The Ritom-Piora region is a peaceful and quiet destination away from all the hustle and bustle of the urban city life. This hidden gem is rich in flora and fauna and is well known for its breathtaking view of the Swiss Alps surrounded by stunning mountain lakes. 

This region is in the Upper Leventina Valley, in the Canton of Ticino. It is a vast sunny region of incomparable beauty and breathtaking scenery, considered by many to be one of Switzerland’s most enchanting and fascinating valleys. Nevertheless, this immaculate corner of the world is fortunately and incomprehensibly still underused by tourists.

Thanks to the large number of mountain lakes that characterize it, it is also known as the Alpine Lakes Paradise.

These lakes, that are remains of the ice age, with their blue-green color water, can captivate even the most skeptical visitors.
