It’s time to get active!
For adventurers. For risk takers. For water fans.
Ticino. Lake Maggiore. The mountains. The scenery. The valleys. The climate. Our sun-blessed canton takes all these ingredients and turns them into a colourful pot-pourri of sporting activities and challenges. Vista Lakefront Boutique Hotel is your sport hotel by the lake. From here, you can scale peaks, hike to mountain huts and pastures, and dive into the turquoise waters of the lake. And did we mention sailing, golf, tennis, biking, climbing, trail running, and paragliding?
Ascona is also the venue for exciting sports events. Take a look at our event calendar.
