pass (1914 meters above sea level) down the valley to Biasca. In summer, hikers encounter well preserved old villages and art treasures on the valley trail from Biasca via Acquarossa to Olivone. The valley also offers a broad spectrum of cultural offerings, including a large number of museums and churches.
The Leventina is mostly known as a transit axis leading from the Gotthard Mountain to the south. At certain points in the partially narrow valley, where trains, roads and super highway emerge, one does not expect to find scenic beauty and cultural and historic sights - but this assumption is unfair. There are, for example, the Romanesque Church of San Nicola in Giornico, the Ritom Reservoir Lake, and the high mountain trails along the valley flanks of the Leventina.
A region of extraordinary beauty that from Lake Maggiore (Ascona, Locarno) weaves its way through the Alps. A valley where nature, culture, emotion and taste come together perfectly: Vallemaggia, the magic valley.
