Floating through the air on the Tyrolienne and enjoying the landscape at the same time: you can also make this dream come true in Ticino. The longest zipline in Switzerland can be found on Monte Tamaro.
Tyrolienne on Monte Tamaro
The Tyrolienne on Monte Tamaro starts near the top station on Alpe Foppa. You can get the safety devices at the arrival station of the Tyrolienne. There you return them also later.
After you have received your equipment, you walk about 500 m along a gravel road to the starting point of the zip line. After a short briefing you will be secured with a pulley on the steel cable, which is connected with a safety belt.
Over a length of about 400 m you will now descend into the valley at a speed of up to 60 km/h. An automatic braking system stops the ride safely at its destination. The view goes to the mountains, the Magedino plain and the area of Bellinzona.
Children from 9 years old may participate. The maximum weight is 110 kg. The Tyrolienne is open from April to the first week of November from 10:30 to 16:40 (in July and August until 17:40).
